I dumped McAfee because it was too expensive and caused me terrible troubles
Went the free AVG and never had troubles with that one.
McAfee must only be installed in NORMAL BOOT MODE
or funny things will happen. I do a bare bones boot for
gaming reasons to clear the WinXP machine of third party junk
running in the background and if I want will go into MSCONFIG and
just enable AVG when I want it to check things. I rarely do a normal boot
or run with a firewall because I do not need everything all the time.

I might add the recovery console is a nice feature to add to your
Windows Boot Options.
You simply install it from your I386 folder either SP1 or SP2
whatever your machine is.

So long as AVG is free for private use that is really the way to go
in combination with what they call Safe Hex (Computing Practice).
