But doesn't anyone with any sense/knowledge avoid McAfee anyway?
Speaking as one who is ill equipped to enter a battle of wits, I must protest on behalf of myself and the rest of the WOODen tops.
We in the World Organization Of Dopes
fail to see why people without sense and/or knowledge in this area should be penalized.
We're the very people most likely to be spooked into turning away in fear from perfectly respectable, legitimate, safe software.
More importantly, we are the most susceptible to inheriting items such as McAfee through slick marketing techniques.
It's also true that this kind of issue emanates from most, if not all, A-V vendors at some point.
Perhaps it's because I've seen a few issues lately, but I have a sense that the problem is increasing.
Maybe it's just that more and more insidious stuff is being released into the wild...?
