Release notes and known issues

The McAfee Total Protection 6.1 Beta software runs on Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP Service Pack 3.

Here are the known issues for this Beta release:

• This version of the McAfee Total Protection 6.1 Beta does not support help. Learn more links do not open the WebHelp.
• When you upgrade to the McAfee Total Protection 6.1 Beta your screen resolution must be 1024 x 768 or higher.
• A script error might be displayed after you install the software for the first time. Restart your PC to fix the issue.
• McAfee File Vaults are removed during the upgrade. When prompted with the new security questionaire, complete the following steps:
Copy the contents from C:\Documents & Settings\Administrator\ LocalSettings\Application Data\McAfee Anti-Theft
Paste the copied files to: C:\Documents & Settings\Administrator\ Local Settings\Application Data\McAfee File Lock
Open McAfee Vault from My Computer or open McAfee File Lock from the McAfee Secure Centre Home Page

-----------------------------

A personal note from me to Windows 8 RTM users:
The McAfee installer disables Windows Defender as usual.
DO NOT on any account re-enable Windows Defender in Windows 8 RTM as that particular version contains an Anti-Virus component and will interfere with McAfee.
(Windows Defender has changed from what was included in earlier beta versions of the OS and incorporates elements of Microsoft Security Essentials).

That's just the front, I bet there is going to be a lot more settings hidden like the old version.

Important note for users who keep their My Documents folder on the D:\ drive of their computer:
If you use the Windows Add/Remove Programs feature (Programs and Features in Windows 7) to remove McAfee Total Protection 5.0 Beta from your computer, your My Documents folder is deleted. You must use the McAfee Consumer Product Removal tool to successfully remove the software.
Now you should understand: Use at your own risk.

It looks the best now than it has in several years(UI is almost competitive with other products). Though in the big picture it is all still smoke and mirrors as the product itself is far below my standards.
