Operating System: Windows 10
Antivirus version: McAfee LiveSafe
Installing McAfee is very easy and done in a few quick steps. It took me approximately 10 minutes from start to finish.
Unlike Norton Security' installation, McAfee is up-to-date as soon as it's installed, and doesn't require you to perform additional manual updates.
McAfee will download the installation files to your computer before installing the software.
After a short while McAfee will begin installing the files that were downloaded to your computer.
When the installation is finished, you can choose whether to send or not to send usage reports to McAfee (anonymously).
Unlike other AV brands, it seems that McAfee don't use this to improve protection, but rather to improve their own software. If that wasn't the case, I'd opt in, but since it's only for the company's benefit and not for improving security, I prefer to opt out.
The next screen will prompt that the installation is complete, and you can finish the process. After you click "Finish" the software will activate.
Once the software initiates, you can create a password to access all the security features your plan offers in one place on the web.
That's it! McAfee is now installed, and as I mentioned before, the virus definitions are already up to date so there's no need for you to update it immediately.
From this point you're completely protected to the best of McAfee's abilities.
If at any point during the first 30 days you're not pleased with McAfee, you can get your money back.
