Hi all
as I keep saying "Ad Nauseam" -- just JUNK all this other AV B/S. Some of the guys in India or Singapore will HATE me for saying this since this is their job -- however MSE really does work better than a lot of the other stuff and to those guys in India -- how does it feel to be on the REVERSE end of "Off shoring" for a change.

"What comes around --- Goes around".

Cheers

A discount on Mc Afffffe means you got virus at a cheaper price. That don't work for me.

Am not understanding what your getting at. Mcafee is being sold at a discount price for being a student. IE9 is messing it up and am looking for a fix without reverting back to IE8.

It isn't IE9 that is messing McAfee up, it is the fact that from the looks of things McAfee hasn't started to make their program compatible with IE9.

And the fix is to either revert to IE8 until such a time as McAfee decides to fix it, or bite the bullet and ditch McAfee for something else.

That's fine, but you might want to run an on demand scanner like Malwarebytes Anti-Malware every so often just to get another opinion on McAfee's detection rate. Another nifty on demand scanner is Hitman Pro 3.5 which is a second opinion Cloud Scanner which only takes a few seconds to scan and is amazingly accurate.

I've had McAfee along with various issues....ALL BAD The list is too long but let me narrow it down to the general highlights:

McAfee missing several worms/Viruses on my FD, telling me "all is good" while MSE detects them and removes them. (These viruses originated from the college I attend, guess what they run for an AV? To date, they can't get rid of these annoyances, 3 semesters now)

McAfee hosing itself along with several of my system files when it did a "Security Center Update". It hosed itself so badly that doing a restore 2 days back before the incident couldn't save it.

McAfee not being satisfied with hosing XP & Win 7 machines and setting their sites on Vista. I spent a weekend assisting 3 people running Vista getting McAfee out of their system. This time their "update" wouldn't allow any access to the net and hosed it's own files in pretty much the same manner as it did on mine.

As far as I'm concerned, it's a useless piece of software.
