According to the last Real-World protection test Mcafee is not that bad at all, but yes, I understand you completely :D

Looking in the system requirements, this looks like a really old version(the product box looks like it says "Virus Scan Plus 2009"). Unless you are running Win 2000, XP(SP1 or higher) or Vista(SP 1 or higher), it would have compatibility issues if installed(if it even installed to begin with).

Even the Datasheet applies to VirusScan Plus 2009, so thanks for the heads up.

McAfee doesn't use web installers, or do they?

And they also.
in fact, download button takes you to the page where you can create new account and get 6 month license

The box cover has the same design as the 2011 version(at least it is Windows 7 compatible). If this is the case, do you know if this is upgradable to the latest product version?

Don't look at the boxes anymore :D
I have just created and activated the new account, downloaded the online installer [4.8mb] and it's the same online installer found on cnet and softpedia for McAfee Antivirus Plus 2013, i went trough installation process and stopped when they asked to enter mail and password of my McAfee account (because I already have antivirus installed on my PC).

I personally think that there is no key for activating the product, just enter the same mail and password when you were creating an account on the giveaway page above, as they said that version I am downloading is valid until 4/1/2014.

Thanks for the info, I wasn't sure if McAfee used an online installer or not.

You are welcome :D

I still didn't complete the installation so I am not 100% sure but if anyone test it, let us know

I absolutely appreciate things you share. But when it comes to McAfee I have an old grudge. It came with my newly bought laptop and it was the worst experience with a security app ever. I hope you did not misunderstand me.:)

Don't worry I didn't. I have just shared my opinion.
On the internet, the misunderstandings are a common thing, that's why I prefer discussion live and not virtually. And of course, every other thing :)

I have tried McAfee IS once, couple of years ago, and I didn't like it, for me it was too heavy, but that didn't stop me to share it now. Maybe someone is a fan of McAfee. For every problem that I have or a discussion I want to lead I have a specific section of a forum. Everything should be organized well and the system will work well, that's my point of view.
Have a nice day ams963 :)

For those who are still condemning this product ......

I agree with you that when John McAfee owned this product what started out as a good product eventually just downright sucked, believe me I had my own nightmares using it years ago. But you need to know that McAfee has been under new ownership (intel) for some time now and deserves a renewed chance. Intel plans on renaming this product and removing the McAfee association all together in the near future.

What I am saying is ....

Have you tried it lately? if not, maybe you should before you condemn it.

As my father always said ..... if your not 100% sure about what you are talking about, it's best to say nothing at all.
