Hot from me tho expect lots and lots of posts about free AV etc......
#3
Just use avg or similar they are free, I am still being spammed from mcafee three years after deciding not to renew their licence, It is a nightmare to get rid of the nag screens as well

Use ccleaner to remove any McAfee remnants, that will blitz it as well as clean up your registry etc. excellent (free) product
(download from e.g filehippo.com)

last time I bought one of these from ebuyer - it was just the media with 12 months license only if you had never been registered before. (no license number was included)

So may be worth checking if you already have been registered.

I hate McAfee ! AVG is tops and it is free. McAfee slowed my computer down something terrible when I first had it.

As an I.t. support engineer I get loads of pc's and laptops riddled with viruses that have avg FREE installed.

Totally agree.

I still dont understand why people keep raving about AVG when its now known that it doesnt find a lot of the more recent viruses. Lots of people on HUKD recently said once they put Kaspersky etc on their PC, then it found lots of viruses sitting there for months which AVG happily ignored.


AVOID AVG!

Stick with Avast / Avira for free or kaspersky if you bank with barclays (free).

Not a bad price, but it's still awful awful software.

Independent tests: http://www.av-comparatives.org/ consistently rank AVG above McAfee :whistling:.

Although you are correct in your implication that there are much better AV's than AVG around.

No McAfee product comes with a serial key/code or anything similar. Everything is tied to your email address that you register with. This normally isn't a problem, if you renew online it's not a problem, or if buy 2008 then 2009 etc... it normally knows the difference and registers the new copy you bought in your McAfee account to give you another year. If not, they supply a removal tool to get rid of your registration data which then allows you to register with another email address to get your one year of updates.

Good price, even though the total including shipping is £8.56

Right, so you want to use the free AVG which has been known to disable Flash player, oh, and the great occasion it also quarantined a critical Windows file, preventing peoples machines from booting....

http://www.techspot.com/news/32480-avg-identifies-adobe-flash-as-malicious.html

It's done other silly things in the past, but, I'm sure these very recent (November 2008!) examples will illustrate my point :)

If you want to stop the emails, simply unsubscribe to them - the link is included in every email they send or you can do so here:
http://uk.mcafee.com/email/unsub.asp

Alternatively perhaps you should invest in some decent anti-spam software - McAfee Internet Security 2009 package should do the job nicely :p

If you don't want to be disturbed by the nag screens, either re-new the product or remove it.
#15
Good price, but I thought it might be worth mentioning that if you're an HSBC customer you can get a 1 year mcafee licence free http://www.hsbc.co.uk/1/2/security/antivirus-software
#16
Surprised no-one ever mentions free comodo internet security suite
http://www.personalfirewall.comodo.com/


Has a fantastic firewall, really noticed the difference when i switched from Mcafee. My torrent software connects much faster with other peers now, and my pc is much more responsive. Cant comment on how good the anti-virus is though, i use Avira Pro for that.

Comodo does require some configuration for personal needs though, so may not be ideal for the complete noob. Use the comodo forums for help with configuration.

Still a good 'deal' o the mcafee if you really want Mcafee. Voted hot
#17
Worst thing about Mc Afee is it slows your computer down to a crawl. Try downloading Avast free version it's much better than this.
#18
It's a load of old ******* that Mcafee slows down your PC unless you are still running on a P3 with 256MB ram. All you need to do is go in to the advanced tabs and configure it correctly.

My tip is if you use Mcafee stick to the firewall and antivirus and decline to install all the other stuff that comes with the security suite as this is where all the bloat comes from and that is why there are so many processes running.

With my configuration and just the firewall and antivrus installed there are only a few processes running using minimal resources. I have never had a virus get past or that it couldn't remove in the 5 years i have been using it.

AVG is a joke, just cuz its free. . . numerous times i have friends asking me take a look at their pc because something has got through, voted hot.
#20
Strangely enough, I've never had a problem with AVG.

Maybe I just don't purposely download trojans?
#21
I wouldn't recommend this if it was free. They'd have to pay me money to run it.

Avast
Superantispyware
PCTools Firewall Plus with Threatfire
Winpatroll.

All you need. Cold!

If the dude manages to get viruses on a regular basis the problem is not the software but his complete lack of common sense. Educate them on not opening random attachments and such like or install Linux for them. :thumbsup:
#23
I repair computers and from my experience the most important piece of security software on your pc are not just an antivirus like Avira AntiVir, its also the firewall.. see below for my recommendations...

Free security software:

Firewall: Comodo Firewall OR Online Armor
Antivirus: Avira AntiVir or a-squared
Ant-spyware: Ad-Aware 8 or Spyware Doctor Starter Edition

Best Buys (includes firewall, antivirus, antispyware plus extras):

Norton Internet Security 2009 £14.94 (OEM)
http://www.kikatek.com/product_info.php?products_id=83872&source=froogle

OR Kaspersky Internet Security 2009 £13.79 (OEM)

:thumbsup: Exactly what I've done as well. Any software will suck if you don't configure it correctly.

Nortons worse than Mcafee for bloat and slow computer syndrome.

Have you tried the 2009 version of norton?

It is the least bloated of all suites... they have finally focused on the pc slowdown it used to cause and now its the fastest of all... check out this review below and skip to the performance test and you will see...

I would use Kaspersky even if I had to payf or it. (I don't because I bank with Warclays)
It blocks banner ads on websites.
It found malware that Norton missed.
It found problems with a driver writing to other programs memory.
Its not a memory or resurce hog. (Unlike Norton which was a real pig, I'd never use Norton again even if you paid me!)
#28
what is better Avast or Avira AntiVir?
#29
I can get virus software called "Sophos" free thru my work (scottish and southern energy) is this SOPHOS any good?
#30
again mcafee detection rate is ****, avira is the best free antivirus out there, say bye bye to malware with avira.
for paid antivirus use avira premium, kaspersly or eset.
banned#31
Ive heard many things about kapersky. Does anyone know if i got a 3 user licence of it, if i could run it on one system for 3 years?
#32
Why do people keep comparing this with AVG? McAfee Internet Security 2009 does a whole lot more. It includes Web Site Safety Ratings, Anti-phishing, Identity Protection, anti-spam, Parental Controls etc.
#33
My recommendations, as another computer engineer :geek:

The best paid for all round performer is norton internet security 2009,
no pc slowdown, no constant user input required, best value is the three pc licences pack click £21.01

If you insist on free products then AVAST antivirus with COMODO firewall, is not a bad combination.
As others have said AVG free fails to detect some bad stuff :shock:

But you do get what you pay for, and if you use online banking, pay for online shopping with credit cards etc, it's not a bad idea to pay for good protection. :thumbsup:
Norton is better than McAfee

Avira AntiVir is much better and matches anything norton or kaspersky can come up with, and its FREE (but it doesn't detect spyware! which most ppl dnt even know!) :roll:

thats made for businesses because it notifys you of any changes to the computer, even if it may be legitimate, this means it will come up with many 'false positives'... but also means its very good at detecting viruses/spyware...etc :?
#37
avg is great if your a fan of false positives
#38
Worth mentioning that ebay is a good cheap source of Kaspersky licenses.

I dont use avira because of the nagware/adware that comes with it and pops up after every update which you have to edit the registry to get rid of.
