Windows 7: McAfee Update (8/9/10) causes win 7 Problems

That's good to know, but still kind of hard to tell if it's products really have improved or if computers have just gotten so much faster that the system load with norton installed is just a manageable percentage.. I'll remain skeptical, but I no longer recommend people get rid of norton, especially if they're happy with it

It's still not the lightest but if you monitor Norton 2011 Beta's CPU and I/O usage, you'd think it weren't doing anything.

I am using NIS 2011 beta and it seems stable. I have seen betas out there that are so unstable it's practically impossible to look at them.

I think I could... but what I'm picturing probably isn't appropriate for a public forum

I think if you found a Mc A(pius failure) fee beta and decided to install it any other present protections would alert you to an I-Worm! "phony av program detected .. alert! alert!"

As for removal tools provided by various companies to followup on any problems seen when going to uninstall a program those are mainly geared to clean up any leftovers in the system registry. Any folders remaining can then be manually removed if still present afterwards.

Any software company that deals with corporate sales will be to have one available. For Mcrud Asure2fail fee the best idea is never to install that one in the first place! 11yrs. later and they still haven't made any improvements!

I've always wondered something...since McAfee's home products don't work, I wonder if their corporate products work? On the website, they say that their endpoint security has strong protection leveraged with other technology. Does it? Does anyone know? I haven't ran into anyone yet who has asked me what they recommend they get for their business as computer protection. I would probably tell them to get Symantec's Endpoint security but I was quite curious on what McAfee's corporate products were like...

We have McAfail enterprise edition on the computers at school. We also have a policy saying that all computers must have an AV installed to connect to the schools network (software has to be installed to check). It definitely slows the computers down, and some of them failed to update once. The IT people still can't get them to reconnect to the internet. Based on that, my opinion isn't high.
