I stumpled across this https://www.wilderssecurity.com/threads/mcafee-2017-15-1.388941/page-2 back in December. Now, over one month later, i still have that old ugly and heavy Total Security Software (15.3) on my Computer. Tried to download it manual, but all i get is a shiny new installer and the same old (and ugly) Total Security installed. WHEN will we get the new Version? Why is McAfee always so slow?
Do not worry even we mods have not seen it yet, They/McAfee were rolling it out but stopped due to an installer issue and rolled it back to 14.0.r11 or 12. This included the new GUI. It will come soon i feel.
I have 15.1 but a beta install as I am a beta admin/member but is is on the old GUI..
!5.1 is as the FAQ of the wilders security site you linked to showed a lighter faster scanner but many manual options removed. Some options ie scheduled scan may return in Qtr2 or so.
Colleague Peacekeeper is quite correct, it was randomly slowly throttled out end of December but is now being enhanced. It is indeed due to hopefully be available soon. However, the (GUI) and description you seen in the ' Wilder.s Security ' thread.
Is referring to the (McAfee Cloud AV product) not the 15.1.R0/15.1.156 Version/Build. It is entirely different than the Full Featured Suites. Please see here; new LAM ( Lightweight anyimalware) install FAQs
There is one user (gery) showing a Screenshot from Total Protection. So i guess we have to wait another year until they get it working.
I was just curious why i get the shiny new installer, but the old product installed... and another day, i got the old installer and of course, the old version installed. Oh well, McAfee is not what it used to be. Might be time to change, after 12 years of using it...
Trust me..I feel that it will be out in short order. Definitely no where near being a (Year). We discuss this regularly on our weekly Conference Calls. People have to realize that when software has a change in it, it has to have a proof of concept. then has to be tested (In-House) before it is released (Globally) for the Customer base, to ensure quality.
It has been mentioned that it may be available as soon as the end of February.
As I am running the (New) Version/Build 15.1.R0, and not experiencing any issues. I feel comfortable with that (ETA) mentioned.
Until then you are properly protected.
