New UI

I switched my machine on today, and McAfee is now displaying the new (blue) interface.

SecurityCenter is now at 16.1.160

The strange thing is nothing downloaded. And nothing other than definitions have been downloaded since McAfee Internet Security 16.0.1 was downloaded on the 16th of June. In fact that is what is showing in the 'Uninstall Programs' area in the Windows Control Panel. So, how has 16.1.160 appeared on my machine!?!

Also, a gripe about the new interface. Where have the up and down buttons gone above and below the scroll bar? Scrolling down through, say, all the programs I have set permissions for through the firewall is now a nightmare as dragging the scroll bar with the mouse is nowhere near as precise or easy as using the down button. This needs to be sorted out as it greatly affects functionality!

Re: New UI

The product updates silently so the change crept in without you noticing.   It takes quite a bit of getting used to.  In my case I had to alter myu graphics card control panel settings as I had the page too bright.

With areas that have a scroll bar at the right (See illustration - click to enlarge) just hover over the area and use your scroll wheel or pad.

"just hover over the area and use your scroll wheel or pad."

Still far more tricky, jerky and less precise than using the down button.

I like to check through my firewall permissions list every now and again, and now doing this is a jerky, imprecise nightmare........

I agree it's not perfect.  I find it quite a strain on my eyesight.

Re: New UI

And even worse considering the scroll area is so narrow and only displays 3 items of the list. Like being blinkered.

Maybe someone ought to send the UI design team away to do a basic HCI module at their local college!

Re: New UI

I don't particularly like it either.

All their new products are following this design and I think someone didn't give much thought to it's usability & readability.

Go to Product Ideas and suggest changes:
