McAfee periodically blocked my America Online (AOL) Browser, Microsoft Internet Explorer Browser and Google Chrome Browser.
McAfee also blocked AOLTopSpeed. This is a web acceleration software designed to speed up your web browsing experience.
AOL Top Speed saves frequently visited web page files in a special local browser cache, which it checks when I visit a web page before seeking out the required files on the AOL Service.
I contacted AOL Live Help every day for more than TWO Weeks!. I was given conflicting information regarding a solution to the issues of the web browsers and AOL TopSpeed.
NONE of these issues were resolved.
I gave up and deleted the McAfee software. My next step was to use the McAfee Removal Tool.
I used the McAfee Removal Tool FIVE Times! The removal tool Failed to remove all traces of McAfee. I received the following error message:
WINERR RegDelete Key()failed. Error: 5
Failed to remove HKCR\file\shellex
I did a web search and tried to delete instances of McAfee. However, there are still traces of McAfee of my machine, which I am finding very difficult to remove.
In conclusion, my experience tells me that McAfee DO NOT offer quality security products.
There's a section under McAfee Firewall to select the option to decide whether to block items. I clicked the no block option, but McAfee still blocked the items. This is simply unacceptable.
I decided to download Norton Internet Security Free 30 Day Trial. I am very impressed with this product!
Norton Internet Security is a total computer security suite protecting from viruses, malware and cyber criminal activity.
It includes continuous live updates, which is one thing less to worry about.
Personally, I would rather pay for a product that keeps my computer safe and running smoothly, then use the one that is free from AOL.
