The mac version displays a progress bar, a "number of items scanned/number of threats detected", and a "currently scanning file:" field. None of these ever get updated. It appears that the intent was to give progress status like the Windows product does, but nothing ever happens. The user either STOPS the scan or it completes, but none of the fields changes while it is running. In addition rerunning the scan after a previous one is STOPed or finished doesn't erase the results of the pr …

The most annoying omission is the Quarantine list is missing the Threat Name field which would give the user some hope of identifying whether he should delete or restore the quarantine file. But other features like quick scan, the vulnerability scanner, etc... would be nice to have.

Let user know that by making "secure search" your browser's default search, that you are using YAHOO, not the one you may have set as the default (like GOOGLE, or BING). It switches to Yahoo and does not make Google a "secure search." By not telling the user this, it is an omission that can lead to wasted time trying to figure out what happened.

In common with most other antispam tools, you can of course easily mark emails as spam - however, one trick which is missing, is the ability to share those emails which you manually mark as spam (or not as spam) with the rest of the community. It would be nice if items manually marked as spam (or not as spam) could be reported back to a central database, so that it would improve the spam detection rate for all users - ie. the email address used, and any links contained with the email would be …

With so many phishing emails in circulation nowadays, it would be nice to be able to right click on a link in an email and (a) check whether the link has been identified as dubious, and (b) report the actual link (not the text obviously) to SiteAdvisor as a bad link (or for testing). This would make it easier to quickly identify and protect people from phishing websites and dubious links.

Can McAfee add a location service to it's products such as All Access and LiveSafe so that all installed devices, not just mobile devices, can be located on a map. This is especially helpful for laptops that may be stolen. Computer theft in increasing and costing consumers billions of dollars total every year. No matter how good your security software is, it is useless if it can not help locate your stolen device or have the ability to lock and wipe it. McAfee has this service for mobile devices …

Yes…McAfee consumes loads of machine resources Real-Time scanning Windows Updates, predominantly the Win 8 family and many high CPU and disk usage problems can likely be attributed to this as Win updates are running in the background. Not only does this increase vulnerability by significantly delaying the updates, but it stalls the machine and frustrates customers trying to do their work. Many may Restart in an effort to free things up, but only end up creating a vicious cycle. McAfee should …

Like other Applications, the user is made aware of the changes made in the most recent Version/Build released.For example we know t …

It appears anyone can mark any post as “Helpful Answer” and it shows up as part of the OP which surely leads others to believe the OP author marked it that way. Can anyone mark “Answered” as well (I’m not willing to test)? Shouldn’t the thread author be the one deciding these things? Seems like a very good way to intentionally or even unintentionally highjack threads to me and cause misunderstandings about the topic and author too.
