If truth be told, McAfee AntiVirus/Security couldn't find itself if it had a big arrow over its head, flashing lights and vocal alarms. I used to think Norton (and Norton 360) was the worst thing going, but at least they flag something up even if its just a tracking cookie. You can run McAfee on a clearly infected computer and it'll claim its clean.

The tragic thing is, McAfee used to be THE program to have, many years ago. Now it rarely finds anything, takes all day to do anything and is generally more trouble than its worth.

Free alternatives include such options as AVG and Avast, then there are paid for options such as McAfee, Kapersky, Norton and Panda. I like Panda myself.
