First I have talked on the phone 5 times and 3 letters. I'm being harassed by having to talk about the same issue over and over. Syed in customer support is a sadist who continually wants to spin this problem in his direction to avoid a refund. I have a crushing migraine as I write this. I...

Avast / Payment fraud

AvastAvast is an internet security program that I have used for a few years.

I was laid off and to ensure I was not billed further for any extraneous charges from any...

McAfee / Livesafe

Reviewer93373 on Feb 12, 2016
This product is the worst, I cannot even download the anti virus protection. The activation code is not being accepted. I bought it at wal-mart and I have been trying to activate it with no luck.
