Since this is a little bit of a thread necro, let me add a couple notes about Mcafee.

First, it's dramatically better than it used to be in terms of detection. In 2016 I wouldn't have touched it with a 10ft pole, but it's a top performer by most detection tests following their updates in 2018. The price is right with the multiple device coverage, and if you get it for the $5 promo... well all that much nicer.

Updates come out quickly (which isn't the case w/Windows Defender). It's still going to put more of a load on your system than the most efficient products, but it's not the system killing bloatware it used to be by any stretch.

Some data from a trusted test resource: https://www.av-test.org/en/antivirus/home-windows/ 

I hope to do some of my own testing with Mcafee within the next couple months, and I'll post on here when I get that finished up.

We do apologize for any inconvenience, however McAfee is mailed out to you, not emailed. I highly recommend calling in so we can check on the status of voucher and determine the cause of the delay.

Agree. If someone gave me a free 5 years of McAffee, I wouldn't install it.

Use Microsoft's free solution. Google "Microsoft Security Essentials".

McAfee Av is somewhat of a system hog.

Kind of silly waiting for "free" AV. So you put your system in danger waiting for something "free". Microsoft has a free AV that is not just a year subscription. >>>>> http://https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/safety/pc-security/microsoft-security-essentials.aspx


Take control. Also good to start "your own" thread and not post on one several months old.........................

I will call bs on this. I've yet to receive my voucher. Was told (by tech support) i would receive it at the end of 3 separate business days and then told today that it won't be looked at until monday. I wouldn't even be in this situation had the person from tech support had me WIPE both drives because the newly purchased laptop decided to go into a just a moment bootloop on FIRST BOOT. I have been given the run around for 3 straight days and this is beyond ridiculous. I paid for something to be pre-installed on my computer and now i have to wait multiple days to receive.Angry
