4.0 out of 5 stars Why does this box even exist? 15 Jun 2014
By Inspector Gadget VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
McAfee obviously do no have environmental concerns. There's no physical disc inside this package, just a card to verify a software download. In a world of cloud storage I guess this is the way forward, but why exactly do we need the box if that is the case? It's not even like it's in a DVD Amaray case that you can recycle. It means you need your laptop/computer to be connected to the Internet for that to happen instead of just installing from a CD or USB.

The software is as reliable as ever with McAfee, it ain't the best out there but it's good at what it does in terms of parental controls, firewall, and dead software clean-up (which I really needed). Once it's up and running it's non-intrusive and provides security and safety without you even knowing that it's operating. The package does work with PC and MAC, but MAC only gets the Internet security and none of the extras (MACS are not as prone to Internet danger anyway).

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything you would expect from McAfee. 17 Aug 2014
By Karen Baxter VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
When I first started using a home PC (which was many, many years ago) most viruses arrived onto your computer via floppy disks, especially third party floppies and those copied from computer to computer, they were fairly easy to remove by either deleting various
pieces of code or by purchasing either Norton Securities or McAfee and installing them onto your computer via floppy disks.

Then with the advent of internet access more and more threats to your PC became widespread and the security of your data became more precarious. Internet Security programs were launched by various companies (the most well known being Norton's and McAfee), whichever one of these giants you started with usually meant that you would stick with them throughout the years purchasing and installing the many upgrades and new programs as they became available.

I was a McAfee user then and now, so I was pleased to trial and review this latest program McAfee Internet Security Dual Protection for Mac and Windows 2014. Not being a Mac user I can only review the Windows element.

The first thing I tried after installing was the quickclean software which helps to remove the clutter from your pc, this certainly seemed to do the job it was designed for. I was suitably impressed with the impressive security software which automatically scans your emails, internet and files to protect you against threats like viruses and Trojans. Any suspicious-looking material is blocked thanks to the Active Protection to keep your computer secure. Equally impressive is the two-way firewall, and safe searching icons that let you know when a website is safe to click on. Top marks must be given for McAfee's anti-bot protection system which prevents your information being sent to cyber criminals.

4.0 out of 5 stars I use McAffe on my PCs and now my Mac 2 May 2014
By Paul Stewart VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I thoroughly trust McAfee to keep my PCs secure and virus free while browsing.

A friend kept boasting that he did not need anti-virus software on his MAC as there were no viruses 'in the wild' for MACs. Then he caught one! He had to take it to a MAC specialist to be cleaned.

This McAfee package would have protected his MAC as well as my PC and laptop.

Although it works with a MAC, it is just the anti-virus suite.

On my PC, it is the full package including Firewall and virtual keyboard. I love the virtual keyboard when logging onto my bank's website. My key presses cannot be intercepted.

I was pleased that McAfee have simplified the user interface. Previous versions of Kaspersky internet security had become quite intimidating. I run a resource monitoring program on my windows sidebar. There was no increase in resource usage after installing this software, excellent.

4.0 out of 5 stars Standard anti-virus software with a twist 16 April 2014
By Dr. Paul Ell HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Well the twist is that the software runs on both a Mac and Windows machine so it covers two bases which is good plus the interface is more or less identical. No doubt anti-virus software is vital for Windows machines. I'm less certain about this for Macs and have never discovered a virus on any of my Macs. Better safe than sorry though.

Others have commented on the lack of a CD contained in the pack but with fewer and fewer machines having DVD readers I think this makes sense. I only have a rather old PC that has the capability to use a DVD. The software seems to do the job though I have a feeling that all the main stream anti-virus software will provide the protection you need.

The only problem I have with McAfee is that I have recurrent problems trying to register new software. I find the registration system clunky and am often asked to pay for the product I have a registration code for! Installation of this software was no different so a star is dropped for this. I wish they'd wipe their database and just let users install the software rather than wanting your details registered so they can sell you more products in the future.

Overall a reasonable choice of software especially for Mac and PC users.

4.0 out of 5 stars Safe and secure 26 Feb 2014
By Mr. Stephen Redman VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This package continues to be great value and totally safe. I am personally convinced that there is no product on the market in this category that will give you a safer experience of computing. Anti-virus, firewall, anti-spam, anti-spyware -all are taken care of with McAfee's expertise and reputation behind it.

The only reason I haven't given 5 stars (and I would have proffered 4.5) is that the user interface is neither friendly or modern. Offering the same user interface screen as McAfee Total Protection, it seems poor compared with previous versions and certainly behind Kaspersky and Norton. Having said that, the idea is that you shouldn't be looking at it all the time, and the real plus is the speed it works at and the limited difference it makes to the speed of your pc.

Some people will ask what is the difference between this product and McAfee Total Protection? The answer is not a lot - primarily the latter offers data encryption as an added level of security on your machine. If you want to encrypt then pay the small difference, otherwise get this product.

This product has the added advantage of being able to be used on a Mac

My advice is don't mess around with unheard of brands. You know McAfee is safe and secure, so just buy it.
