Hallo there, resident furball here...
A year ago, I bought a boxed version of McAfee VirusScan Plus 2008, which has recently been auto-upgraded to VS+2009 (3-user licence).
I'm due to renew my subscription at the end of November 2008, and pottered onto the McAfee site to see how much this would cost me.
Shock-horror - the cost of *renewing* a product is identical to buying it off the shelf again! Surely not?! I've been with McAfee since v2, and it's always costed me around £10 to renew VirusScan for another year. Is there something seriously fishy here, or is the pricing for *renewal* of an existing licence really £45?
VS+ is also the same price as the full Internet Security Suite (which I don't need), so there's something odd here.
Can anyone clear this up for us? Admittedly, my previous versions were 1-user boxes, but surely we existing users shouldn't be paying the same amount as new users?
