Where can I get opinions on McAfee Clinic?

Question

What are your thoughts and opinions of McAfee "The Clinic" which is a suite of four online services (VirusScan Online, First Aid Online, Oil Change Online, and Uninstaller Online)? I'm currently using "McAfee VirusScan Online" but they are offering a special deal on "The Clinic" which includes the "First Aid Online, Oil Change Online, and Uninstaller Online" services as well.

Please include my home email [email protected], when you respond.

Thanks,

Fred

This question was answered on January 9, 2003. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

I, personally, have no opinion, other than it sounds like something I'm not interested in

I use AVG, a free antivirus program, which has worked for me so far

The uninstaller that either comes with the programs I install, or else the "Add/Remove Programs" utility that comes with Windows has served me well

Thankfully, my PC doesn't burn oil

The idea of Online First Aid is too scary to even think about.

However, running a search on Google, using the words "McAfee Clinic Review" (without the quotation marks) reveals informed opinions galore.

In fact, I find using the word "review" with about any software item, service, book or most other things in a Google search unveils tons of online information from helpful netizens eager to help us lost souls find our way down the Information Superhighway.
