Hi Cher :

Why would you want to PAY to put the resource-hogging McAfee on your computer
when there are FREE antiVIRUS products that do NOT "Tax" your computer's
resources !? Have heard that AVG antiVIRUS occasionally has serious "Update"
problems; much wiser to put on the Good & Free Avast Antivirus Home Edition from
http://www.avast.com ; it has 7 "Providers/Shields" and EXCELLENT Support forums.

I always wonder WHY someone would recommend the Microsoft "Windows Live Onecare" !?
Microsoft should use whatever is in the "OneCare" to "patch" their Operating System. so
there would be NO NEED for its "use" . Much better to use a 3rd party "scanner", such
as the Good FREE version of "SUPERantispyware" from :
http://www.superantispyware.com .
