Over a decade ago McAffee was famous for bricking Windows Systems as well, I recommended every company to remove it to avoid conflicts/problems.McAfee has been a substandard AV for over a decade.
There have been a few positive test results recently... so maybe they are finally turning it around.
But 'the turnaround' has been speculated on for over a decade. And CrapAfee has remained pretty bad.
We shall see.
