Last October I updated my internet service with Shaw and at that time McAfee somehow showed up and I was told that it was free and a good service. Even though I had Norton and had just renewed it I left it as is and had both. All was well until a week ago when a message from McAfee popped up saying I should sign up for the better protection for only $39.99 a year, which I stupidly did. Then the problems started, all kinds of ads popping up, computer slowing down and unable to play certain games.
I ended up getting a reputable computer technician to come in and as soon as he saw McAfee I was told that was my problem and apparently he has come across others who have experienced the same thing. I immediately got him to remove it all together. I am disappointed that Shaw would recommend such a company who appear not to be very reputable. Shame on Shaw.
