1 out of 5 eggsStay Away!

Pros: Absolutely none!

Cons: Everything! I had McAfee Antivirus on 4 different office computers and all 4 got viruses so bad that I wound up just trashing the whole computer! And yes the updates were done automatically and the program was enabled and always running; just in case you're thinking that I wasn't using it correctly. It was also supposed to be the "Enterprise Edition" which was supposed to be better than the retail version.

Other Thoughts: Unfortunately, McAfee comes pre-installed on a lot of computers these days. Do yourself a favor and uninstall anything with McAfee's name on it ASAP. I learned the hard way.

4 out of 5 eggsTricky at first

Pros: It's McAfee - they know what they're doing - wizard was quick and easy to follow.

Cons: Installation was brutal - I was upgrading from 2007 so I just put in the CD like it says. Took forever and caused constant errors. Had to power down the computer manually, restart, and uninstall everything related to McAfee. Went to reinstall it and it worked great, as expected.

Other Thoughts: Uninstall previous version if you're upgrading.

Rebate was also tough to figure out, since they ask for a seven digit code when clearly there isn't one.

1 out of 5 eggsForget upgrade rebate

Pros: If you need to increase your blood pressure this is the product for you. Tech support is in the Philippines, rebate support is in Mexico (El Paso, Texas, Mexico) They are all totally incompetent. Two years running I have not received the rebate. They lose things and then loss everything. You resend them and they lose them again.If you call them, please call the suicide prevention number afterwards.

Cons: If you already have high blood pressure it will go up higher

Other Thoughts: McAfee rebate is a con game. They don't honor them.After everyday for 2 weeks I give up just like last year. There won't be a next year.

1 out of 5 eggsResource Hog

Pros: None compared to other AVs I've used.

Cons: Slows my machine way down too much. McAfee always has been a resource hog. Makes playing games very difficult and slows my web browser down. Their servers are very slow. It takes a long time when it's updating the definitions so when you boot up you sit there waiting for it to finish.
It not easy to configure compared to other AV programs I've used.

Other Thoughts: It's not easy to clean it off your machine so I used a 3rd party uninstaller which seemed to help. I'm using a different AV now and I'm able to play games again and surf the web a lot faster.

1 out of 5 eggsVery poor security product. Not good at all.

Pros: It is a somewhat of a kind of security software for your PC's protection against Viruses, spyware, etc. Better than having no security protection software on your computer.

Cons: The manual scan is extremely slow and poorly engineered. This security product slowed down my PC big time. It is not light on resources at all. I was not satisfied with Mcafee for my computer at all. I don't think that I will ever go with or buy another Mcafee security product for my PC. I uninstalled it and switched to Panda Anti-virus + Firewall 2008 . It was much better, much faster manual scanning, and did not slow down my computer at all.

Other Thoughts: A good recommendation from me would be Panda Security products. Not Mcafee!! :-( I would not and would never recommend Mcafee security products to anyone for their PC.
