I got a free trial of Mcafee when I bought my laptop and decided to buy the year package. All was well until I got a virus. I tried scan after scan which failed to remove the virus. I then contacted the support service- which was totally useless. I contacted the service centre, managed to figure out what how to contact- incomprehensible instructions.I sent email after email -no response. I then phoned up the service and again incomprehensible and no use.Through my own efforts, I got rid of... (read more)

I had tried all the other virus protections and nothing worked properly, so I just rang Mcafee and explained that I was the dumbest person on the planet and what could they do. A great Canadian person rang me back and they installed the McAfee software on my computer from their desk, this software is so simple: green ticks on the websites which are... (read more)

I made the mistake of buying McAfee Virus Scan Plus as a download in March 2009.
It didn't install but did remove existing protection.

When I wanted to get my money back, I was told that it was not McAfee's problem & would need to contact a sister company.
When I asked for details of thier complaints department, I was told there was... (read more)

Slows down PC quite a lot. Look also at the reviews of this on AV-Bulletin. Scary! It misses lots of viruses.
This is the market leader? Must spend all their R&D money on advertising! (read more)

McAfee VirusScan Home Edition 8.0 used to be OK, but the last year has been a nightmare, I have spent hours reinstalling perhaps a dozen times.
Then to make matters worse there is a thing in the small print which they use to recharge your credit card each year to get the next subscription. They do this without asking, and even do it after your card has expired even when you refuse to give them new card details, a matter I have taken up with my cards financial fraud unit. (read more)

McAfee VirusScan Home Edition 8.0 is as sharp as anti-virus software can be. It is 100% effective at detecting and it completes the task of scanning detecting very quickly, and it does block 6 ports of the PC as well. (read more)
