It's subpar in so many ways.
Dell forces you to have McAfee but there is an easy amazing solution.
First, the problem: Dell obviously gets paid to put the obnoxious and ineffective McAffee program on their new computers, hoping you will subscribe. I just bought two new inspirons and was freaked out that a) I had mcafee and b) within ten minutes I was loaded with malware popups which mcafee didn't block. I guess Dell needs the McAfee money.
1. go to control panel/uninstall, and uninstall Mcafee
2. now that you've given Dell the opportunity to use their terrible program and collect the fee, YOUR WINDOWS 7 and 8 HAS A DEFAULT PROGRAM THAT WILL KICK IN WHEN YOU REBOOT. ITS CALLED WINDOWS DEFENDER. ITS AN INCREDIBLE ANTI-VIRUS PROGRAM AND IS FREE.
I couldn't find info on it online but if you go to your action center, you will see that it has kicked in.
I guess microsoft realized that windows computers picked up to many viruses and created this to fight them off.
3. I also installed Malwarebytes. Its a subscription program that got rid of all of the annoying popup malewares that mcafee had not blocked.
So now, with Windows Defender and Malwarebytes (and Mcafee uninstaled, which i've heard carries viruses) my computer is really NEW.
