AOL is making the news yet again for dropping Kaspersky’s rebranded anti-virus tool (which was free for anyone to download and use) not because it’s one of the stupidest decisions they ever made (we covered that here already) but because their inferior replacement for it, McAfee, is only available to AOL members.
News Flash, everyone…
You’re not missing much without it. There’s truckloads of user testaments to the fact that McAfee doesn’t even work. AOL is doing everyone a favor by denying all but their unvalued members access to the crappiest antivirus software on the face of the Earth (besides Norton, the #1 most hulking, overblown behemoth of antivirus tools).
Even if you have all the money in the world to blow on antivirus software, disable what you’re using and try AVG instead…after all, saving money and still having a quality product work hard to protect your computer is a good thing, right?
