    Sick

    [bitch session]

    how in hell's name can you people that use it put up with it?
    it eats resources like crazy....it bogs down the PC on shutdowns....
    and before anyone pipes in with some bullshit....yes it's McAffee doing it
    we run McAffee at work, on every workstation, and they all do the same
    I mean, WTF? everyone complains about Norton/Symantec AV and how much resource it uses,
    my guess is they haven't tried McAffee

    I'm glad this is a test box that's going to Linux soon (like, tonight)
    I woulda kicked my own ass for installing this on my main system

    A forum I belong to used to sensor Mc*f**. If you were caught spelling it out. You were warned. You had to use *s for the vowels. They stopped doing it. I thought it was a good idea.

    this kinda sucks more........
    the proggy doesn't look too bad,
    it locks you out of the interweb until you enter a p/w
    the spyware scanner is fairly fast, 3 mins 41 secs on thorough setting
    (at least on a half-ass fresh install of Win2k Pro)

    it just....fucking.....bogs the system down
    wonder what this would run like on an XP box?
    you ran yours on XP, peat?
    cause it's the same formula at work
    McAfee + Win2k Pro = boggishness

    @fkdup74, I think if more people took their hand off the keyboard and placed it on thier dick, then waited two minuets we would be a better place .
