I thought mcafee decided the best way to combat virus' was to brick computers using their software. Why continue wasting money on research like this when they had a good thing going?

the whole damn internet is a pot of malware, no matter what word you type, somehow you will get infected if you are not careful

My malware list : (top of the list)
Norton and McAffee
Main reasons :
-Expensive.
-Resource heavy consuming and will make a system a lot slower than it should.
-Persistence during uninstallation (needs lots of manual removal).
-Reliable protection? Not really!

I see you can't think outside your little box. People are stupid, they think they're getting "Free" music. I recently scanned a system where half the music was infected with a virus. And there's a whole lot more of them than you.

This is like the news I saw last month about scientists discovering that eating more vegetables and less sweets makes a person less likely to develop diabetes, obvious but inserted in the news to inform stupid people of these facts.
