    Winferno

      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 [order-confirmation@mcafeeprotection.com] 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.

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

            This question came up in an earlier thread. I've nothing new to add to what I said there.
