I think the most annoying thing about McAfee is that it auto-deletes my tools from my flash drive (the false positive detection is pretty high). Most of the virus removals that I do here at the shop have McAfee virus "protection."
For example, someone brings me their infected computer. They are running McAfee and are plagued by your usual trojan fake-alert virus. I'll plug in my flash drive to run a few utilities that I like to use to begin the cleaning process, and all of a sudden my tools are gone because McAfee saved me from my evil tools! Why not delete the virus while you're at it, geniuses?
I just thought I'd share that. Any thoughts?
If something is deleted by mistake that means VirusScan considers it a risk. It can be reinstated from the Quarantined items section of SecurityCenter once VirusScan has been temporarily disabled and then you can report the false finding to McAfee.

Better to be safe than sorry.
