Amazon.com Review

McAfee Internet Security 5.0 protects your PC against a wide range of viruses and other external threats, such as hacker attempts. McAfee Internet Security 5.0 combines McAfee's VirusScan 7.0 and Firewall 4.0 in one product along with a new interface, allowing you to configure everything from one location.

On the virus front, McAfee Internet Security 5.0 operates on many levels. The new Hostile Activity Watch Kernel (HAWK) constantly monitors your PC for viruslike activity and integrates well with many e-mail clients. VShield runs constantly in the background, checking files as you open them. Even if you choose to disable VShield, the program still protects Microsoft Office files by scanning them before you open them. It also protects against invisible and malicious e-mail scripts by looking for suspicious behavior such as trying to open, write, or delete files. Any suspect activity is immediately stopped.

Of course, any antivirus product is only as good as its ability to stop viruses from infecting your system. Happily, McAfee Internet Security 5.0 has been given a 100% rating by Virus Bulletin, so long as you keep it up-to-date. Like the other products in McAfee's security lineup, McAfee Internet Security 5.0 uses Instant Updater, which constantly checks for product updates and automatically downloads them when you are online.

The firewall function in McAfee Internet Security 5.0 controls which of your applications can access the Internet, and stops them from divulging your personal information without your knowledge. It also stops hackers from accessing your PC remotely.

The firewall recognizes most common programs and automatically creates rules to allow them to communicate with the Internet. Users can create their own rules, but this can be tricky for the novice as some of the warning dialog boxes tend toward jargon-filled prose.

McAfee Internet Security 5.0 works with Windows Internet Connection Sharing, and has also been enhanced for broadband so home networks are fully supported. Also new in this release is an intrusion-detection system that blocks port scanners.

Of course, the most important aspect is how well it actually works, and the firewall passes all the usual tests with flying colors. It happily deals with all the usual intrusion techniques, and the auto update feature ensures the product is able to cope with any new threats as they appear.

We did have some difficulty getting an e-mail program called Ameol to work with McAfee Internet Security 5.0, but all other programs we tried worked fine.

Novice users may struggle to get the most from the firewall in McAfee Internet Security 5.0, but the more experienced will find a powerful firewall and antivirus program that can be used with confidence. --Iain Laskey, Amazon.co.uk ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Stick with Norton
I bought this after my 90 day free trial to Virus Scan and Firewall ended from Dell. I figured it also included the Privacy Service, but shouldn't be that much different than it's component programs. WRONG! It has been an absolute nightmare for the past 2 weeks. Every time you try to go to a website (Yahoo as the most notable example), it keeps popping up windows saying Yahoo is placing a direct cookie on your system, do you wish to allow? Even after selecting to allow direct cookies from the site, and that I recognize the site and not to ask again, I continue to get at least 7-12 more pop-ups asking the exact same question for the site! This happens for most retail sites as well. (Just trying to get to the product page here on Amazon has been a nightmare!) It has also twice since installation said that the Virus Scan files were corrupt and had to be reinstalled, which would not work automatically from the setup program. This program is much more trouble than it is worth. Stick with Norton AntiVirus!

1-0 out of 5 stars Firewall had leaks-finds viruses after they infect PC.
Whenever I install a new, untested firewall I got to the Shields Up! website to test for vulnerabilities and open ports:

https://grc.com/x/ne.dll?bh0bkyd2

I also do this on a monthly basis as a security measure for my PC. When testing this product AFTER configuring the firewall for maximum security and ensuring I had no applications using any open ports, McAfee had 3 PORTS that were shown as OPEN when tested by Shields Up!, not as stealthed, not as even closed. According to the Shields Up! website, the firewall at the very least should have notiifed me of open port(s). It didn't. Also, I setup the antirvirus for real-time protection and automatic updating. Yet, whenever I did a weekly virus scan, it found new viruses. These viruses were not discovered AS they were introduced to my system, only after the fact in a routine scan, during which time they could have attached themselves to emails or damaged important files. I have since installed a FREE firewall, now all of my ports are now fully stealthed. Another antivirus program found TWO undiscovered viruses after I uninstalled McAfee. I went to the store and got my money back.

5-0 out of 5 stars Is Norton starting a bad-publicity Campaign?
Ok, Norton must be hiring a lot of people to come on here and trash McAfee Products. I've used this program for... what is it now... somewhere around a year I think. I've never had any problems with it. I hear people complaining about not being able to connect to the net or shared files. Most likely because something is configured wrong. But as far as I see. McAfee rocks.

1-0 out of 5 stars The WORST piece of software I have ever encountered
I can't say enough bad things about my experience with this software. (If you decide to try it be sure to backup your system before starting - you'll need it.) The installation software will probably crash, leaving you in a half-installed limbo. You will be able to get the software installed but this is only the beginning of your problems. You will not be able to receive email without manually fixing a conflict between the Privacy Service and Virus Scan components. You will have to disable the popup blocker if you want to follow links in email from some popular mailing lists like ZDNet. Compuserve now greets me with six error messages before completing login. Everything is slower with ISS 6.0 - either get used to it or be prepared to disable much of the functionality you paid for. Finally, you won't be able to play Microsoft Solitaire without killing a process or two. Good luck trying to uninstall the software; there doesn't seem to be either a program or instructions to help you do it. You can call them for $2.95 a minute, but given the number of problems you're likely to have you will be paying a fortune only to end up (at best) with a substandard product and vague promises of fixes. I suspect that customer support is the true source of their profit on this product. AVOID THIS PRODUCT!

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't go near this product
If you want Xp to crash with a blue screen of death when someone sends you a file across the LAN and to have emails with attachments bigger than 50k fail and to spend all day setting options that the program doesn't remember then go ahead .... waste your money!

Oh and uninstalling is very easy if you are good at editing the registry manually

Never again will I tread the mcafee path ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

McAfee Firewall software builds a protective barrier around your computer to secure and defend it from Internet hazards, such as hackers trying to steal private information. It filters both inbound and outbound communications between your computer and the outside world. The firewall offers several options for logging and tracking, depending upon how detailed your needs are. You can log all connections and connection attempts in the log file and review it later for security and auditing purposes. It protects both dial-up and direct Internet connections, such as DSL or cable modem. This ensures that no matter how you're connected to the Internet, your system remains secure. McAfee Firewall technology offers versatility without undermining security.

McAfee VirusScan technology detects destructive ActiveX and Java applets, which are often downloaded without your knowledge while you're browsing. The VirusScan's e-mail x-ray feature catches viruses in Internet mail even before new messages have been opened. It supports cc:Mail, Eudora, Microsoft Exchange, and Outlook. You can safely and easily isolate infected and suspicious files in a protected area on your computer. By quarantining an infected file you can take the time to repair it without worrying about spreading the infection to other files on your system or e-mailing it to friends, family, and coworkers. You can even submit a suspicious file to McAfee AVERT Labs for testing and personalized diagnosis. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars MacAfee Viruscan
I installed the software into my Desktop as part of customer benefits. Innitially I activated it weekly to the soothing sound of the programme in use. Then on busy days I lef it on Automatically. The programme never let me down. Now with the firerwall will mean extra loaded protection and screaning of internet safe information in transit. Try it I swear. You'll trust it forever.

I cant stop wishing I never had to use other virusscan products. I absolutely love MacAfee Viruscan now wit firewall.

1-0 out of 5 stars Buyer beware!
My wife bought this program because she wanted to protect our computer from Hacker attacks since we added a cable modem, which, along with its high-speed access, has an "always on" two-way link to the Internet that makes our computer vulnerable to such attacks. And on that front, it appears to have done its job. At least, we don't seem to have had any hacker attacks. But that's where the benefits end and the nightmares begin. You see, my wife also wanted to access her office Outlook e-mail from home, and it would not work on our computer. Her Techie at work told her it was probably the Firewall, and said she should turn it off. Turning off all filtering did not do the trick, so we tried to uninstall the application. No dice. The incorrectly named "Help" file said there should be a file labeled "uninstall CPD" in the program folder. No such file could be found. Their online support said their should be an uninstall Firewall option under the start menu, but it was not there. On top of that, the Help file warned that we should not use Windows' Remove Programs feature to uninstall because it could damage our system! Ultimately what we have then is a program that was designed to protect our system that has instead gummed up the works, and prevented our computer from doing something very basic and important, like reading office email at home! What's worse, because there is no uninstall function, and remove programs doesn't work (I ultimately tried it, fingers crossed), I feel like my computer has been taken hostage by McAfee! On top of all that, their customer service is a joke. In addition to the laughable help file, their web page is extremely confusing (just try and find the answer to my uninstall program problem, or even how to email Tech support!) AND you have to pay a fee for phone support, EVEN THOUGH IT'S THEIR OWN PRODUCT's FAULT!!

As you can see, I am frustrated. The irony in all of this is that McAfee sells another program called McAfee Uninstaller. I laughed a gloomy laugh when I saw that on their web site. Could it be that this program is designed to FORCE you to buy their other program to get rid of it?

Who knows, maybe tech support will finally get back to me with a solution, or maybe I will have reinstalled Windows by then, I don't know.

Bottom line: AVOID THIS PRODUCT.

2-0 out of 5 stars lacking
this program did not have the full converago of my computer safe. The firewall would always pop onto my screen when i went to a new set of web sites, so that meant that I was always pressing the X button on that program. I also upgraded my computer which meant that McCafee was never loaded back on because I didn't want to have to deal with the program again. I would prefer Norton System works over McCafee any day and that is what I now have back on my computer and I am very satisfied with its performance.

1-0 out of 5 stars Very, very, disappointed
I am very disappointed in this software. When I install it on my computer, it corrupts my Explorer files. In order to access the Internet, I have to uninstall Ad-Free and reinstall Explorer. Therefore, this software is worthless! I can not get a hold of the company for help. I have sent emails through the website and get no response. Their phone number is an endless cycle of voice mail commands. Since the software is opened, I can't return it for a refund. ...

Amazon.com Review

If you are concerned about virus protection and keeping your personal data private, consider Norton Internet Security 2002 Professional Edition. This version is appropriate for home, home office, and corporate users, and offers a number of slick features to keep you and your data protected.

The package contains four key components: managed settings, productivity control, a personal firewall, and virus protection for both desktop and handheld computers. Our main interest was in the firewall security. We found that the default settings were a good middle-of-the-road approach, although your usage may vary. Accordingly, you can customize your firewall preferences to increase your security level (three grades, from minimal protection to block all until you give permission). You can also manage the applications allowed to access the Internet and how, as well as limit the use of Java applets and ActiveX controls that are prevalent on the Web today. Automatic Internet Access Control works in tandem with these options, maintaining a list of programs that are recognized safe applications (such as Netscape, Microsoft Outlook, or instant messaging software).

The firewall also protects you from port scans, in which attackers scan the ports of your computer to see what they might be able to find. Following such an attack, the AutoBlock feature will stop all inbound communication from this attacker for a half-hour. Norton Internet Security does have a flaw in this area: some users (including us) experience a complete or partial blocking of Internet access due of AutoBlock. Norton is aware of this potential and provides a handy document to troubleshoot this problem. (Our problem was resolved after rebooting our computer a second time after install.)

Other features that make this package shine include Productivity Control and the administrative settings and capabilities. If you are in charge of several computers, you'll be able to manage and monitor your group's usage of the Internet. With Productivity Control enabled, any incoming information from restricted Web sites or outgoing information from Internet applications can be blocked. The settings are linked to user accounts, allowing protection while that user is logged on. The list of blocked Web sites is managed directly by Symantec, so you won't even have to think about it (although you can block additional sites or allow for exceptions, and customize it to the application or by topic).

Bringing all of the package's resources together is Security Assistant, available only to administrators. From here, administrators can change any aspect or preference of Norton Internet Security, including Internet "zone control," intrusion-detection options, and productivity controls. Our favorite feature of the entire package is also managed here: Ad Blocking. Norton Internet Security can scan for ads and remove them from Web pages, speeding up download times and helping you maintain your sanity while surfing. And if Norton Internet Security misses an ad, simply drag the ad to the trash can icon and the ad will be remembered, and will never appear in your browser again.

Overall, the Norton Internet Security package is a good all-in-one solution to potential Internet woes. --Emilie Herbst ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Secure yes, but usability is very poor
I used NIS2002 for about 4 months as a software firewall for my cable connection until I got a Wireless LAN and had a hardware firewall/router in place.

For security - it gets good marks. It did its job despite my ISP's inability to stop all sorts of Trojan and DDOS attacks - which is a real problem in a cable network's shared segments. Configuration was pretty easy with their wizards, although the admin runs slow on my P3-700 w/256MB RAM. It often would take 10-12 seconds to load the menu screen.

But that just begins the problems with the product: The pop-up alerts for "training" the product do not provide the type of granularity needed for a firewall. While you can configure it manually, the only option you get on the pop-up is either allow this packet, allow this application forever or forever block - and it is per application, not per IP address, unless you run the customization wizard each time, which takes you through about 5 steps to simply "trust" an IP/port. Tiny and ZoneAlarm allow you to do this with just one mouse click. Imagine if you run a local web server of file or printer share at home and want to restrict access to only the internal network or perhaps a few Internet IPs of friends, or your office. It will be a big job with NIS and I suspect that non-technical users would either do it wrong and leave unwanted holes or give up trying because after you get out of the standard wizards that NIS provides, you are pretty much on your own.

Reporting is also poor and almost impossible to find in the product. It isn't on any menu choices. Again, Tiny and ZoneAlarm are far better. Reporting is important because you often want to see what activity is happening that the firewall is catching for you or, more importantly, what is getting blocked that you want to give access for.

Most egregious however, is that when I tried to remove NIS after installing my hardware router/firewall, my XP Pro started freezing almost anytime it had to access the internet. There were many registry keys, including low-level driver left behind. MSCONFIG also confirmed this. I had run the special rnis.exe that Symantec provides, but this didn't work either. Because of my experience, I was able, after much difficulty, to stabilize the system, BUT, this is unacceptable in any product, even a firewall and is so huge IMO, that although I would give the overall product a 3, it earns only 1 STAR because of its poor behavior. Understand, that I never had this happen with XP before the uninstall.

I had used Tiny Software's Personal Firewall until I upgraded to XP and would have had to pay for their upgrade. Since I had Symantec's Norton Utilities, I figured to just buy the whole Norton suite. Tiny's admin was fast and easy to use comparatively and I really wish I had stuck with them. My limited experience with ZoneAlarm, combined with positive reviews from friends and magazines would lead me to recommend it before NIS as well. Overall Norton NIS2002 did the job, but wasn't worth the steep hassle factor.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not recommended for professionals running NT
I have used the Family edition of Norton Internet Security at home for two years.I have been very happy with the Family edition.

Symantec misleads end users when they advertise that Norton Internet Security 2002 Professional edition (NIS Pro) provides a "User Access Manager (that) lets you set different Internet access privileges from a single workstation for members of your workgroup also running Norton Internet Security Professional Edition software on their PCs."Reading that, I thought I could set up Internet access privileges for everyone in the office from one workstation.Not so!Instead, the manual tells you to configure one workstation, export the settings to a file and then import the file to the other workstations.After spending a fair amount of time configuring the "Master" machine, NIS Pro would not export the settings and neither their manual nor their website offered anything helpful on the subject.After almost three hours on Symantec's paid telephone support line (no free installation support is available), their experts could not help export the settings to the other workstations.Now I need to configure another workstation manually (and perhaps eight more if the "User Access Manager" fails again).This will take many hours.

Furthermore, since NT server installation is not supported, my network consultant tells me the installation of NIS Pro's firewall module on the workstations but not the server is seriously flawed.It's like closing the windows but leaving the front door wide open!

I don't recommend this product for professionals with NT servers.I also don't recommend it to anyone hoping to take advantage of a helpful "User Access Manager".

4-0 out of 5 stars A breeze to install on XP
It certainly provides all the details for this interested, it's default settings are what I went with for most things. I feel much more educated and know that my system is better protected w/ this software.

5-0 out of 5 stars Don't Mess Around....This is Serious
So you go out and spend between 700 and 3,000 bucks on a brand new computer. You load it up, attach your cable modem, and your on the net surfing around. However, there happen to be alot of bored people out there who want to hack into your computer, steal information (such as credit card numbers, your financial info from say Quicken) or just plain want to destroy your investment. You don't buy a new house and leave the doors unlocked all the time with no alarm system do you?? NO!
That said...

Don't mess around, plain and simple. Your Computers Security is an important issue. The thing is its EASY to protect yourself.Nortons programs are the best there are, read the reviews in all sorts of PC magazines. They know what theyre doing.

I HIGHLY recommend the Norton Internet Security PRO Edition. This thing comes with EVERYTHING you can think of in Internet Security. There is no more loaded program. You can FULLY customize it, shutting down features that you see people complaining about on here. Yeah, you have to know SOMETHING about computers, but if you don't its not brain surgery either. There are plenty of help menus that explain each and EVERY function. You get a 2002 Virus Scan, Firewall, and an ADDED firewall in a sense, the threat detection. This is great, because if a computer tries to break into yours, it shuts ANY contact down with that computer for 30 minutes, or it can permanetly shut it down, your in control. It also alerts you when someone is "port searching", where hackers use programs to find vulnerable computers. You also get a year of automatic updates, so its NEVER outdated, and its always able to protect you agaisnt new threats. You can update it every day if you want to (although thats extreme haha!)

Bottom line is this...I had Nortons 2001 Firewall, and it stopped 3 hackers from attacking me with trojan horse viruses (ones that stealinformation). I was so pleased with it, I went and ordered the Internet Security PRO, because Norton proved to me they are serious. Prove to yourself and your family that your serious about security, and order the Pro. If you wanna save money, grab the regular edition, its still a great program.

Good luck and take care.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Program
The features of this make the price worthwhile; one improvement for a product in this price range would be a spam eliminator. This program is intuitive, accessible, and provides valuable information- including attack attempts. Cookie blocking in an extensive (and controllable) way to protect some information; this program protects private information- names, e mail address, credit card information, address and telephone, any other information you enter can be blocked from communication and access; permits effective and thorough blocking of inappropriate sites for parental protection and control; includes firewall and anti-virus (Norton's Anti Virus can be used separately, and which can pay for itself quite quickly by isolating and destroying viruses before they get into a computer hard drive- awesome program). There is also, in Internet Security, an ad block feature that turns off most all advertising (graphics tend to be blank). A stellar feature of this whole program is that your browsing information is private. Norton's Internet Security works flawlessly with Windows Xp [in my experience]. It's a task in itself to keep up with security requirements, and Norton's makes it easier with this program. Highly recommended. Also recommended: Webroot's Window Washer and Spy Sweeper. There are many ways to increase computer security; one program doesn't accomplish it all. A firewall should be on all computers; Norton Internet Security is an excellent program to begin with. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars watch out
ive had this program for a while now. at first i thought it was just wonderful, it blocked all needed sites and such but then i realized it was blocking sites that i new were acceptable in my mind for example a friends site had a picture of me (a really bad one when i just woke up) and it sarcasticially said "oh sexy ;)" and SOS kidproof would not let me on to this site becuase of that reason. i understood that and figured i would just delete it untill it didnt recognize my password and i knew that was the right password! i tried many other ways to delete it and it wouldnt work! i even got my brother in,to try , whos an expert in computers and he couldnt do it either! i tried many ways and times to contact their company but was unsuccessful. i now have to live with my computer not letting me onto half the sites i wish to go on and boy is it frustrating.

This program locked up 2 of my computers. It would not recognize my pass word. I have spend 3 days trying to get in touch with the company that produced it and have been unable to do so yet. It seems as though they are out of busness. I have tried e-mail,web sites,phone. I am now trying to get it off my computer.

1-0 out of 5 stars Buyer Beware
SOS KidProof 1.5 appears to be a very good product, according to the description of its capabilities and attributes on the package. And it does appear to do what it claims it will do. But, BUYER BEWARE! After installing it, I ran into significant problems. I am unable to access the control center, customize settings for different users, or any of the other things that made the product attractive to me. However, the most significant problem, and the one all prospective purchasers should be very leary of, is there appears to be no customer or technical support. In fact, I have to wonder if the company is still in business! I have attempted to contact them by phone, using the number printed on the package and on several pieces inside the package. That number is disconnected. I've tried to find a working number via Directory Assistance, but the number they have is also not in service. Finally, I've tried e-mailing their technical support center for help. My message could not be delivered. I received the following explanatory message from my e-mail service "Unable to deliver message to the following recipients ..due to being unable to connect successfully to the destination mail server."

Based on my experience, I'd suggest that purchasers be very, very careful installing the product because if something goes awry, you're on your own.

1-0 out of 5 stars Waste of time and money
Although it was extremely fast and easy to install, it was all downhill after that. All letters and numbers entered for my password and registration number at installation were turned into jibberish upon rebooting my PC to start the program. I couldn't access ANYTHING on the program, any of the help features on Enova's website, or any other web sites. As for the Telephone Support phone number, no one answered the phone and no one returned phone calls left on their voice mail, and no response was received from my e-mail. After digging around in my PC for about two hours, I found a back way to uninstall. What a nightmare!!!

The other reviewer is right. Do not buy this. I happen to have version 1.65 and it may be even worse. I'm also in the IT business and I've not seen many products worse than this.

My administrator password keeps resetting itself and you have to call them to get a temporary password. Of course, they almost never answer their phones.

I had to uninstall it using regedit which I'm comfortable with but most home users would not want to go through that ordeal.

I'd give it zero stars if I could. ... Read more
