3.0 out of 5 stars Slowed me right down..., 18 Aug. 2014
This review is from: McAfee Internet Security - 1 user (Mac) (CD-ROM)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
One thing I've always liked about Mac's is their inherent security, although if it's a computer, someone somewhere will find a way to hack it. When my son bought a new Mac Pro he gave me his three year old Mac. Because I'm a bit paranoid about the internet I thought it would be a good idea to protect it. Luckily this was available to test so I thought I'd give it a go, despite having read some pretty negative reviews in the run up to ordering it. I'm not a geek so I can't comment overly about it from that side of things. It installed easily enough, no problem there. But then I began to get the same problems everyone else has complained about. These included slow performance, not recognising my printer, problems opening programmes and scans taking forever to complete. In terms of ease of use it was OK. In terms of the effect it had on my Mac's performance was not so good. You can custtom install it to run at a time when you aren't using your computer, however, when I did this as an overnight scan it was still running in the morning. You do need security for your Mac, however I'm not sure that the disadvantages outweigh the benefits with this programme.
