McAfee is a virus!

After the initial 30 day period ran out, I decided not to go with McAfee but to get another virus program.  Now, I get about 10 warnings a minute from McAfee, and McAfee has destroyed hundreds of my files.  I don't have a virus according to two other anti virus programs. MCAFEE IS THE VIRUS.

Re: McAfee is a virus!

Hi @AbnerT,

Greetings From McAfee.

We are really sorry for the inconvenience caused.

You see some unwanted pop-up messages that appear to come from McAfee, but which do not originate from McAfee. These messages are 'spoofed' (fake) messages that pretend to be from McAfee and try to make you click one of their options.

Kindly follow the below article to resolve the issue. Feel free to reach out our consumer support team for any assistance.

I know what you mean this disgusting bloatware that comes preloaded on my new computer is total garbage.  Constant popups, no way to uninstall.  This trash software should be illegal.
