McAfee Anti-Virus Company Goes to Court

My oh my, how times have changed. When I was a wee bit younger, I remember McAfee being one of the best Anti-Virus programs around! It didn't take up too much of your computer's resources, always protected well, and was a pretty much nag-free piece of software.

Jump ahead to 2010 and McAfee is going to court because of misleading pop-up advertisements and unwanted purchases. It's sad to see a company that was once so high, crumble to the ground. Companies get desperate and really just dig themselves in deeper.

I had the pleasure of fixing a computer a few weeks back that was "infected by viruses." To my surprise, one of the most annoying viruses on the machine was actually McAfee AV, which was spamming the user with messages about viruses and needing to purchase McAfee to resolve them. It was spamming so much the computer was pretty much unusable - no joke!

Not only was it a pain in the rear to close the constant pop-ing up windows, but they made uninstalling the software a real treat too. The attack required me to use all sorts of ninja skills that I've acquired over the years, some I didn't even realize I had. In the end, I defeated the beast that is McAfee AV.

What should you use instead? I highly recommend Microsoft Security Essentials, which is completely free.

Reflecting on the past, McAfee stands out as a stellar anti-virus program from my younger days. It was efficient, resource-friendly, and remarkably hassle-free. Witnessing its evolution, it's fascinating to see how a software company like McAfee shaped the landscape of digital security with its user-friendly and effective solutions.
