Cox Communications / free mcafee security suite

Scottsdale, AZ, United States Review updated:

Mclafee security suite provided though dix is garbage. Apparently unfinished and containing bugs. Mine updates several times a day and a pop-up appears in my lower right corner throughout the day stating "your computer is at risk" proceeding, i'm further told, "real time scanning is turned off". Every attempt to turn it on fails as it turns itself off quickly afterward. Mvt is a waste of time. After running it, i'm told I have several unresolved threats and then i'm led to a sales page where i'm offered to purchase their regular security suite. What a joke. Do not get dix internet service if the deciding factor is their free security suite. I am keeping their internet service. It's the fastest most reliable internet service around here regardless of the garbage they peddle along with it or their less than capable customer service department. I found norton 360 is the best security suite available today and worth the price. It is absolutely 1000% superior to the "free" mclaffee junk offered with dix. Once again, "you get what you pay for".

    is your complaint about COX or McAfee? - seems a shame to "complaint label" a company that your happy with. To McAfee FREE yes, you get what you pay for

    DIX decided to promote their internet service with a "FREE" security suite, and further chose McLAfee to provide that service. DIX is the marketeer. DIX peddles the garbage as a benefit to buying their service. DIX.

    How is this Coxs' fault? No one makes you take anything but yourself. You use whatever virsue protection you want. Blame Cox for everything, how rediculous.
