I've generally just had bad service with McAfee's products.

I go to update Adobe flash and I have to specifically select not installing McAfee. I go to upgrade Java and I specifically not install McAfee. I just want them to go away.

I can't condone boycotting 7-11 for many reasons.
1)They invented to-go coffee cups. Ergo, they are gods.
2)They invented a computerized inventory system that actually tracks and predicts what products are used/will be used. This is a remarkably simple idea but to this day, most retailers don't use it. Ergo, they are gods.
3)Puking corn dogs, buritos and slurpees is a one of a kind experience. I wouldn't want to deny future generations this thrill.
4)Personal preference.
5)Alien encounters.

I also find that annoying. However, I blame Adobe/Java for that, not McAfee.

I've hated McAfee since 2000...
Their goddamn software was practically a virus in and of itself...
Minimized my full screen games to tell me that my virus definitions were out of date and that I should renew my subscription (which I never had in the first place).
Couldn't turn off reminders - could only set the reminder to remind me a maximum of 90 days later.
Fucking garbage.
Oh and it burned a lot of processing power just because.
Renewed yet infused with apathy.
Let's just have a good time, all right?
