      Get rid of Macafee! Use AVG Free Version for Virus and the XP firewall.

      GET RID OF MACAFEE! and clean out your registry afterwards with RegSupreme.

      Completely agree, I got rid of MacAfee and use XP Firewall (+ router firewall), Windows Defender & free AVG virus & spam.

      Works great for me.

      But make sure you clean out your registry, and anything else MacAfee related. MacAfee is a sly little bugger and there are files and folders hidden all over the place.

      Re: Unable to access Hotmail since joining Sky BB

      I had exactly the same problem when I changed to Sky BB. Every time I went to a site that needed a password the website kept rejecting it saying Incorrect password. By process of elimination it turned out the problem was with Mcafee. Before I joined Sky I was with Virgin BB and had used a version of Mcafee which I had purchased from PC world. When that expired I used the Mcafee which came free with the Sky Disc and that's when the problems started. The fix is simple though. Go to teh front screen of Mcafee and click on the "Support" button on the top right of the page, follow it through and go to online support - you will enter into a text conversation with a technician who will download a Mcafee registry cleaner to your PC. once that is run you can re load mcafee. I did this and I have had no problems since, I was then able to access all websites requiring passwords.

      Firstly, many thanks to all who contributed to this topic. The problem has been resolved by allowing cookies from all. Mcafee is still installed as they wish to continue with the parental control side of it. For me personally I would have chosen differently but it is their choice.
      Once again many thanks to all.
