The deterioration of Symantec and McAfee products continues. Seems like every week I solve someone’s problem by uninstalling a Norton product. (This week a client’s outgoing e-mail was suddenly blocked, with an incomprehensible error message. After flailing away for a while, everything went back to normal after turning off NAV’s outgoing mail check.)

Here’s the final review by PC Magazine of McAfee’s new Total Protection suite. Conclusion: “Unfortunately, more is only better if it works, and far too much of the (suite) either doesn’t work or may actively harm your system.”
