Eventhough AOL 9.0 has virus protection and spyware capabilities, yeah smack me . . . would you get rid of McAfee? This person's subscription will not run out for a few months.

edit~he only has dialup.

Hi :)

Was just curious why you'd wanna get rid of it?

Some things I have noticed about AOL 9.0 and all the new features are the spyware "protection" is pretty much a joke.
And McAfee seems to hog a lot of resources.

I wouldn't get rid of it except for the resources thing, but I wouldnt go with AOL's, either. He's one of those people who when the computer "recommends" this or that, he'll do it. That's what led me to his house. The McAfee Personal Security was hanging. I just shut it off until I find out what was wrong with it. (missing DLL)

I can understand why you'd wanna check that out.

I had McAfee for years but then it was giving me a lot of trouble. Files got corrupted and Windows would hang at Startup.
I finally got rid of it and went with Norton's.

And as far as the AOL spyware protection, it's better to have the free programs like Ad-Aware and SpyBot.
