I have had serious trouble with this product. There is a problem with registering this product, possibly because of incompatibility with Internet Explorer. The result is that you cannot receive updates or check for new virus definitions, although it keeps prompting you to register and receive updates every time you start your PC. When you try to register via their website an "Error" message comes up. There are internet blogs of people encountering the same problem and unfortunately McAfee "technical support" is unhelpful. I contacted them via the website, and re-installed the product as advised - same problem! I then messaged them via their technical support blog and my thread was deleted. I have wasted much time over this and have finally decided to buy Norton/ Symantec Security system instead, which I have used before with no problems.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fitting the requirement 7 Sep 2009
I reviewed various 'internet security' packages and had made my mind up that 'McAfee' suited my requirements. My next job was to buy at the best price. This was made easy as I have used Amazon for a number of years and once again they did not let me down.
If I had to sum this up I would say that if it is quality and cost you need do not waste any more time, use Amazon.

1.0 out of 5 stars Utter rubbish but good customer service 18 Oct 2008
By S. Williams VINE VOICE
Oh dear. I was hopeful about this software - McAfee have a big name in the industry. But it seems to have failed.
I installed the product - it took 3 attempts and eventually it worked, and on the desktop was a big shiny M. It all worked absolutely fine, except that you could not open the Backup & Restore section, nor the Firewall Lockdown section. But, not to worry, because everything else worked.
Then I switched it on the next day, and the first thing we noticed - it took 3 attempts to open it. Then there was a big red X saying that my computer wasn't protected. The virus scan, spyware checker et al had all failed.
So, I installed ,cAfee Virtual Technician, which failed to help, and after an half hour conversation over IM with a technican, I was running through the computer's hidden files, using CommandPrompt like a pro and eventaully had to open the PC in safe mode, and type in a long code, then my Windows XP spent the next 4 hours scanning each and every file in DOS to see if there was a virus. It found one, and deleted it.
Excellent, I thought. It must be working!
So, I switched the PC back on, and Security Centre wouldn't even open.
Back onto McAfee IM and the technicans took me through more complex instructions, and eventaully told me to uninstall it, and then reinstall the most recent version from their site.
So, by now (5-ish hours later) I wasn't very happy at all. Nevertheless, I went onto McAfee.com and lo and behold, it wouldn't install or download. Absolutely fed up. I'll be posting it back tonight.
The single star is for the friendly people at McAfee who tried in vain to help me.
