3.0 out of 5 stars Troublesom installation 30 Mar 2011
It is not the first time I install McAfee for a DVD. And I am thorough. Never the less it refused to be installed the first three times I tried. I almost gave up. Only the fourth time I succeeded. I quite often get a warning that my computer is in danger. Which it is not. I start to believe that it is a sort of sales promotion. It is like harassment. And at the same time I get reminders from my former subscription - that is has run out! There seems to be lack of communication between my new installation/subscription and the old one - or my "account". Now, this is a 3 users DVD, and my wife - who is brigt too! - had the same problems jusst today. Writing this, I get another false warning! Improvements would be welcomed.

4.0 out of 5 stars It just works 17 Oct 2010
By Thrud Fan VINE VOICE
Verified Purchase
Put the disc in my 32 bit Windows 7 PC let it load up, connect to the web and update. It's now sitting on my PC doing its job without me noticing it. That's all I wanted, no dramas, no hassles and at time of writing 15 for a 3 PC licence good value for money.
I didn't install the quick clean or parental controls so can't comment on them the rest seems fine.

PS it takes a age to do a full scan but that maybe because I have a large amount of storage on the machine.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not happy with this product 28 Feb 2011
Verified Purchase
My first issue is not with this product at all but the previous version, after my one year subscription to McAfee ran out I found I was unable to use the software at all. The license gives you one year free (free?) updates but, I bought the right to use the software, I did not lease it. Why then when the one year period was up did McAfee block my use of it? This is not legal in my opinion. Having had my ability to protect my computer withdrawn I was forced to buy an update sooner than I would have liked

I purchased a new version of McAfee despite the above because I believed that as an industry leader the product would be good however, I have since found that not to be the case. The default installation is from the internet, I took this option not realising that the full download is 1.3GB. I have a fast 30MB link so it only took ten minutes but even this was unnecessary as I could have opted for the two minute update. For someone with a slower link this could take hours, an estimate of d/l time or at least notification of the size of the download should be given prior to the installation source decision.

Once installed, I rebooted my machine, when I did so I noticed that the software was not running (because the PC ran so fast without it). I tried to run it manually but the programme crashed. I attempted to reinstall it this time from the CD. An installation error then followed, I removed the software but, the error persisted. Then I tried to contact McAfee for help, it took me nearly twenty minutes to find a way of asking them for help all the website wants to do is sell you more McAfee products, eventually I did but it took them 36 hours to reply only to inform me that I need to log a call with someone else.

5.0 out of 5 stars Used as a subscription renewal 25 Jun 2011
Bought this as did not want to pay McAfee's renewal price as even discounted it was twice what it cost to purchase new from Amazon. Put in the CD half expecting to have to do a re-install, the first pop up screen gives you the option of either a re-install or just using the Product Key (on the back of the CD case) to extend my subscription. Took less than a minute and added another year on to my existing subscription, including the 3 weeks I had left on it.

Posting this review for info for anyone else in a similar situation.

1.0 out of 5 stars Mcafee Internet security 2011 18 Oct 2011
I bought Mcafee internet security 2011 through Amazon from vendor Creativegenes. THe CD wasn't working and failed to install. On trying to install the screen shows Gathering information for installation and does not proceed even after hours. I have a good internet speed, if that is what is claimed to be a problem.

3.0 out of 5 stars use doesn't signify a jury of honor 7 Jun 2011
Well, summing up, surely McAfee and another antivirus are effective until some degree, as total protection in Internet I think it's impossible.
What I don't want of this and another similar products is I'm ready to pay for a service, yes
Another thing, and a great worry is I'm not absolutely interested to marry with MacAfee. The disc says: "Use valid for three times", and three times is all I want. Incessant demands of E-mail, name, etc, are very worrying. If I want a woman I use to say I want to use her three times and reject. McAfee seems do not understand that simple and ancestral idea.
