Why McAfee Viruscan is a bad antivirus software
I'm looking for a good antivirus software for a windows machine. One of my options was McAfee Viruscan. I tried to enter their online store, but instead of getting to the store I got "Incompatible browser" notice and an invitation to download Microsoft Internet Explorer. I contacted their customer support team. To their defense, it is quick and offers a live chat with a human representative. From the representative I learned that McAfee probably will not support anything but IE in the near future, and what is worse, if you are using a different browser you would not be protected by McAfee Viruscan. Therefore I can conclude without any shade of a doubt that McAfee Viruscan is a bad antivirus software.
