1-0 out of 5 stars Spyless !!
All the bells and whistle's are here but it doesn't detect or remove much of anything just like all the other spyware programs I"ve tried. I think the best software for spyware to come is going to be from McAfee.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Product
This product is the best of the lot. I was blown away at its flash interface and ease of use. Nice work.

4-0 out of 5 stars Performs As Expected
Although I had no SpyWare detected, the product does a quick scan and performs seamlessly without any glitches. The installation is easy for the novice--prompts are clear and easily understood.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not Perfect, But Pretty Good
The software installs fairly easily, and it did remove a number of spyware programs. The on-line technical support is good, although the "helper" got befuddled when he could not solve my problem with recurrent pop-ups. I sent them diagnostic information so their software engineers could evaluate the problem. The software is better than Ad-Aware (which is free from lavasoft.com), but I am not yet convinced it is worth $25 plus shipping. The jury is still out . . .

1-0 out of 5 stars Buggy product, no support, bad move.
I recommend NOT buying this product. Its very crash prone, the company is a shell company based in the Philipines that will refuse to help you.

Bad risk, avoid! ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Avoid this product if you enjoy reading English on your PC !
I just bought this software from Amazon and installed it this past weekend (5/15/04). At first, everything seemed fine. Then, this morning I was cleaning up the recycle bin, which is normally pretty straightforward, right? Well, McAfee prompted me to use it's 'shredder' utility. I thought 'why not?' ... and when the machine rebooted ... I could not read a thing. It apparently changed the system language on my machine. I've never had anything this ridiculous happen before. I've asked Amazon if I can return the software, but no matter what happens ... I will NEVER buy another McAfee product again. What garbage!!! I should've listened to the other reviews here, but I guess I learned the hard way.

5-0 out of 5 stars Works Great - Super buy
I have installed and used 8.0 on two machines for several weeks now. Like all other programs you need to update it online after installation. It is working fine and no problems that some other reviews have shown. The quick clean lite portion works real well in getting old files out.

This box allows the user to put it on 2 seperate machines(...) WoW what a deal.

2-0 out of 5 stars Great Product, Show Stopper Bug!
Been using Mcafee Virusscanners since almost day one of the product. There have been ups and downs with each one, and with v8.0 it is a big "down."

v7.03 was an excellent product. Ran great, no bugs. Got me through the horrors of MyDoom and several other attempted attacks but not one virus could find its way through the scanner.

v8.0 however is a different beast. The interface is actually very nice. At first it seems to be missing many of the features in v7.03 interface, but all of them are really there in one form or another, except the part that tells you how up-to-date (in days) your virus definitions are. I really was enjoying the new interface in v8.0.

...then the Big Bug!
The problem is the show stopping bug. Many users, including myself (on two seperate computers), are reporting to Mcafee through their forum that we can not send out emails with attachments over 500K. The email program timesout and it looks like an email server problem. Yet, it is Virusscan v8.0 that is the problem. Mcafee has confirmed this bug, since Oct 2003, yet they have not issued a patch for it in the past 6 months. They say one is coming in v8.1 but for those of us (and there are many) with the problem, the product becomes pretty much worthless.

I am very disappoint at the response rate in issuing a fix, and I do not recommend v8.0 until I see this "coming" patch. For now I have gone back to v7.03.

Hold off on buying this product until they patch it. If it fixes this issue as promised, I then will grant the product 5-stars.

5-0 out of 5 stars No problems! Works great!
After reading the many negative reviews I was leery to upgrade, to say the least. However, since the product was free after the rebates I decided to give it a chance, particularly since the Norton reviews were even worse. So far, I've had no trouble with the new program, which installed in minutes and appears to work well. I particularly like the automatic updates since I don't have to interrupt my work to download them as I did with VirusScan 7. I was also pleased that the McAfee firewall that came with 7 still works and integrated seamlessly with VirusScan 8 Pro. The uninstall program made no attempt to remove it before installation of 8, which was one of my concerns. While I agree that the Security Center is a shameless sales tool, it's easy to ignore. And McAfee is hardly the only software company who charges for technical support. In fact, you'll be hard pressed to find a software company that doesn't charge these days. Yes, it's ridiculous for us to have to pay when we have a problem with their software, but it seems yet another annoyance and rip off foisted on us by almost all of the software companies, so I see no reason to blame McAfee alone for what is now an industry-wide policy. I've been a McAfee fan for years and VirusScan Professional 8.0 gave me no reason to switch. It's a good program.

1-0 out of 5 stars Horrible company - avoid McAfee products like the plague
Pros:

-It can detect most viruses and updates are available almost every day

- It can be obtained free after mail-in rebates.

Cons:

- It won't always be able to delete/disinfect virus files that it detects

- Starting around a month before your update subscription ends, McAfee "Buy New Subscription" pop-ups appear, you click on the x to close and they disappear...... for 60 seconds. Then they reappear, you click on the x ..... a minute later it comes back. There are only two ways to stop these popups - go online with your credit card number to McAfee.com to resubscribe to their update service or uninstall the McAfee program. Customer service and tech support both refused to tell me how to disable these continuously reappearing and incredibly annoying pop-ups.

- Tech support is virtually non-existant, unless you call in to their $2.95/minute or $39.99/issue support lines. E-mails get canned, non-responsive answers. The FAQ section of their website has no responses to real questions and the "24/7" tech support chat system is always busy or non-functional - its unavailable 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

- Having registered a previous version of a McAfee product may prevent you from getting updates on subsequent versions that the user legitimately acquires. I bought both Viruscan Professional 8.0 and Personal Firewall Plus, after getting VS Home 7.0 (both were free after rebates - the only reason I purchased them) and when the auto update tries to give me the current update of my new programs when I go online, it tells me "You are not authorized to receive this service." An e-mail to customer support got me back a confirmation that I am properly registered for the two new programs and I should have no problems. I guess continuing to receive the "You are not authorized to receive this service" response when I try to update the virus database isn't a problem for McAfee. However, it is a damn big problem for me.

-Who knows what sort of spy-ware McAfee installs on your computer with its standard installation? A quick check with Windows Explorer reveals that their uninstallation procedure does not uninstall 100% of the components of the McAfee software you have installed, that is for sure.

Avoid this horribly run company and its products. Even though it's not costing me any more than tax and postage after the rebates to re-subscribe, I think that's still the opposite of a bargain and I regret my decision to stay with McAfee. In retrospect, I should have gone with either Norton or one of the several freeware antivirus programs. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

With new computer viruses appearing on the Internet and being featuredin the news almost every day, it pays to protect your Mac from unwelcomeinfections. Not only does Norton AntiVirus 7.0 protect your computer from macroviruses (the most common form of virus on the Macintosh), but it even monitorsfor virus-like activity indicating that you could have a virus.

If you suspect that a virus has already infected your Mac, you can start up fromthe Norton CD and scan your computer before you even install the software.Installation is simple, and only requires you to select a level of protectionfrom "No Protection," if you prefer to scan for viruses manually, to "FullProtection," which will scan all programs, files, and e-mail attachmentswhenever you download or use them.

If you already use Norton Utilities6.0, then installation of Norton AntiVirus 7.0 will even add an AntiVirusbutton to the Norton Utilities main control screen. Another advantage of NortonAntiVirus 7.0 is the LiveUpdate feature. This allows you to check for updates tothe Norton AntiVirus 7.0 application and virus definitions with a single click,or to specify times to check automatically when you are online.

Once you have scanned all the files and applications on your hard drive thefirst time, checking for viruses on new files that you download is so fast thatyou hardly notice it happening. In all, Norton AntiVirus 7.0 provides a user- friendly and extremely powerful way of keeping your Mac virus-free andprotected. --Daniel Jardine ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars NAV 7.0 Offers Good Protection for Macs
"Norton AntiVirus 7.0" by Symantec offers Mac users good protection from most "known" computer viruses, not just the "macro" viruses which did infect some Macintosh systems before Microsoft made a patch available to MS Word users late last year. (Be sure to use the "Word Count" feature on any "old" MS Word files that were created prior to using NAV 7.0, or after installing the MS Word patch, when using NAV 6.0.)

While NAV 7.0 offers the same LiveUpdate feature as NAV 6.0, I have found that this dial-up feature, (which your modem can access directly or through an ISP with the Apple Remote Access control panel enabled), seems to download new virus definitions somewhat less often than the previous version, or about once a month. However, when I have used my browser to access the relevant area on the Symantec website, I seem to be able to "update" virus definitions, libraries, and vir.scan.dat files more often.

The NAV 7.0 "live updates" take less time than do the NAV 6.0 ones, and the anti-virus detection goes on in the background. The few times I have received "warnings" have been when I was installing software (without disabling this anti-virus application) or otherwise making some modification of a setting on the System folder. NAV 7.0 interfaces very well with Mac OS 9.1 and OS 9.04. (I hope it interfaces with Mac OS X.)

This software is also part of Norton SystemWorks 1.0, so if you purchase that application software you do not need to buy NAV 7.0 separately, (although I did so because I bought SystemWorks 1.0 later). In SystemWorks 1.0, there are separate buttons for NAV 7.0 and LiveUpdate, as well as for Norton DiskDoctor; Speed Disk; FileSaver, UnErase, and Volume Recover, (which I had had to disable with Mac OS 9.0 and OS 9.04, but now these last three features work fine with Mac OS 9.1). If you suspect an infection of your hard disk, you can restart your Mac by using the CD-ROM as your start-up disk, while holding down "c" on your keyboard. Be sure to disable any password protection first.

In this separate version of NAV 7.0, the LiveUpdate is part of the application. (If you click on the "Apple" and read "About Norton AntiVirus," you can see this summary: the creation date of your "Current Norton AntiVirus Defs file"; the creation date of your Current Norton AntiVirus Library file"; the creation date and versions of the current vir.scan.dat files; and the creation date of your Current Norton AntiVirus Macro Scan Lib file. This information helps you to keep up your anti-virus LiveUpdates when you choose not to have regularly scheduled ones set in your Preferences.

The Preferences for NAV 7.0 are excellent. You can customize those areas that you wish to protect, and you can perform a manual scan at any time. You can turn on and off "Auto Protect." The Scan/Repair Preference is excellent--you can choose several levels of auto repair, from minor to major fixes. A complete report is created which you can save and print. You can set both General and Custom Preferences to reflect the level of protection you want. As well, you can perform preventive actions, and decide how you wish to be alerted, and for how long, if a potential virus or virus-like activity is detected on your computer.

I recommend Norton AntiVirus 7.0 highly. You can use any e-mail application, internet browser, and online service with peace of mind, knowing that you have this software protection. In addition, I recommend that you obtain and install Norton Personal Firewall 1.0 (Macintosh) by Symantec to insure even more protection for the files on your Macintosh computer.

2-0 out of 5 stars Slowed the system too much.
I used Norton Systemworks 2001 on my old laptop with Windows 1998. Considering the laptop was second-hand when I bought it in March 2000, had 2GB hard-drive, 40mb RAM and a Pentium 133MHz processor - I gave the credit to Norton for making it last until February of this year. And even then, it was the screen that went on it. I bought a new laptop shortly afterwards, and as I had so much sucess with Norton Systemworks 2001, I thought I would treat myself to the latest version, and bought Norton Systemworks Pro 2004. I had no problem installing the software, and enjoyed seeing familar features like the one-button check-up. However, I noticed a considerable decrease in performance on my laptop (Inspiron 8600) after the installation. It seemed to take twice as long to start-up and shut-down, and programs took longer to load. DVDs etc. did not seem to run as smoothly, and the computer seemed to revert to a lower spec in terms of it's overall performance - which was not my intention at all. I made a mistake by not reading reviews prior to purchasing the product, and being blinded by my experiences of previous Norton products. I have since uninstalled the software (I encountered no problems here either) and asked for a refund from Symantec. I am pleased to say that the computer's performance has returned to normal. Perhaps Norton should go back to the drawing-board here - and rather than try and adapt their software to Windows XP and higher spec systems, completely start from scratch. I think that after reading most of these reviews, a change of name for this product might be the best thing for Norton's reputation!

1-0 out of 5 stars Save your time and money. Buy something else!
This is the single worst software purchase I have ever made. I bought Norton 2004 Professional because of Norton's reputation and a good mail-in-rebate offer. After following all pre-installation instructions, the software crashed during installation. After following all uninstall/reinstall instructions, same problem. After following all Symantec online tech support instructions, same problem. After emailing Symantec for support (and changing so many settings on my computer that I'm pretty sure its even more vulnerable than before I started), same problem. BTW, Symantec says it will respond w/in 48 hours, more like 4 to 8 days per correspondence. I have now spent way more time than any rebate is worth, still don't have protection and Symantec wants to charge me about $40 to actually talk to a support person by phone. Lastly, after giving up on the disc software I purchased, I downloaded the trial version. It worked great. Only problem, the product code I paid for can't be used to activate the trial software. (Why? Because that's Symantec's policy, that's why.) So, I'm stuck with a trial version that expires in 15 days, but I can't activate it without paying for the software twice. HORRIBLE! AVOID AT ALL COSTS!

3-0 out of 5 stars Use only GoBack and Ghost, disregard the rest.
I have not used Systemworks Pro since version 2002 (and I will never again, it bogs down any PC and the system utilities have messed up my PC way too many times), however I am a very happy user of GoBack 3 De-Luxe and Ghost 2002.
I purchased Goback before Roxio sold it to Symantec, so mine still has the Roxio/Adaptec user interface, but hopefully has not been able to mess it up in just a couple of months.

I would say: if you like to have a tuned-up working PC (and that should be the reason that pushes one to shop for Systemworks, your best bet is probably to became proficient with Goback and Ghost included in Systemworks and forget about any system cleaning/tuning utilities.

Ghost will allow you to create a copy of your system (hopefully at a time when it is working fine) that can be reinstalled in a matter of minutes (or hours, depending on size).
Goback allows to goback to the past to undo the bad effects of an installation or anything wrong.
It is similar to the system restore that is part of Windows XP or Me, but a lot more powerful (after going back you can still recover specific files from the "future" that you might want to keep, or if Windows ain't booting, no problem: Goback Deluxe kicks in before the Bios looks for an OS, so just press the space bar when prompted by GoBack and pick the time to go back to.

This is a Duo that keep your system running forever, but you need to learn how to use them properly (Disclaimers, Inc.).

Important: my suggestion is to use only Ghost and Goback out of Systemworks, so it takes some tinkering with the installation, and a lot of disabling services and options after the installation, to try to limit the PC paralysis induced by a default Norton installation and to avoid being harassed by the stupid Norton Protected Recycled bin, clean sweeper, windoctor, big brother or whatever else they are called, another option is to get standalone versions of Ghost and Goback, or even better to download free 15 day trials from Symantec, test them out, license them if you like them.

1-0 out of 5 stars Sucks big time
What a disappointment! I was *very* happy with Norton's Sytemworks 2003 - it worked really smoothly and transparently. My subscription was ending so I thought I'd upgrade to 2004. BIG mistake. It completely gummed up my otherwise zippy system. Everything slowed to a crawl, from start up down even to ordinary text editing. I have no idea what it was doing, but I'd type something and the cursor was in some sort of time warp, about three centuries behind. Navigation through a document was even worse: click click click click the damned thing was still stuck and then would zoom off to some other place. Apparently this was because Norton was busy checking something or the other. The guys at Norton must understand one thing: too much paranoia just leads to inefficiency. If you're going to spend all your time checking for viruses, you don't get work done. Good security software leaps in when it's needed. This one assumes that the user is a totally dumb ass and therefore needs Norton's chastity belt; so what if his work goes downt the tube? It's the virus that counts, not the work, right? Wrong. Avoid this like the plague. Stick with 2003. And I just HATE the activation thing. I've been religiously buying their products and I find this totally demeaning. Get a life, ladies.

1-0 out of 5 stars Long time Norton user, and unsatisfied NSW 2004 customer
I have to agree with the reviews listed here. I've used Symantec products for over 10 years, this version stinks. Very large, slow running programs, plenty of General Protection Faults and it destroyed my standard Microsoft Solitaire (SOL.exe) game. Something bad has happened with the 2004 versions, I'm sending it back and trying to re-install NAV 2003. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Mild improvement over the free version
Zone Alarm Pro (ZAPro) 3.0 offers mainly 5 things that the freeware Zone Alarm doesn't: (1) port configuration for each application, (2) cookie control, (3) ad banner blocking, (4) blocking of "mobile code" (i.e. scripts, applets, etc.), (5) "quarantining" of 46 e-mail attachment types.

No. (1) is probably the most noteworthy security addition, but its usefulness depends on the programs you run. It lets you explicitly specifies which TCP or UDP port(s) an application can or cannot use. In the free version, you can only allow an application to use either all or none of the ports (which, admittedly, is good enough for most applications). Some users may find it useful to allow certain ports, while also disallow other ones, that an application can use. For instance, if you run a mail server that offers POP3 and SMTP services, you may want to enable port 110 and 25 while disabling port 143, which is normally for IMAP service that is not always used by mail servers. Also, port configurations must be associated with an application. There is no "global" port configurations available in ZAPro. You are not able to configure a port for all applications. Before you can configure ports, you must add the application to the program list.

(2) and (4) are content-control features that let you control acceptance of cookies and active content. It lets you accept or refuse temporary or permanent cookies, and enable or disable "mobile code" -- scripts, embedded objects, and MIME-type integrated objects. One major plus is you can configure these settings for EACH WEB SITE, which is something you can't do in most browsers. For example, you can enable permanent cookies only for those web sites that require them to function properly; you can disable mobile code for sites that may use harmful scripts; you can set different cookie expiration times for different sites; and so on. There is a "site list" that shows the settings of every site. Every time you go to a new web site, its domain name appears on the site list, so you can modify its settings on the fly. Best of all, even third-party sites appear on the site list, which is useful in dealing with third-party advertising sites that force their way into your browsers (often in the form of pop-up ads).

Some reviewers wrote that ZAPro's ad-blocking feature doesn't work all the time, and pop-up ads are not often blocked. The truth is that advertisers use a variety of ways to create pop-up ads, and I suspect ZAPro's ad-blocking feature cannot catch them all. Some web pages use scripts to create pop-up ads, and you need to disable mobile code in ZAPro in order to block them. Some use cookies to "tell" the web page when to create pop-up ads, and you need to disable cookies. Therefore, you really need to configure DIFFERENT settings for different web sites in ZAPro to deal with them. As mentioned in the last paragraph, this is exactly what ZAPro lets you do.

ZAPro also has the so-called Advanced Mailsafe feature that "quarantines" e-mail attachments. Don't be fooled; this is a useless feature. All it does is RENAME the file extension of the attachments. An e-mail attachment named SETUP.EXE would be renamed to SETUP.ZLn (where n would be from 0 to 9). The problem is obvious: to truly prevent viruses coming out of an e-mail attachment, you need a VIRUS SCANNER. And ZAPro isn't one. Simply renaming the file doesn't solve the problem. Also, after the file is renamed, you are not told what the original file extension was, and you have to open up the ZA log to find out, which is inconvenient. This is poorly designed, poorly implemented feature.

Speaking of the ZA logs, be sure to back them up and read them regularly. They are text files that can be renamed to CSV files so you can import them to a worksheet or database for easier viewing. From the logs, find out which of your ports were probed most frequently, which ones were not probed AT ALL (perhaps ZAPro didn't detect any probe because the ports were WIDE OPEN!), which originating IP addresses have probed your machine the most often, etc. My logs from the last five months show that among the 4000-plus probes detected by ZAPro (which comes to about 20 a day), TCP port 1433 were probed 3000-plus times! (Port 1433 is normally used by Microsoft SQL Server. I do have a MS SQL Server, but it's behind the firewall and invisible from the internet. Also, the popular firewall-testing web site grc.com DOESN'T check port 1433.)

My conclusion is the ZAPro's additional feature are a mixed bag, and they don't justify the additional price.

One last thing is that even though the system requirements don't explicitly say so, ZA and ZAPro do run on Windows 95 (I tested it on OSR2).

1-0 out of 5 stars Zone Alarm = HEADACHE, AGGRAVATION AND WASTED TIME AND $$$!!
Downloading and installing zone alarm was THE WORST mistake I've made since owning my computer!

Immediately upon attempting to install this product my computer shut, restarted, then shut down again. My computer repeatedly continued to do so until I paid a skilled tech to come over and attempt to fix the problem. He was able to get my computer operating again but my access to the internet via cable modem timed out after about 8 minutes. The only way to re-access the internet was to completely reboot, but my internet access still continued to time out after 8 minutes. My internet provider believed the problem was not with my internet access, but with my computer. After uninstalling this zone alarm piece of junk and uninstalling my other anti-virus software, the issue was still not resolved.

In the end I had to do a complete system restore on my computer. Right now I have, (12 hours and $100+ dollars later),
finally gotten my computer back to normal (almost).

Based on previous reviews and my techs analysis, there was a conflict with Zone Alarm and my already installed anti-virus software that was not resolved by uninstalling Zone Alarm. Apparently "uninstall" doesn't mean "COMPLETELY uninstall" Zone Alarm.

This product is worse than any virus I've ever encountered. If you decide to install it after these reviews, then caveat emptor (even if it is free) and heaven help you!

1-0 out of 5 stars latest version is a bomb
I used to love zone alarm. I first used the free version, then upgraded to ZA Plus. Program worked beautifully, no problems at all. Then came the notice that ZAPlus was being discontinued, and the company was providing a free upgrade to the latest version of ZA Pro. Like an idiot, I downloaded it, and have nothing but problems since doing so: very slow boot-up and shut-down, system hangs and crashes --ZA Pro even temporarily disabled my AV e-mail scan. Some advice for prospective zone alarm customers: DO NOT USE THE LATEST VERSION OF THIS PROGRAM (v.5) It is filled with bugs, and ZA tech support is not being of much help. (They advise you to uninstall and go back to a previous version, or disable various other programs to see if there's a compatibility issue. Don't know about you, but I have better things to do with my leisure time)

It's really a shame. ZA used to be one of the best firewalls around.

1-0 out of 5 stars It is a piece of rubbish, Do NOT buy.
ZoneAlarm has gone from being one of the best Windows Firewalls on the market to quite possibly the worst. If you are lucky it will serve you well. If you are unlucky you will find it buggy, and want to uninstall it ; that's when your life will become miserable. The uninstall procedure is completely broken. Zone Labs document an extremely complicated way of uninstalling it manually, involving deleting dozens of system files manually and editing the registry. This procedure is not something the average user will want to contemplate doing. Even after following this procedure many people, including highly qualified and vastly experienced computer professionals, are left with partially or wholly crippled PCs, their only recourse being to wipe the hard drive and reinstall Windows and all of their software from scratch. Do NOT buy Zone Alarm, it is utter garbage. A much better idea is to buy a hardware based firewall/router.

5-0 out of 5 stars Never had any problems. Works great.
A nice package.
I have never had any problems, not like some of the other folks that have written a product review.

The program installed fine.

Setup was easy.

Automatic updates made life with zone alarm a breeze.

Great for computer neophytes, as it installs and sets itself up quite easily.

Good product, in my experiences with it. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Extremely Effective and comprehensive ad blocker
Zeroads is excellent software. I have tried nearly every ad blocking and pop-up blocking software on the market before I settled on this one. Most ad and pop up blockers are limited to a few types of ads or only pop-ups. Zeroads uses low level network packet sniffing technology based on Microsoft's Layered Service Provider protocol to interercept and modify ad content before it gets to the computer. The result it that it blocks pop-ups, flash ads, gif ads, cookies, and nearly every other form of adware. The block lists are automatically updated weekly by the software. The installation is simple, the user interface is attractive and well designed, and the model is set it and forget it as everything is automated. Web surfing with Zeroads is not only "cleaner" but generally much faster. This program is addictive and I always run it on my laptop.

As a software developer I think an important factor to note is that the layered software protocol is a widely abused system protocol by many software companies and malware. Any search on McAffee forums, or Oracle both of which have software components that use the same protocol have had customers that have experienced incompatability with other Layered Software Protocol applications. Spyware and Malware such as webhancer often use this protocol both incorrectly and maliciously. The result it that when two such applications interact users can experience a severed net connection unless the offending application is removed. Zeroads does do a good job of detecting incompatabile LSP's and even alerting the user as to spyware that may have affected their network connection. Also I found FBM software's 24/7 tech support to be responsive and helpfull.

This program is an essential net surfing tool and I highly recommend it.

1-0 out of 5 stars It kept ruining my internet connection
I downloaded it from Amazon and from the beginning I had problems. I had windows 2000 at the time. Well I downloaded it and immediatly it destroyed my connection and couldn't get back on the internet for weeks. I removed it and was done with it. Well I upgraded to Windows XP and I tried downloading again but with a different type of internet connection. Well first off it is really hard to figure out, so someone who isn't technically savvy would have a really hard time deciding how to set everything at. And if I were to leave my computer sit just for a couple of minutes I would be thrown offline (this was due to Zero ads because when I removed it, I didn't have the problem anymore). Plus it didn't even block the ads it was awful, don't waste your time and money. I'm still searching for something that actually works and I haven't been able to find anything. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Big mistake
I had McAfee version 7 on my computer for one year. I updated to Version 8 according to their instructions and have had nothing but problems since.

Their technical support is all but non existent. Now I can't delete the software. It has an insert disk box popping up everytime the computer resarts, their shredder option has disappeared, I'm getting runtime script errors and I keep getting booted of my internet connection.

Their only technical support is through email, chat or $2.95 aminute on the phone. I have gotten no where with the first two options. I can't afford to spend $2.95 a minute on the third option.

They have apretty goood racket going. They sell you the product, don't take responsibility for it and then want to charge you to fix what they messed up.

1-0 out of 5 stars Never, never buy McAfee
The support is the worst you could ever concieveably imagine. The product is average, but it is the support that really makes this a one star. Imagine how much effort gets put into creating software if they're this lousy at communication.

1-0 out of 5 stars Just Trouble
I installed McAfee Virus Scan and developed intermittent problems with other software. It also occasionally prevented the printer from working and disabled Cookie Cop. I have since used AVG (free program) and Norton AntiVirus with no problems.

McAfee's support was terrible.

1-0 out of 5 stars DON'T BUY THIS
I'm on my second day of trying to get this installed. It's the WORST experience I've ever had with software. It caused my computer to crash several times. First time I installed the Home Edition didn't appear. I had to uninstall/reinstall. Then the Firewall didn't appear. Had to do same thing. Then...on and on.

5-0 out of 5 stars Better than that other suite
I'm extreamly pleased with Fix-it Utilities. I once purchased norton system utilities and I returned it the next day, V-com fix-it utilities actually does what norton said it would. I think the regestry utilities included are great. The reg cleaner, defragger worked well, and didnt cause any system errors like other products I've tried. I haven't switched to the antivirus from the product I use now, but even without the antivirus this suite of utilities is a bargain.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Good program
This is and excellent program but for money I would go for the systemsuite. It is the same with a lot more features, options and six trial programs for about the same price. I'm the proud owner of both programs and I highly recommend both.

5-0 out of 5 stars Better than Norton
This program offers all of the features offered by Systemworks (anti-virus, disk defrag, windows maintenance, etc.), but has a Registry Fixer that catches registry errors that Systemworks misses (there are literally hundreds of them). It then lists them as green, yellow and red (depernding upon how critical they may be to your system) so that you can decide which to delete. It also offers a Registry Defrag feature (unavailable on Norton), to optimize registry performance. These two features alone justify the cost of the product.

While it does offer anti-virus protection, it does not include a firewall, anti-spam or spyware blocking. For these features, the best program is PC-cillin Internet Security 2004.

5-0 out of 5 stars A good product, however.
Personally I'd go the extra few bucks and buy the upgraded product from this company, their Systemsuite 5.0

It's easier than upgrading later.

5-0 out of 5 stars Much, much better than ....
I switched from the leading utility when a) they started to charge for anti-virus signature updates, and 2) the auto-update stopped working with no fixes available. The latter was, of course, critically important,especially since my children were not able to download updates manually. (Of course, it has always been possible to get the latest anti-virus signatures without the fee if you knew the trick, but I really resented the extra fee. It began to feel like buying their software was paying to get the right to pay more, and more, and more... )

The Fix-It utilities are much better. The defragmentation module is very fast, as is the disk integrity check. These are the most commonly run tasks.

In addition the Powerdesk utility included (and also sold separately)has itself won several awards for being superior to the Windows Explorer. The dual pane window makes moving files much easier and the preview pane is enormously helpful when file name are not sufficiently descriptive.

Highly recommended! ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars BUYER BEWARE
If you had asked me how good this product had been for the past several years (or maybe decade), I would have rated it at 5 stars simply because I had never encountered a virus to begin with and it never game me problems conflicting with other software, UNTIL.......
I had a "worm" (Zafi) infection on 6/13/04 with an up to date engine and this peice of crap didn't pick it up. McAfee's website said one needs an engine no loder than 6/14/04!!! That's 3 days after the worm had spread and infected my system already. The worm didn't allow me to run and install an update so I used McAfee's stinger to locate and disinfect the system (for that, I'm thankful). When I attempted to reinstall Mcafee ver.8, I got the message that a newer version is installed on my system already but I can no longer locate it to delete. I went over their site and took step-by-step to manually uninstall. Did all of that and the software still wouldn't install. I contacted their chat support. A total nightmare. 2 hours chatting with tech who's probably helping (or should I say wasting other people's time) and giving me total generic answers that don't even pertain to my peoblem. That's total BS and fraud to sell software that couldn't do what it was supposed to do (i.e. protect me from a worm because their engine required to detect it was not up to date till 3 days later), then the software I paid 40$ for to last me 1 year (and only had for 3 months), I can no longer reinstall on my machine and all their tech support can do is to tell me to defrag and do clean install when I had way beoyend that to clean every trace of the old software to no avail. What a shame. Wish I was an attorney with the time needed to pursue this. I'm sure there are others like me facing this situation as I type this. For those giving this one 5 stars, wait till you get infected with a virus or a worm with an up to date engine that proves useless then try to get the software up after the worm disables it and find out you can no longer reinstall because the disk keeps seeing a ghost newer version when nothing exits and no customer support. Hope will have better luck with Norton. I'll be shopping for a new virus scan software tomorrow. Hope this helps. I'm mad.
6/23/04 Bought the Zonealarm Security suite and so far have been satisfied with it. It's a new release and I could only find it at their website.

5-0 out of 5 stars McAfee does a great JOB
I have a gateway computer, and my computer was having problems with some worm i got. Anyways, they told me that I needed to get norton, funny thing was, I already had there free trial, that was suppose to work for 90days, I tried the free trial at McAfee, and my computer started to work...I guess norton does work but it is so much more. McAfee does exactly the same thing as Norton with the only difference being $$$$. After a week I bought McAfee Internet Security suite. That is the best protection I have ever had!

5-0 out of 5 stars McAfee A#1
After having Norton av 2004 crashing my 2 year old Dell it was time to finally get rid of Norton. I decided to give McAfee 8.0 a chance regardless of other negative reviews that I had read about it. I have to say that I am very pleased with this product. It installed with no problem and I don't have any annoying pop-up's that other people are writing about. I am glad I switched from the over-priced poor performing Norton av. NORTON IS THE VIRUS !!!

1-0 out of 5 stars McAfee sent back
I've been using AVG Anti Virus for several months. I was told that Mc Afee was better. So I decided to upgrade to the better product. This is the first product I've paid for that hit me with advertisements. Then every time I boot I have screens that let me know I don't have other Mc Afee products installed. The system check told me of I was not safe as I did not have some of the products installed. The last straw was when they sent my rebate back for no UPC code enclosed, a bold lie. This was the last straw. I'm now back to the free AVG Anti virus. They have updates almost daily way more than Mc Afee, my system runs faster, I don't look at "nag" screens, and I'm virus free. This time the free product is better. Keep your money and let you computer run better! They don't make it easy to get your money back.

2-0 out of 5 stars Cranky piece of software
As a long time Norton AntiVirus user, I switched to McAfee VirusScan about four months ago. Big, big mistake. Does it stop viruses, worms, and trojans? Yea, when the software is working. Unlike Norton AntiVirus, McAfee VirusScan is prone to script errors and all sorts of the other little bugs. This renders your PC unable to scan your files. As an example, if you change your date format from the typical mm/dd/yyyy format, McAfee goes crazy. It doesn't work. From what I can tell, McAfee must use Internet Explorer as its framework or something. Very annoying.

Well, then I started getting more script errors that were supposedly related to Microsoft's task scheduler. After finding that all of McAfee's FAQs on the subject didn't help, I tried talking with McAfee's chat support. I could tell that the poor guy on the other end was justing cutting and pasting potentional solutions. I kept telling him that I had already tried all his suggestions, but he couldn't take the hint. After a while, he wanted me to check with Microsoft support for help. Talk about passing the buck. And have you ever tried to get support from Microsoft? Yea, right.

So I ended up deleting McAfee VirusScan from my PC. I went back to Norton AntiVirus 2004 this week and feel much more secure now. Seriously. I don't know why I tried switching in the first place. Norton always worked like a charm. I'm sticking with Norton AntiVirus from now on. ... Read more
