Amazon.com Review

McAfee VirusScan 7.0 protects your PC against a wide range of viruses, Trojan horses, and other rogue programs. With so many viruses being transmitted by e-mail, you absolutely need an antivirus program to protect your PC and, more importantly, your data.

McAfee VirusScan 7.0 installs easily from the CD-ROM and immediately checks your PC for any viruses that may already have infected it. As soon as you connect to the Internet it downloads the latest updates to ensure you are up-to-date with all the newest virus signatures.

To enable it to work effectively, McAfee VirusScan 7.0 operates on many levels. The new Hostile Activity Watch Kernel (HAWK) constantly monitors your PC for viruslike activity and integrates well with many different e-mail clients. The VShield feature 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 checking them before you open them.

Another common way hackers infect PCs is by using scripts in e-mails. McAfee VirusScan 7.0 works well here, too, by looking for suspicious behavior in scripts such as those trying to open, write, or delete files. Anything suspect is stopped immediately.

For users running Win 98, 98 SE, and Me only there is a Safe & Sound function that makes copies of your documents and keeps them safe in case they get damaged by data corruption or virus activity. Note that this does not work on Windows 2000 and XP.

Some of the latest viruses can stop antivirus programs from working properly once they have infected a machine. If you suspect this has occurred, you can boot your PC directly from the McAfee VirusScan 7.0 installation CD-ROM, ensuring a clean environment for it to work in. You can also create a boot floppy to do the same thing.

Like the other products in McAfee's security range, McAfee VirusScan 7.0 uses Instant Updater, which constantly checks for product updates and automatically downloads these when you are online. Of course, any antivirus product is only as good as its ability to stop viruses from infecting your system. Happily, McAfee VirusScan 7.0 has been given a 100% rating by Virus Bulletin (although this assumes you do keep your product up-to-date with Instant Updater).

McAfee VirusScan 7.0 is a worthy update, and existing users will appreciate the improved security this release offers. --Iain Laskey, Amazon.co.uk ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent combination of Anti-Virus and Firewall!
I have used VirusScan 5.21 together with Black Ice Defender firewall without any problems other than significant slowing down of the system at times. I purchased VirusScan 6.0 but decided not to install it given the large number of problems reported on this webpage. Having read the favorable comments on VirusScan 7.0, I decided to purchase it (free with the special offers at the time from McAfee and Amazon.com)and give it a try.
The results are amazing! I have not had my computer (a 450 mhz- "slow" these days!)operate so well since I purchased it four years ago! Absolutely everything runs extremely well, with no slowdown of anything whatsoever!
The amount of information McAfee provides with respect to all aspects of what is happening all of the time is astounding! Installation is very, very easy- no problems at all! I very highly recommend it and appreciate having customer reviews on this website!

1-0 out of 5 stars DANGEROUS PRODUCT
This product is dangerous. It is designed to give information. The McAfee company is also deceptive both in it's advertisements for the sales of this product and on it's support site.

Examples: McAfee Instant Updater. Claimed by McAfee to have been "debugged" from the previous version 6. NOT SO! If the user chooses to configure the Updater to automatically update, then any answer given to user on new, available DATs will most likely be false. AND once the Updater has been configured in this way, it will ALWAYS malfuntion, even if the user reconfigures to manually update at a later date.

What is the big deal? How can you tell if new DATS are there when the Instant Updater cannot now tell you the "truth"??? The vast majority of the time, it will tell the user that you are "updated" when in fact you are NOT.

AND McAfee has claimed this problem was fixed, so how is the new and/or loyal user to know it was NOT? Hint: dig very deeply into ALL of the text files for the info McAfee provides you.

To fix: You must now configure to manually update. The Instant Updater will appear to check for you anyhow, but you cannot trust it's function anymore. Click to manually check for new DATS manually. It is not difficult, but it must be done daily.

Example of information loss: The Firewall looks to be mostly splash and more of a help to marketers on the Net. Why? The program deliberately unblocks essential programs to release information packets, including data from emails, to Internet marketers. The most notable and worrisome is the ICMP blocking option. McAfee claims it is blocked by default.

NOT TRUE!!! It must be continuously manually checked and set to block. It must be checked throughout the entire online session. It "unblocks" itself when the user chooses to merely look at network activity on the cute splash screen. And it releases more packets of information.

The user cannot choose to look at the logged warnings--the ICMP blocks will be lifted again--something that should not happen. The user cannot visit sites such as IMDB and other large Internet business without again, configured blocks such as the ICMP miraculously "unblocking" themselves again.

When the user chooses to "save log" of the warnings and alerts, which INCLUDE the binary codes sent out, and any reconfiguration that has been done--again; McAfee unblocks specific safety nets to release even THIS information not only to itself, but to others, including Internet marketing information companies.

The blocks lift again when users type in passwords to specific large and commercial sites. It lifts again when the site's emails are opened.

Example: when a "SYN" port attack occurs, McAfee will block, BUT will also display a vibrant warning with the encouragement to trace---you do this, your vital blocks will be dropped again.

They should not be lifting for these reasons!! And there is no warning at all to the user. Except for the fun little log listing that when the user clicks to look at . . . lifts the blocks again!

The ONLY reason for the ping blocking programs to be lifted is when the user utilizes the "trace" system. Of course, the user must be aware that their ICMP is not going to go back up.

This is not a virus problem, people. And it's not a buggy program. McAfee is not a stupid company.

Tech support and site problems: VERY bad and deliberately so. Designed for optimum encouragement to buy.

Example: "MyDoom" virus. Users had to go to the McAfee site to download DATS and STINGER. Of course, this was correct because of the specifics of the virus. HOWEVER, when the user tried to click on the "DATs" link, he was brought directly to a new, huge and brightly colored page advertising McAfee's latest Antivirus Package. At an incredible cost.

This happened over and over several times, during which time, non-stop pop-ups appeared screaming warnings about the user's pc system being in danger without additional protection by affiliated companies.

The "re-up" subscription was doubled in price from the time of purchase. Company rights? Sure. The timing? Superb.

When users tried to access for help online, they were blocked, knocked offline, given obviously auto-generated "chats" for a short period of time before being "accidently" disconnected.

Emails were not answered for weeks, and then not without threats of action.

Callers who tried to call company numbers to express very real worries and concerns were put on hold indefinately and hung up on.

This company is a disgrace. They are overt thieves. Their programs are NOT sloppily written. Any user should not let themselves be told by McAfee or even a buddy that they really do not understand software and that they are at fault.

This dinosaur of a programmer knows a program design when she sees one.

If you want to be lulled by a cheaper priced-company who uses the useless and out-dated word "user-friendly" as a encouragement to buy . . .

If you want to be forced to pick up the phone and pay almost $3.oo a minute to tech support . .

If you want to loose private information from your very own well-configured Firewall, with McAfee's sanctions, and then be bullied and frightened into believing that YOU are at fault for not being knowlegable . . .

Then by all means, this is absolutely the product for you. It is the ultimate in American marketing skills.

My advice? Go with Norton. They've been around for decades doing professional work with far more applause from professionals and give truly legitimate awards. Always check out who gives any company their "Award-Winning" reviews.

Watch how fast I'm booted.

1-0 out of 5 stars Buy McAfee and get pestered with their own promo pop-ups
Life with McAfee is hell. Eleven months after you buy the product, the software starts to generate pop-ups which advertise their promotions. These pop-ups are impossible to disable. Think of the worst spam you've ever had. This is worse. Don't touch this prodct.

1-0 out of 5 stars McAfee VirusScan and Firewall similar to shareware
I really regret discontinuing my Norton service in exchange for the cheaper McAfee. I'm encouraged to see the thoughtful comments of so many more sophisticated users echoing the same thoughts I have about this product. I find it very, very depressing to buy a retail product loaded with pop ups and "partner advistements" penetrating the fire wall. This has been a regretful experience couple with lots of frustration. Pay a few dollars more and stay away from this product.

1-0 out of 5 stars Avoid this junk at all cost !
Cons: You can't repair it, you can't remove it, and the tech support stinks.

Pros: It looks pretty and takes up lots of disk space. The CD disk makes for a nice dog toy and the box is good for small bits of rubish and perhaps as another dog toy.

Giving this a rating of one star is generous, infact I feel they should be giving me a few stars back in exchange for this worthless junk. Avoid this mess at all costs !! ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Powerful, unobtrusive, and very easy to use, Trend Micro's popular PC-cillin 2002 is an all-inclusive virus and hacker defense system. If you regularly or even occasionally connect to shared sources such as a LAN, the Internet, or e-mail, PC-cillin will help keep your system safe from external attacks.

The program installs in less than a minute and conveniently organizes its many components in a single half-screen control panel. Accessed from the system tray, PC-cillin allows you to manually analyze and immunize drives and folders, or schedule a series of ongoing investigations. It creates a personal firewall to protect against hackers and other invaders, and automatically scans incoming e-mail for harmful attachments. It detects and cleans any Trojan horses that may already be present on your system, and cloaks your computer from future Trojans. It also keeps your surfing safe by guarding against malicious, interactive applets.

Contrary to its title, PC-cillin is not just for your desktop computer. Every time you connect a PDA, the included PC-cillin for Wireless utility will scan that, too. The program also offers a Web filter to block access to certain Internet sites, although it doesn't allow you to set general parameters for barricading a given category of sites. Instead, you must type each individual URL into a provided field.

It should be noted that even the most powerful antivirus software is potentially susceptible to new, undefined viruses. In this respect, PC-cillin operates on a "what they do" rather than "how they are written" concept, targeting viruses by tendencies rather than by recognized coding. Furthermore, the program keeps itself fresh and upgraded by systematically checking the Trend Micro Web site for new information.

In our tests, PC-cillin did not negatively impact performance, nor did it perplex us with multiple interfaces or unexpected operations. For a hassle-free arsenal of antivirus defense mechanisms, PC-cillin 2002 is a worthy choice. --Gordon Goble ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Works but messes up my email
The product works pretty good at preventing infections but has problems. I never had a problem with viruses while I was using it, but it changed my email POP3 settings every time my computer was turned on, preventing me from getting email. The only way I could get email was to go in and manually change the settings back, a real chore. PC-cillin support was no help with preventing the need for this. When I stopped using PC-cillin I changed to another anti-virus program and it is able to protect me without messing up my email settings. The support staff told me to download the "international" version, which seemed to cause me all kinds of problems. It went downhill from there with just one problem after another until I gave up and decided to switch to another vendor. PC-cillin was very hard to remove from my computer. It's one of those products that even when you "uninstall" leaves stuff on your computer that interferes with a clean new install. I had to get support to help me and they were reluctant to help me and it seemed to be followed up with a virus attack.

3-0 out of 5 stars excellent protection, bad browsing compatiblity
I got this product with my Asus M/B. I also got PC cillin 2000 with my old Asus M/B which I used until I got Norton Works 2002 at which point my HD was wiped clean by the A-hole virus(don't know the real name) Now with my new M/B I will only use PC Cillin despite it's lack of support for certain websites(many official ones), such as the Asus website, and many gaming co sites. I get the "Active X cannont load BS onto computer" error message, but I think it is worth it to keep my $3100 computer from Falcon running properly.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Good Anti Virus
I got PC-cillin 2002 when I purchased my Main board
and have been using it a few months now.
I was using Norton Antivirus before.
I must say that I am very impressed with PC-Cillin 2002
It is not a drain on resources .
I especially like the firewall feature that it provides.

5-0 out of 5 stars Being tortured by McAfee or Norton?
Then switch to PC-cillen! It works like a dream! I'm running it on my new Dell Desktop and have had absolutely no problems whatsoever since installing it several weeks ago. McAfee demolished my desktop so I promptly removed their software from my new Dell desktop when it arrived. Thank you Sony for including PC-cillen on my Vaio notebook -- otherwise I never would've known about it! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT!

3-0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected...........
After I set the firewall to medium security level, I was unable to change the setting to the highest level.

The option just became cancelled. What do I suppose to do? - reinstall this pc-cillin? It would be stupid.

I wrote them a letter, but never got a response.

I think that Sygate firewall freeware version is the best so far. It seems to be better than firewalls for which we consumers are paying for. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Buggy and tech support is virtually non-existent.
Buggy buggy buggy! On one computer, I can only get NPF to load on 1/3 of all boots (warm or cold). On my other computer, the central (yet separate) updating program -- Symantec LiveUpdate -- automatically CHANGES its connectivity options ITSELF nearly every day, which causes the "LiveUpdate settings" to become "corrupt," making updating either NPF or NAV impossible unless. . . .

One goes through a cumbersome process of scanning the entire hard drive(s) for LiveUpdate's configuration settings, removes them manually, goes to the control panel to reconfigure NEW settings, and then reboots. This works (temporarily) to fix the problem, but it takes about 10 minutes. Do that 10-12 times per week, and you can imagine the frustration factor.

Periodically, this "quick" fix fails, and I have to go through a bizarrely convoluted "uninstall" process for Symantec LiveUpdate. This LENGTHY process is outlined in a "repair" document that, when the screen type is set to "smallest," requires 6 (SIX) pages of paper to describe and about 45 minutes to actually execute.

When that "repair" no longer works, Symantec tech "support" suggests uninstalling and reinstalling everything (that's their solution to nearly every problem -- they seem to have next to zero troubleshooting expertise or, perhaps, zero WILL to help), a process that can take as long as an hour and a half, depending on your CPU clock speed.

I've mentioned the near-uselessness of their email "tech" support. Frankly, I see no "tech" in their "support." Invariably, one is directed to one of a gazillion lengthy online documents that spells out a time-consuming process to keep the customer running in circles, only to find, ultimately, that there is NO way to fix the problem other than UNINSTALLING everything (remember, there are three components here -- NPF, NAV, and LiveUpdate) and then reinstalling ALL THREE. A 1.5 hour process, at least, as I noted above.

I'm completely fed up with Symantec, especially with their repeated "apologies for any inconvenience. . . ." What? "Any" inconvenience? How about the very REAL and repeatedly tangible wastes of time caused not only by buggy software but by their inability and/or unwillingness to actually troubleshoot an issue or fix the bugs in their software rather than simply playing their default "uninstall and reinstall" card. If they truly were sorry, they'd fix the software rather than directing the customer to "keep. . . running" (hat tip to Ralph Ellison).

I'm no programmer, but even I could give that "techincal support advice" (I use the terms loosely). I have no alternative software solutions to suggest, but I strongly warn users to avoid this software like the plague that it is.

Ironically, the anti-virus software works like a charm (it has intercepted dozens of viral emails), and the firewall is impressive in its capabilities and has been excellent. But the inability to keep the products updated because of unauthorized software auto-reconfigurations and subsequent file corruptions thereby, added to the dozens of hours needed to keep that update component functioning properly have made this software and Symantec's lack of useful tech support infuriating.

Update to Symantec 2005?
Not while I'm alive. . . .

4-0 out of 5 stars It's great if you keep it updated...
We use this at work and it is by far the best antivirus program out there. At home, I use the Macintosh version. The best I can say is that there are so many virii on the Window's platform you'd be silly not to have something like this installed. If you're tired of virii, worms, trojans, spyware, etc..., there is another solution. Get a Mac. The piece of mind you get knowing that the operating system is nearly impossible to infect or crack outweighs the tiny learning curve in switching to a different operating system. How many virii have I gotten at my Mac at home in the last 6 months? Zero. How many at work? At least one a week via email. Even our CIO (Information officer) is putting in a proposal as I write this to migrate the entire server and desktop system to the Mac OS X platform, and we're a fortune 500 company. The money saved alone in downtime from systems getting infected (if you can't work, you can't produce!), more than pays for the minor expense of making the switch. NAV is good. But unless you keep your virus definitions up to date, you're asking for a heap of trouble. And how many users really take the time to update their definitions even when the program prompts them to do so? I can count them on one hand. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great product. 2bad though, that 1 product can't do it all.
Okay, I've been fighting spyware, adware, mal-ware ,etc, for over a year now.
Started with Xcleaner, then added Spysweeper, now added
Spyware X-terminator.
[FYI, This product(Spyware X-terminator) appears to be
a re-labeled package of PESTPATROL.
Which is fine, as the price is CHEAPER when labeled as
Spyware X-terminator, than it is when labeled as Pestpatrol].
Anyway, as of now, June 2004, I can't find any SINGLE product that does it all.
I give Spysweeper 5 stars and I give Spyware X-terminator 5 stars.
Both are great products, but each seems to find a couple items that the other doesn't.
Personally, if you can afford it, I'd get both.
Mal-ware [including Spyware, adware, unwanted cookies, etc] has many ugly faces and you need to detect and destroy as many of them as you can.
Xcleaner was my very first anti-spyware package. But it is a multi-purpose tool, but doesn't have the depth of detection abilities that Spysweeper and Spyware X-terminator do.

5-0 out of 5 stars Terrific
This has to be the best spyware out there, ease of use and catches 100% of the pests that are out there. I have tried so-called freebies such as "spy-bot" and "Adaware" but theyre NOT in the same league. So i guess you get what you pay for. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Guard Dog 2.0 (as part of McAfee Office)
I have used Guard Dog as bundeled in McAfee Office Utilites CD-Rom,(DiscClean Up,Defragmenting Hard Drive and etc.) if you have these same utiliteson your PC ( as part of Windows) then don't by this product,just get GuardDog, as they can cuase conflicts with existing programs and take up a lotof space( if you only have 32mb of RAM) and if PC is Y2K Compliant/Readyand you don't need E-Mail security(only works if the persons you send mailto have the same security program) then you don't need McAfee Office. Theversion of Guard Dog that is in this suite of utilitys is 2.0. I have usedwith some succes but do to some problems occuring in Windows I.E. causingme to have to reload my Ops system from the Mfg.Restore CD I have had toreinstall Guard Dog, because even when not reformating the hard drive Iloose parts or all of the program. I have had Inavlid Page fault happen inInternet Explorer after an Illegal Operation occured when during the checkup phase of Guard Dog wher you can clean up deleted programs so they can'tbe recovered, I got an Illegal Operation box on screen, I closed it out andwent on with the rest of the check up and reboot of my PC, but when I wentto go on the Internet after connecting I could surf do to an Invalid PageFault occured requiring reloading of the Ops system and IE 5.0 and upgradefrom MS web site. I contacted McAfee via thier web site and real time chatwith a Tech ansd was sent instructions on to load Guard Dog in safe modewhich I not done yet. If you have some other type of Virus ProtectionProgram on Your PC such as Panda Anti Virus Platinum , do not select thevirus protection during Setup/Interview portion the Installation process,you will save your self some trouble later on in not having to deal withprogram conflicts, also if you don't want the GD Slpash Box at start up,uncheck the box for it you willsave timewhen you start your PC everytime. Another thing to do when setting up Guard Dog is to have it do AutoClean up when you go to shut down your PC intead of being promted to do iteach time at shut down.(it will not touch BookMarked/Favorites web sitecookies,unless you uncheck them in the cookies section of the program.)Thisprogram does do as it says but it does have some problems ,and you canupdate your version by using the limited version of Oil Change that comeswith it(volutary Install prompt). ...

1-0 out of 5 stars McAfee -- "Security Software" from Hell
McAfee reminds me of the 18th-century thieves who, when pursued by the crowd, would join the pursuers shouting "Stop Thief." McAfee sells you "security software" to deal with everything from popups to spyware, and then the program you install annoys you constantly with popups and advertisements for all the McAfee products you haven't yet purchased. If you complain about this to their customer service department, you get a boilerplate response, directions to go to their useless and endless list of FAQ's, and -- get this -- an invitation to use their "priority" phone support system, which costs $2.95 a minute. They are simply the worst, the bottom, the pits. If their practices were done by a normal (non-web) business, their CEO and middle management would probably all be in the penitentiary for deceptive and unethical merchandizing practices. AVOID MCAFEE PRODUCTS AS YOU WOULD AVOID THE PLAGUE. IF YOU ALLOW THEM ONTO YOUR HARD DISK, YOU WILL BE SORRY FOREVER AFTER.

The offer was $49.99, with a $20 "mail-in" rebate. I thought that was about the stupidest thing I ever heard of in my life. I mean, I renew electronically, download electronically, pay electronically, and then supposedly get a rebate through snail mail. But, I needed the virus protection, held my nose, and paid the money.

I emailed McAfee customer support and told them my opinion. They responded to NOTHING that I said and merely noted that my email address was not registered with them as an account. This was strange, since I used that address to log in to their site.

Despite having renewed and downloaded the new version, the software didn't know that I had renewed. I was constantly interrupted to be informed that I needed to register. When I tried to register, the registration didn't work because -- miracle of miracles -- my email address was already registered -- the same email address that their customer support had no record of. (...)

1-0 out of 5 stars Buy another product. McAfee causes popups.
I bought McAfee VS 8.0, installed it on my computer, ran a virus scan, shut down... and the next morning when I boot up I suddenly have a popup problem after two years of being almost completely free of them (using Panicware Pop-Up stopper and Spybot Searh and Destroy - both free products I WOULD recommend). Basically, there's no way around the fact that these popups were and are caused by McAfee. The popups were bypassing my popup stopper even until I uninstalled, re-installed and updated it. When inquiring on the McAfee msg boards they'll admit to causing this very problem when visiting their own websites (and even try to defend it by saying if popups ads didn't work they wouldn't be used) but play dumb and stop replying to the threads when multiple people state that it's much bigger in scope (the popups occur all the time and are not related to the sites you're visiting). On another thread they (of course) recommended buying the McAfee pop-up stopper.

Basically, buying a product such as this and having it cause problems like that is unexcusable in my opinion. It's akin to buying a shampoo that causes constant body odor and having them recommend their own brand of soap to fix the problem. So the low score isn't due to a lack of performance of the product, but rather a lack of morals and ethics displayed by the company.

1-0 out of 5 stars STAY AWAY
I would advise STAYING AWAY from all McAfee AntiVirus products. It hogs up to much resources on the computer. It makes way longer boot up time. And to make things worse.......They cut off my updates after only 8 Months. I paid for the 1 FULL Year of updates. I emailed them but they could care less. I am now using EZ Armor AntiVirus & Firewall. They work great and boot up time is way faster. STAY AWAY FROM McAfee !

1-0 out of 5 stars They can have it back
Rather than flog a dead horse, I'll just say my experience was similar to others who have given this software 'one star': frustrating to install and try to get working, impossible to get rid of easily, and tech support was absolutely no help. I returned mine even though opened software qualifies for only a partial refund. I wouldn't use this if they were giving it away. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Great antivirus...
My experience with antivirus software is, let's say, diverse. I have tried from Norton to McAfee and even the freebie Avast! and I can say the best one I've seen so far is this little engine that could from Spain. Norton is a resource hog, it drains away so much RAM it makes your computer useless. Compared to that, Panda uses few RAM and your system does not sacrifice much resources. Titanium was designed to be as simple as it can be for the regular user, and it is marvelous on that department. You won't get caught up in undecipherable computer mumbo jumbo.. in plain and simple English (or Spanish, your choice) you'll be able to scan your systemn and see how it vulnerable it is to online threats. Its update system is the best and most comprehensive out there, and it sends DAILY files with new virus information to systems, compared to the bi-weekly or when-the-latest-major-crisis-comes-out updates from Norton. Give it a try and you won't be sorry.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best antivirus I've ever used.
I've been using Norton for many years, thinking since it was the most popular it was the best. But it isn't, actually, its one of the worst. So I spent much time researching various antiviruses and tried quite a few, including McAfee, Kaspersky, NOD32, Trend Micro Internet Security and Panda. Trend Micro's antivirus is also very good, especially with the bundled firewall and some other extra features.
I had tried Panda awhile back but it crashed my system so I made up my mind to never use it again. But this was a different system, OS and antivirus version, so after noticing a few good reviews I just decided to try it.
Pros
1)Consumes very little system resources compared to other progs, especially when scanning.
2)Very good scan speed, much faster than any other I've tried.
3)Actually detects AND disinfects the viruses it finds.
4)Easy to use.
5)Nice user interface.
6)Scans for various other infections such as hackertools and jokes.

Cons
Haven't found any.

I do warn you however, I've heard quite a few reports of this crashing systems and doing other unwanted things to peoples systems, so try it at your own risk. For me it worked perfectly.

1-0 out of 5 stars Serious bug
I had a very similar experience as the reviewer from Brooklyn. I went for the free version of this software, downloaded from panda's website. Immediately after rebooting my system I noticed that all the desktop icons were generic looking. And my internet explorer was missing all the bookmarks. I did a lot of digging on my hard drive and on the Internet, in the end I ran across the Brooklyn guy's review and uninstalled Panda. Lo and behold, after another reboot my system was back to normal again. I guess I got it for free so I should of known.

1-0 out of 5 stars Screwed up my IE badly
I highly recommend against Panda Antivirus. Immediately after I installed it (after getting dissatisfied with Norton Antivirus 2004 Professional) it srewed up my Internet Explorer. First, all my favorite links (hundreds of them!) disappeared without a trace. Actually, before that... I had a lot of trouble registering the product on Panda's website, and the username/password they provided me did not work at all. Back to IE... All my favorites were gone! And I could not add any more links. Apparently Panda changed some registry settings for IE that would not allow me to change any settings in IE. If I went into options and tried to change settings, IE would just crash. Also my Internet setting on my Windows XP Home system was reset by Panda. This is absolutely the worst piece of software I've used.

Upon uninstalling it I rebooted and everything went back to normal. I ran McAfee's online virus scan tool to make sure my system was sound.

Definitely stay away! I do not recommend Norton, either. McAfee seems the best bet right now, even though I didn't like their older versions, but at least the 2004 McAfee seems okay so far.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Product and Regular Updates
This is really great antivirus software. I switched to this after Norton let the W32.Blaster worm into my system. Nortons automated updates...maybe a couple times a week..at best were to slow to help me. Panda updates at least daily and often several times as new definitions are defined. It also does not slow down the system as much as Norton did. Norton needes to redesign their software as they cannot compete with this great antivirus software. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Many problems, No support, got 7 months not year I paid 4
I bought the EZ Armour Desktop Security Suite because I'm like a librarian - if I get volume one I have to get the rest. But I had a lot of problems with it. The virus scan crashed my computer about 1 out of 4 times I ran it. I could restart my computer and run it again, no problem. The firewall was a nightmare. It basically prevented me from connecting to the internet. I had to keep it turned off. The support was thru email. If you can't connect to the internet try using email support. When I tried the email support several times it seemed like they missed the point of the question. It took a couple days for them to respond, they I have to write back and say "but you didn't answer my question"! After three or four repetitions of that it wasn't worth bothering to get an answer. The other parts of the suite besides anti-virus and firewall had little or no explanation of what they did or why they were there. No documentation. After 7 months I got notices that my 1 year subscription expired. Telephone support to straighten out the problem cost more than the product itself. I went to the Computer Associates web site and on the main page were notices that they were giving away free one year subscriptions to the virus protection and firewall in the spirit of patriotism or national defense or something. So I downloaded one. 26 days later I got a notice that my 30 day trial was expiring and it was time to make a purchase decision. I totally give up and am shopping around for a different product where one year does not mean 7 months.

5-0 out of 5 stars Couldn't Be Happier!
I'm using the downloaded version of EZ Armor. Dell had installed McAfee on my PC; and since the McAfee Security Center was still there, and it continued to do virus scans, I assumed I had a 1-year account with McAfee. I was wrong. It expired like 5 months ago, and all the virus scans since then were apparently worthless. Thus, I uninstalled McAfee, and installed EZ Armor. Installation of EZ Armor on my Dell with XP was simple; it took like 30 minutes. I later did a virus scan of my entire computer, and it discovered 2 infected files and deleted them.

The firewall is adjustable, but I'm just using the setting they chose. I forgot to turn off the firewall when I did a Windows Update, but that caused no problem. When I forgot to turn off my McAfee firewall during an update, it usually crashed my computer. The privacy protector is lots of fun...it seems all web pages have a web bug that they block for you!

The EZ Armor main page is not as easy to understand as McAfee's Security Center page; but they have an "Ask Sammy" click-on...where you type in your question...and then get a quick answer to it, giving you easy to understand directions for doing what you want to do.

As things are going, I couldn't be happier with EZ Armor. And if they keep going as they are, I will certainly continure to use it as my anti-virus software from now on. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Every computer that's used for e-mail and Internet browsing needs an antivirus program. There are dozens to choose from, and McAfee VirusScan 6.0 is a solid and feature-rich option. Unfortunately, a frustrating interface and minor technical glitches keep VirusScan 6.0 from reaching the lofty, user-friendly peak inhabited by the superior Norton Antivirus.

VirusScan 6.0 had a few minor issues from the onset. For one of our test installations, we upgraded a Windows 2000-based PC from VirusScan 5.x and it didn't go smoothly. The installer attempted to uninstall the earlier version, generated an error, and afterward it was impossible to automatically uninstall version 5.x through the Windows Control Panel Add/Remove applet.

Meanwhile, on a Windows XP machine, we performed a clean VirusScan 6.0 installation to a location on our E drive. Unfortunately, each time we started Outlook 2000, it generated errors indicating that it couldn't find the McAfee e-mail scanning add-on, although it had been configured to look in the default location on the C drive.

Lastly, HAWK, a module that looks for suspicious activity to detect viruses that McAfee isn't yet aware of, caused Outlook XP to error and shut down when we tried to open several safe, non-infected e-mails.

Judging from past experience, McAfee will probably iron out most of the technical issues and incompatibilities with a series of timely updates.

Like several of the latest McAfee products, VirusScan 6.0 presents users with an HTML-style interface, complete with Forward, Back, and Home buttons. McAfee was aiming for intuitiveness, and truly amateur users might find it. But most Windows users are probably more familiar with conventional pull-down menus and shortcut bars. The page- and shortcut-based interface makes it frustrating to locate options quickly.

But beneath the minor glitches and the ugly interface lies a powerful, comprehensive antivirus program. McAfee VirusScan 6.0 had no trouble detecting and neutralizing dozens of common viruses we threw at it. It offers to take a number of actions upon discovering one: an infected file can be repaired (if possible, depending on the nature of the virus), deleted, ignored, or quarantined, which means it's placed in a special folder that effectively isolates it from the rest of the hard drive.

McAfee's generous feature set and pocketbook-friendly price are both commendable. Its technical issues and goofy interface, however, are not. VirusScan 6.0 is a solid product that probably needed a little more testing before its release, and while it accomplishes what it sets out to do, several competing products serve the same purpose with fewer headaches. --Joel Durham, Jr. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Worked great for me..
After reading these reviews I was a bit surprised at all of the negative ones. The only issue that I had with this product was the internet filter. That was mainly because I couldn't get the control over what would and wouldn't pass the filter that I really wanted. If you want a good Internet Filter/Cookie control/Ad control/Firewall for the internet I would suggest Zone Alarms PRO. I installed this Mcafee version 6 on my Windows XP Dell computer and had absolutely no problems. No freezing, no update issues, no slowing down of my computer. It works great. And it has been able to detect a number of viruses and block them before they got onto my computer. I tried Norton Antivirus and after getting a virus on my computer that Norton would not remove (even after downloading all the latest definition files), I loaded Mcafee and updated it, and it removed all the viruses. The only reason for the 4 instead of the 5 was my disappointment in the Internet Filter that was provided. Otherwise this would have been a 5. I would buy this product again in a heartbeat.

2-0 out of 5 stars Fair protection, No support
I realize customer support is not a profit-maker. So has McAfee. My system was down a week and once I had isolated Security Center as the problem, I wasn't able to speak to anyone whose first language was English. Morons with flow charts, a huge phone bill and I finally figured out (on my own) how to edit the registry additions. Spyware included but subtle.

1-0 out of 5 stars its ...
when my dad bought the virus scanner from a shop it said that we would get FREE UPDATES when they were available. ho hum what happins? cost$$$$$$$$$$ and sometimes we dont have that to spend on stuff that dosen't WORK...... it didn't detect a virus in a email that i myself had, thus causing half of my email contacts to get it and their computer CRASH.....if you read this.....DO NOT BUY THIS VIRUS SCANNER OR PRODUCTS......... GO ELESWHERE TRUST ME.... AND MY FAMILY!!!...

1-0 out of 5 stars Crashed Windows 98 SE; take your chances on a virus
This software bites!! It crashed Windows 98 SE and I was unable to start-up. Only the fact that we have two PCs and I could access the Msoft site for help saved me. McAfee charges for live tech support even on day 1! Now they tell me (via chat) that the work-around is to edit my autoexec.bat file. Just what the average PC owner wants to do. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Mcafee customer support is the WORST. An utter nightmare.
I purchased this software after trying unsuccessfully to download VirusScan Online SIX TIMES. The Mcafee website is so truly awful its scary - to login to their website you have to either delete all of your cookies, or reset your Internet security option in Internet Explorer. Totally unacceptable! Their technical support chatroom staff are totally inexperienced call-center people who enter in pre-written statements that dont answer questions. After I typed in my entire problem, explaining that i could not login and activate my account, the rep responded "Did you login and activate your account?". Totally infuriating. Technical support for Mcafee products is ridiculous. If you want to speak to someone on the phone, its extremely ... if you try to get help through the website, you get no telephone numbers, only directions to use the useless chat feature. Go with NORTON instead! ... Read more
