I've gad my Dell Dimension for about a year with no problems. I have McAfee's security Center on it to protect against viruses and spyware. However, over the last two weeks, the computer is running extremely slow, I've had to manually close applicaions thru task manager and that dosen't work sometimes so all I'm left with is to reboot. Can anyone provide assistance? Thanks.
Hello, i have had this problem with my dell, and believe it or not, it is probably your mcafee. Your mcafee could be using most of your processor and your ram, i suggest to reinstall mcafee, look at some upgrades for ram (Random Acess Memory), or buy a new anti virus/anti spyware. Such as eset,norton,zone alarm, and many others.I hope that this helped you!

McAfee is widely used in computers, laptops, mobile phones and other electronic devices. Easy to install these anti-viruses provide extensive security against malware, spyware and Trojans threats.If you have encountered any of the error then contact us immediately at our McAfee technician.
Can you add your McAfee to the notebook or is it for only one PC? Although isolated, it still must send/receive radio waves to collect the data, and WiFi are not known for their security compared to Ethernet. If I were in your position, it would be worthwhile for the extra protection. It may never happen to be hacked by someone wandering by, but if you rely on that bandwidth, you certainly don't want it stolen.
The Windows Firewall is different from MCafee Security Centre. And if it has a X on it that means Ur MCafee Protection is disabled or May be expired.
To Check that, Just click on the MCafee Icon on the desktop or on the botton right hand corner, and check if its disabled or u needs to renew it.
Your Tech Support,
Every time you install an application on your computer, it is communicating with a remote center, in your case with McAfee Security Center. In order to be able to do so, it installs a small widget on your computer, to identify your settings and login information by the remote server. It is possible that somebody hacked into your computer while somehow your protection was down, and made a copy of the cookies. As a matter of fact it is possible that the intruder got acces to your registration data with Mc Afee and it is using illegaly your personal keycode.
Suggestion: - write or call McAfee and explain them all the situation and ask for a new keycode.
2. Expired licence
Usually the licence for anti-virus or other software applications, provided together with an electronic equipment, have a promo quality first of all. As a matter of fact, the duration of a licence is for a limited period of time.
Suggestion: - check if there exists any data related to licence expiration date
3. Limited number of install attempts
Some software providers are using the system of limited number of installs, especially if the software is acquired as a promo package with an IT&C equipment.
Suggestion: - check when you install the software if in the agreement is specified something about limited number of install attempts
I hope some of the info I provided may be useful to you. If you have any questions, please dont hesitate to contact me.
