DUMP MCAFEE - JOIN THE HUMAN RACE

LATER TODAY I WILL HAVE A POST ON RUBEN PEÑA

BUT FOR NOW:

I have never liked McAfee, but it was an old friend I became comfortable hating.  Time Warner spent three weeks trying to figure out why my internet was so slow.  We wasted 3 weeks because its technicians loved to lie and just wing it.  They repeatedly told me that it was the house wires, the line coming from the poll.  Problems at the poll and on and on and on.

Well after my 6th complaint to the New York office they finally sent two top supervisors to my home.  I proved to them I had my computer checked and the problem was not my computer.  They then plugged in their own computer and everything was  fine.

A supervisor then noticed I had McAfee for security.  He said they do not know why but a lot of their customers have problems with internet speed if they have McAfee.  I was desperate.  I removed McAfee.  My computer was immediately running at super speeds.  I then installed Norton.  I was shocked with how Norton found tracking cookies on my computer, which McAfee claimed it was controlling.

So here is the story - if you have a slow moving internet and no one can figure it out remove your McAfee and see what happens.  If the problem resolves then you know the problem was McAfee.  But remember you have to then install Norton.

Finally I did try and call McAfee to see if they had a solution.  they did not.  I was endlessly transferred to people who mumble when they speak English.  I was then told they have no technical support outside India.  I then asked for a full refund.  They gave it to me.  My hate relationship with McAfee came to an end.

(which McAfee claimed it was controlling.)

Thanks, Bobby. I got 4 of them, and 3 have Mcafee. Getting rid of them, thanks to you. And guess what, I love the only one with Norton, cause it rules.

Bobby, would Avast! protect my computer as well as Norton?
