I'm having troubles, with Mcafee installing itself without asking, chewing up every last ounce of my computer's resources, even though I end the Mcafee process it automatically starts itself again, and I cannot uninstall it even with administrator rights. I get the funny feeling that Mcafee IS a virus. The only reason I have this "anti-virus" program, is because my school required it. After this experience I will never again use Mcafee, I will never recommend it, and I will recommend against this virus spawning program.
Ever since I installed the program I've had problems with it slowing my computer on startup. It used to take about 30 seconds or so on startup, but now it'll take anywhere from 3 -5 minutes to completely load my desktop. At first I thought it was maybe a virus, but nothing showed up and the problem started after I installed the software in the beginning of Oct. I also have a copy of ESET Nod32 antivirus. I haven't made any changes to hardware on this computer.
