Even the company founder uninstalls it from his new computers lol
Most people can get free internet security from their bank or ISP or Microsoft.

I'm not voting either way on this one. The price is a good saving off the normal price. However the product is about as useful as a chocolate teapot at the height of summer!

Time was that Matfen was the AV product to have, but that was a decade ago. They have been going downhill ever since.

You are better off with free AV protection from Avast or Avira. Free malware protection from the likes of Malwarebytes and free system tools like CCleaner. Or a paid for product like Avast Internet Security package, or the excellent Bull guard (which is currently available direct at 50% off).

So, for those who (for whatever misguided reason they have) want to buy McAfee, it is a good deal. But for those that want actual protection that is worth having, this is not a purchase you should make.

Microsoft security essentials is absolutely fine. It's free and unobtrusive. You'd have to visit some very dodgy sites to ever need anything else ;)

Free AV = legal spying

Be warned it wont be long before the adds recommendations on google play/emails come through . creapy if you got any awareness whats going on .

Anyway why do you think big AV companies give it out for free ?
Becase your private information gets sold on to anybody who will pay including scammers !

not the best av but for a tenner ?

Why your votes are based on product quality not the actual deal ? It's cheaper than anywhere else and it's a good deal.
Good find macobrum. HOT
PS
Good luck with your free protection from Microsoft.

Many people wouldn't touch McAfee products with a 10ft pole, even if they were completely free, so even at 10 quid it would still be considered overpriced.

If you are specifically looking for this it might represent a good deal, if you are looking for a good security package, it definitely doesn't represent a good deal. That is my opinion of course. ;)

If you want something decent, get one of the Bitdefender freebies for 6 months constantly doing the rounds. Or would Crusader777 say because it's free it's spying on you...??? oO

free protection from Microsoft for 6 years and never had a virus with quarterly scans with malware bytes. as long as you use your common sense you will never need a paid for antivirus. I find people with these end up with more viruses than people without them

You clearly have no awareness of what is going on then. The free AV companies all provide paid products and in general enterprise level products as well. These are not outfits like Zynga that harvest information to sell - they are privacy and security companies. How long do you think a security company would be in business if it was acting like you think they do?

Free AV protection products are an exercise in distributed product research. People who use free AV products enable the company to expand the number of users they have and thus increase the chances of discovering new 'in the wild' viruses. This investment is an expense that pays dividends as it enables these security companies to get on top of new viruses much quicker that they possibly could with a much smaller subscriber only customer base.

In addition, the increased user base is a very powerful facility when it comes to selling enterprise level security, where products are stringently fail tested by clients. The increased user base means that any bugs in the product are more likely to be rooted out before updates are issued to corporate clients.

Free AV is not a cost to security companies - it is an asset, and a very important one at that. You are confusing the kind of things that Facebook, Google, Zynga and so forth do with an area of software development that does not need to incorporate such practices. Next you'll be claiming that open source providers and OSes are doing the same thing to be able to offer their products with no payment in many cases.

You need to get a better understanding of the economies involved in different areas of software development, and stop letting the truth of what some companies do flow into paranoia about all companies. And you should be less worried about what data companies sell to each other for marketing purposes and more worried about what data your government has and what it does with it.

I stopped using McAfee when it started using up to 50% of system resources. Anti-virus programs like this, and Norton, all overreached, acting as though they were the very purpose for owning a computer. Instead of being an invisible ninja protecting you from the shadows, they became big fat drama queens wanting your attention every five minutes. Now these programs can be obtained for free, usually bundled with a piece of hardware, and even then nobody installs it.

Not voting because this is likely a good deal in terms of this price versus normal price.

I've used NOD32 for many, many years; a very nice, lightweight anti-virus. MS security essentials also does the business.

Also good post from dlee. After the Snowden revelations, a piece of software collecting stats on which porn sites you visit should be the least of your concerns.

Personally I don't think Norton or McAffee are much better than malware. NOD32 or MSSE all the way.
