Member Spotlight: ConorD62

Posted by April Jacobs May 10, 2011

Welcome to the Community Spotlight blog! This is where you can learn more about Members who contribute regularly, Employees who offer guidance and leadership on behalf of McAfee, and Volunteers who give their time to help customers and enforce the rules.


Thanks for taking the time to learn about your fellow community members. Do you have someone you'd like to recommend for our Community Spotlight? Send me an email at


ConorD62 is a regular participant in the Home and Home Office and Security Awareness areas.


He's been a helpful contributor here for a little over a year now. His posts are always friendly with useful tips and advice. As of the time of this writing, he's posted 520 total messages, earning him the title of Champion!  He's been using McAfee for about two years now, and he's come a long way since joining the community.


Conor is an interesting fellow. If you happen upon a conversation with him, you are likely to find that you have something in common. I don't know much about him, but I know he's familiar with Harry Potter because he has talked about Dumbledore. But is he a fan? I'm curious! (Though I bet he does not have a Dumbledore tattoo like this guy.)


He uses the Google Chrome browser. I've heard good things about Chrome, so now I must check it out to see what all the fuss is about.


He also speaks a little French, and he plays a LOT of football (what we in the U.S. call soccer, you know, the REAL football ).


On behalf of McAfee, thank you for everything you do, Conor! We appreciate you.

We couldn't find a photo of Conor,

but here is a picture of a kitten in a boot.
