      Re: McAfee Security Suite 2007

      There was an article in Computer Shopper titled "The great Anti-Virus rip off".
      I have used Kaspersky for a couple of years now and find it the best i have ever used, no performance issues.

      Take a look at the links below for a similar report, the figures are almost identical finding that the FREE version of Grisoft's AVG beats McAfee and Norton.

      IMO McAfee and Norton are the biggest con but have best marketing so thats what everone gets and is dupped into renewing their licence at the end of the free trial.

      And as for uninstalling these products, they can be a nightmare!!

      Well I have used Norton in the past and now I'm using McAfee. But both of these I got free, Norton with the computer and McAfee with Sky. Obviously there will be those that are better than others but I honestly don't feel I need industrial strength protection from an anti-virus software in the home. If your vigilant when using the internet the chances of you coming across malicious files in my opinion and based on my own experience is quite rare. Also I found Norton 2006 quite easy to unistall, infact it was as simple as going to Add/Remove Programs and then running a registry cleaner afterwards, which I do after I unistall any software.

      If you log into the Sky Portal with your username and password then go to the help section tab. McAffee starts near the top of the page

      NEW - How can I upgrade to the 2007 versions of McAfee security?

      - If you already have McAfee Internet Security Suite with your Sky Broadband, look out for a McAfee Upgrade Alert popping up on your computer in April 2007 - click on the upgrade alert, and this will guide you through the upgrade process.
      Or, if you don't already have it installed:

      NEW - How can I install McAfee Security Suite 2007 for my PC, and start my free years subscription?
      If you have already installed your Sky Broadband and Sky wireless router, you can download McAfee Internet Security Suite directly here for PC users only:

      Download the McAfee Internet Security Suite
      The portal is located at Sky Broadband - Home

      Re: McAfee Security Suite 2007

      Hey!...Thanks got it.

      But I am having trouble registering it! I installed it, I go to check updates and then it comes up saying that I have to register. I click next on the register page and then it said enter your details to register it, I did that and then when I click Next it freezes on me! It just goes blank and stays like that! :@ Help Me Please!

      I have included 2 screenshots!

      Re: McAfee Security Suite 2007

      I can't help with that I'm afraid. I installed the older version off the supplied, Sky disc and then upgraded through that. Don't suppose you have the original disc?

      Perhaps someone else has installed it off the Sky portal and can help further??


      I think a lot of people may be using them as coasters
