I have installed Mcafee Total Protection 2014 - 1-year subscription : $89.99 I have used Mcafee for several years. I have downloaded it on 2 laptops and they are running fine. I downloaded Mcafee on my desktop pc and as soon as it was downloaded my computer started to run very slow. Everything from booting up to opening the internet takes a really long time. Even if I right click an icon I have to wait about 25 seconds for the menu to appear and then lets just say I want to open it in a new window or go to the properties of some program. It takes at least a minute or two to load up. I tried last night as I went to bed to run a full system scan and it appeared to be running slow, well when I checked it this morning after 8 hours of running it had only scanned 8%. So I closed it ran my CC cleaner to clean and fix the registry files, cleaned and emptied trash like temp internet files and cookies. Still runs super slow, so right now I am running a popular adware and malware program. The full scan has beed running for a little more than 5 hours it shows 10 malicious files. I am just waiting for it to finish to try more. Either way it goes the pc is extremely slow and it was running just fine before I updated and added the new Mcafee software. My computer is rendered completely useless I dont have the patience or the time to sit and wait forever. I know that two antivirus programs and conflict with each other. I always keep the Mcafee program running all the time and only activate the others when I want to do something in particular, I then shut down any and all other software when Im finished and keep Mcafee running. I have done that for years and had no issues with the 2013 Mcafee while I would do this. Please help as I like Mcafee and want to use it, but if I cant get my pc running I will get rid of it and use something else. I guess I am going to try and uninstall everything and re-install completely next to see if that works. I am at a loss and am really frustrated.
Also, with my purchase I get a BONUS - FREE Registry Power Cleaner Lite! I have not tried this at all yet, have not even downloaded yet as the stuff is running to slow.
