Just received this as a gift. Have not yet opened the box as I want to investigate it before proceeding. Checks on Net reveal a 3 Stars out of 5 rating. Cannot find anything re installing the software. Am not well versed in Networking and this is for a Desktop and 2 Laptops. Is this installed three times or just the once on the PC where Router is Connected? Would I be any better off changing to this from all the standard protection I have at the moment?Thanks in anticipation

My experiences of McAfee on other peoples' systems has always ranged from underwhelming to downright annoying, particularly when some network configuration is required. I have my favourite firewalls for networking, and my favourite free and premium AVs; McAfee is going to have to improve a lot to match them. I'll take the "Network Security" tag under advisement!
