McAfee has ruined my computer

This crappy software has blocked just about everything on the web - why do they do this - I should be the one deciding what content I veiw - biggest waste of money on the planet - I will ditch this crap today.

JUNK - don't waste your time or money.

Re: McAfee has ruined my computer

Without more information on your operating system, service pack, browser and version, and what McAfee products and versions are involved here it's not easy to suggest what the problem is but I would hazard a guess that you've either got the firewall in lockdown or you are using secure search in SiteAdvisor or your browser settings are non-standard.

Also what other security software was/is still installed?

Re: McAfee has ruined my computer

As stated above in this rather old thread, difficult to help someone when no information is given.

By the way, when switching brands it's wise to run their removal tool before downloading the new stuff.

Keep you system always up to date and hope you enjoy Norton.
