MCAFEE IS A TOTAL RIP OFF!!! I bought a new Acer notebook, a Travel Mate. When I plugged it in and turned it on, Mcafee was already installed (I presume as a free trial, but I never was able to find out). I set up my McAfee "site advisor" when prompted by the computer, and decided that I would try McAfee for the free period and see if it was worth the money. Soon after that, the "site advisor" would pop up anywhere from 3-6 times each time I tried to access a website, requiring me to enter my password in order to view the site. If I clicked another link of that webpage, "site advisor" would pop up again, 3-6 times. It was maddening. I tried to access my settings in McAfee, and was able to change my settings to a lower security level on the control panel, but when I exited out I got a box saying McAfee was "unable to save" the new settings. Then, I decided to just uninstall McAfee and put in the security suite which is free with my ISP. Guess what? It wouldn't uninstall!!. Then, I called the number on the McAfee help screen, and was connected immediately to India or Pakistan (never can tell those apart). The CSR told me, after I gave him control of my desktop by downloading a tool, again which I had to enter my "site advisor" password about 20 times, that McAfee was not working properly, and th e reason was that I had "a lot of bad stuff" (his exact words) on my computer, and that he could et rid of the "all that bad stuff" for a small charge of $100.00 for a one time tech support fee, or $200 for 3 years, unlimited visits. I asked him if McAfee was not supposed to allow "all that bad stuff" to get on my computer in the first place, and he said that it was if it was working properly. When I persisted, he asked me if my computer was a "McAfee computer" or a Windows computer, and that the problem was with Windows. I disconnected and hung up on him. I then restored my computer to the day I opened it, and thank the Good Lord, McAfee uninstalled and I was able to download the CA security suite, which works a whole lot better. I say again, MCAFEE IS A TOTAL RIP OFF!!!
