I am having trouble using this software on a Windows 7 computer. It constantly logs me out and forces me to login while I am actively using the computer. This causes problems if I am doing something like online schooling etc. It works flawlessly for years on my XP computers before McAfee bought them.  It is not just annoying as it hams up my firefox and I have to go into task manager and stop firefox ( as it is still running but not running ).  I just want it to work like my XP computers. I have contacted support with no success. I have uninstalled and reinstalled with no change.  When I got my Windows 7 computer a couple of years ago I installed this and the log on window looked exactly like the XP but the password and log -in windows didn't line up with the names and gave me the feeling it was a rushed rehash of a XP version. Like I said the reinstall did nothing. I think I cleaned the registry and dumped the folder when I did the reinstall. Anyone else have this problem?
