McAfee VirusScan Plus FREE @ HSBC (usually £31.99)

Found 6th Jan 2011
McAfee VirusScan Plus, 12 Month Subscription for FREE for HSBC customers with online banking.

After logging into online banking there is a link towards the bottom which says "Free McAfee® Security download" click on it and follow the links for the free anti virus.

I previously posted the link but it looks like it expires after a which and the code at the end changes when I click on it again.

Suppose you will probably know someone with HSBC online banking who can send you link.

I signed up for me and my girlfriend with same link so it looks like it can be used multiple times.

Normal selling price direct from McAfee is £31.99

Can't really complain that is free!

I have updated the info on this deal.

sorry but it looks like direct link expires after a certain amount of time or after a certain number of clicks.

you will have to log into HSBC online banking for link to work.

Still getting an error message :-(

wouldnt use it myself even for free..

alot better options out there even without spending money..

About a year ago they updated their virus files and it deleted windows files thinking they were a virus.

Estimated 1-2 million users major had problems - including me!.

After an expensive and stressful fortnight trying to get rid of a nasty that got past McAfee a couple of years ago I wouldn't touch it, free or not. Watching the McAfee "experts" take control of my computer and google for the free trojan removal software (personal use only!) was educational.

I have used McAfee for years backed up by spybot search and destroy or malwarebytes never had a problem

link not working

I'm with HSBC and installed this. Terrible anti-virus software. Slow and doesn't detect many worms.

Uninstalled and went with free ones. Much better

I logged into internet banking with HSBC and it worked fine for me. Expiry 07/01/2011. Saved myself £30
