I bought a Dell PC which had McAfee 30 days free trial. When the 30 day trial ended I was invited to buy the anti virus, which I did. This year on the 9th February I had my credit card billed for £49.22. My renewal date was May this year. I sent off an e-mail via the 'reply' option on my e-mail complaining, that my subscription doesn't expire until May and the payment was taken in February and that my card should not have been debited until then. I received no reply, in March I received another e-mail informing me that my Anti virus will run out shortly and that I should renew it now so as not to lose my anti virus and that would lead to my PC would be unprotected. I replied to that email, explaining that I had had the payment taken without my authority, therefore I want my £42.22 refunded and I would buy another companies anti virus. Still no reply. On the 27th May, I was notified that yet another payment had been taken from my credit card by McAfee. I again requested reinstatement of this £64.99. Does anyone have a contact address of McAfee?
in order to sort this matter out. On one of your blogs, someone said that they phoned a number for india. He was reembursed after the phone call. Can he/she contact me here, or by e-mail. Thanking you in anticipation

    For future reference avoid mcafee and norton, they are known resource hogs and impossible to get rid off. Many free options available online. Hope you get your money back.
