Mcafee 8 5i 100 cpu when updating Ypung incst phone chat
The last useful version of norton was norton av 2005. Yes it had its bugs, but mcafee took an extremely long time to fix them.After that year their software just kept getting slower and slower and slower and it expired everyday. As soon as AOL started providing Mc Afee for free with their membership, the thing's quality has exponentially tanked with the amount of people who still can't grasp the concept of "right click". To me mcafee goes through phases and when you think there going to have a great product they destroy it in the end. We were waiting for patches for months and whenever a new one was release it created more bugs.I have Mc Afee that came with a new Dell purchased last year. Then they released v8.5 and destroyed any reputation they had.Protection-wise, it seems to be okay and it has never caused me any trouble. One reason why AV programs become more CPU-intensive and memory-hungry is because they must now deal with threats that they didn't have to years ago.
After that I wrote off mcafee, but norton eventually turned into crap.
Right now, the main thing is to make sure the programs run smoothly on Vista, so in some instances options are limited. They seem to get the crap kicked out of them during tests.
But I'm just a rookie in the PC world compared to some of the vast knowledge on this board.
New computers from Gateway have Mc Afee Internet Security installed on them.
It's been running with a minimum of fuss and bother on Vista Home Premium.
A lot of the doodads in it aren't really necessary for me, and the Spam Protection blocked some valid emails and I wasn't able to access them.
