The Anonymous Widower

Bloody McAffe

I have been trying to get this machine to work properly for months.  For instance, I was trying to get Google as the default search engine and no matter what I tried, it never got installed.  Eventually I gave up and someone came and diagnosed the problem as a broken McAfee virus protection.  I’d thought this might be the problem, but although I tried many times to remove McAfee from my computer, I’d never succeeded. With great difficulty the engineer eventually removed it and now I’ve got a working machine again.

So now I’m going to install ClamWin, which works so well on my laptop.

  1. I dont like McAfee either, and when I helped my dad, then 81, to buy a computer it came with McAfee on it for three years. I know he has had lots of problems with it, not helped by the fact that he is old and it is his first computer. I use AVG, have done for years, and since I know use the internet a great deal, I now use their paid version.

  2. The problem appeared to be that when the subscription expired, it didn’t let me completely remove the software. This then made the machine unusable for some reason.
