McAfee causing issues?

8 posts in this topic

Is anyone else having issues getting to the forum? I'm able to get in via my Andriod tablet, but my PC chokes. I can get as far as the landing page, then the SiteAdvisor from MaCafee sends me into never never land.

 

Current version of MaCafee, Windows 10, Chrome

 

It's very hard to type on this tiny keyboard with Trollfairy hands and a large Maine Coon who wants to help.

It sounds like you need to go into your McAfee site manager and list this as a trusted site.

I had that same problem on my phone, deleted McAfee. No more problem. It just started Friday, so I suspect a badly designed "upgrade" is to blame. McAfee has always been third rate anyway.

If you are looking for quality AV, then I suggest Kapersky. They are continually rated one of the best out there. If you do not like them, then I suggest checking out www.av-comparatives.org, which is a website that runs thorough tests on many different AV suites and then rates performance on all kinds of different areas(heuristics, file detection, false positives, etc).

McAfee is garbage and has been for quite some time. So is Symantec (what used to be Norton).

I second the Kaspersky recommend. Get McAfee off your system. It is practically a virus in and of itself.
