John McAfee, the eccentric 67-year-old pioneer of computer antivirus software, is wanted for questioning about the slaying of a neighbor in Belize, police said Monday.

McAfee is a "person of interest" in the killing of American expatriate, Gregory Faull, who was shot and killed Saturday night at his home on the island of Ambergris Caye, a police spokesman said.

USA TODAY

He was arrested for unlicensed drug manufacturing and illegal firearms.

This is horrible.

Hey everyone I'm Allen (Also known as VinylScratch on IRC) I help people with their computer problems.
Please if I give instructions to a thread poster and you're are not him do not follow my instructions please do not follow them, but instead start up your own thread asking for help if you have the same issue.
This is because everyone's problem is different and you could seriously damage your computer by following instructions not given to you.
  Also yes I am a Brony.

Another reason you shouldn't use McAfee products,

In fairness to McAfee (the company), John McAfee has not owned an interest in McAfee, Inc. for about 20 years (and there are better reasons to avoid McAfee AV.)

He may have killed something other than the performance of all the computers McAfee is installed on.

Looks like he also ignored the annoying pop ups and forgot to renew his protection. By not renewing his service he got re infected for a second time with the police.
