Today I noticed I have some kind of new McAfee Version. McAfee did not inform me or ask permission. So how do I make sure this is not malware but really McAfee ?
It seems legit though and I have the feeling it is kust bad software and not malware. But I did install Norton Security Software, just to be sure until I find a way to confirm this is indeed McAfee.
It seems dodgy because the information is confusing. For instance, it lists Scanned Files Activity up to April 9. But it is only March !
Also this new version seems very insecure because I used to have 1 insecure connection a week blocked. And now suddenly it is thousands a day.
Also confusing is that the Shredder States to be Switched ON , but nowhere can it be switched OFF
I would like to go back to the previous safe version. Is that possible ?
I did try to find out what version this is. But a Version Number is nowhere to be found.
This is what the screen looks like Site removed as link rated dangerous pk
For now I have installed Norton instead and disabled this McAfee program
Please advice what my options are
Having 2 Anti-Virus Applications running at the same time, leaves you vulnerable to infections. As they both clash with each other. Especially Norton/Symantec products. I can assure you if your McAfee Upgraded to the latest current version, it is not Malware or *Bad Software*.
Te version is found in the about tab. Found bottom right in old interface or account tab new blue one. 15.1 is shown in first piece of info.
Thanks peace keeper.
Since McAfee has not informed me about this new version (apparently they do not want their customers to keep an eye on security) I decided the delete McAfee.
Our IT Department will get me some different software tomorrow. I am not sure what brand they will install.
They do not need to inform everyone patches and upgrades are installed automatically. 100 million emails would clog things and who beleives emails they can be spoofed. A popup can be faked so really unsure what Mcafee could have done. Sorry you leaving.
So even after repeated attempts to ease your concerns, you are electing to choose another Security Software? If that is indeed the case, can we kindly consider this thread Answered, and lock it?
All the Best
