ED Magedson – Founder
McAfee, Inc.3965 Freedom Circle Santa Clara, California United States of America
I have a PC and a laptop. They each have McAfee factory installed. My PC's McAfee anti-virus software is supposed to automatically update every year. One day I received a message through my McAfee anti-virus program that my laptop was using an unauthorized version of the software (I assumed that McAfee somehow got my laptop and PC confused). The program wouldn't work until I paid for two additional licenses. They refused to give me a refund. On many occasions, the McAfee software will begin scanning or doing some kind of critical update while I'm in the middle of a very important project. Today, McAfee started and repeated a scan continously for over an hour, interfering with my workflow. McAfee is behaving like the very computer viruses it is intended to stop.
