I dont know if this its the correct place to ask.....

I did a search for mcafee virus protection and paid for McAfee total protection 2012 package plus Secure IE

The email arrived from McAfee Protection [] with a link for the download.

I was able to download (tried several times on 2 seperate pcs) Secure IE but not McAfee Total Protection so i emailed asking for help using their link and got a reply from winferno.

Can you please clarify if this is genuine software I have paid for or a scam. I genuinely thought I was buying from McAfee but now it does not actually download and I found a posting on your forums suggesting it was malware.

Re: Winferno

You'd have to contact Winferno support for that as they are a totally separate entity simply acting as a reseller of the software. is not - different company.

SecureIE is not McAfee software but all McAfee suites include at least the free version of SiteAdvisor and the upper ones include SiteAdvisor Live browser protection.

Internet Explore 9 is pretty safe anyway if kept up to date, assuming this is Vista or Windows 7, if XP then IE8 is the highest compatible version.

Personally I wouldn't deal with Winferno as their website is labelled unsafe by several browser safety applications (such as WoT, Web Of Trust) but they are legitimate.
