Pros What is there to like about a product and tech support that don't work?
Cons I had McAfee security products for years, and my computer still got infected with a virus--a virus that kept the new version from working. McAfee tech support was NO help in solving the problem, and I finally had to give up on McAfee altogether.
Summary I dislike the product because it never worked, and contacting McAfee tech support was a HUGE waste of time.
Pros It works for people who dont want change
Cons Its installation is a drag
Customer support stinks
The ammount of found viruses stinks compared to other virus programs
Takes up too much harddrive space
Takes up too much ram
Slowed my restart by 35 percent...
Summary Not worth the hassle, plus if you have a problem your not going to get it fixed
The customer support is the WORST. The program takes up too much space. Slowing my computers restart time by 35 percent. Do not by mcaffee
Pros I dont' see any pros. Before I signed up and after, I never run accros the virus.
I wanted to try software (being bored), but regret because didn't see any benefits of it.
Cons They'll keep your credit card on file and charge you in the future. Cancellation proces is not that easy at all. Sales rep will do anything to keep you in.
Software is resource hungry, heavy. Constanlty running updates, notifications etc
Summary I''ll never buy any virus protection from them ever agiain.
Pros Faster than Norton and doesn't slow down boot time like Norton does.
Cons No cons found
"Mcafee is Good"on by sunvit
Pros Better utilisation of system resourses. Filters most of the spam email. Has a mind of its own and runs update and does scanning one its own. Net result, you must not be even aware that you have an Internet Security Suite on your PC.
Cons Lesser updates per day. Lower detection date compared to Antivir and Norton. Bad in identification of Phising Mails and cookies.
Summary I have tried Norton 2010. That makes your PC slow. Mcafee is better than Norton Internet Security 2010 and not better than NIS 2009.
Mcafee customer support is good.
