McAfee is GARBAGE!(comcast)

Recommended Posts

I started a new job 'bout 6 months ago, and immediately I noticed the McAfee 'V' shield in the toolbar - eech! But anyway, corporate policy and all that .. who was I to argue as a new employee.

 

I put up with it for a while, but after numerous virus hits (through a so-called corporate firewall !??!?) - msiupdate32.exe to name but one !

I had enough of a f***in' virus that can shut down my (so-called) anti-virus software and infect me (and my colleagues through my network shares), I installed Avira AntiVir (my trusted & highly recomended AV software [since dumping another bloater - Norton]) - I'm now probably facing getting fired for installing external software - but yea, i've got my counter-suit ready :rolleyes:

 

But I could not work with the crap that it was letting through - although on the plus side McAdidly-dee did tell me about certain viruses soon ('bout 1hr) after anything else spotted them (and only if I managed to get it restarted - version 8.5 does not seem to allow manual restart)

 

That said I think I may have salvaged my job after another 5+ machines died & I had saved mine using a combination of Avira / HijackThis / safe-mode !

 

Think it is the first time I may ever got a freeware tool mentioned in a board-meeting !

Nice one :) though the company will be seriously annoied that they have paid expensive subscriptions to Mcafee and could have done it cheeply (Avir/AVG/Nod32) and a few freeware tools :lol:

 

Mcafee Works if it was Mario

AntiVir's free version however isn't licensed for business usage, it's for personal usage only. ;)
