    Just tried out McAfee VirusScan 2005 after not having used it for a number of years. It may be a wonderful antiviris program and all that happy horsecrap, but the Security Center feature is just plain assinine in my opinion.

    I really don't care to be told every time I reboot and/or run the darn thing that I don't have McAfee's firewall installed, don't have McAfee's antispam installed, don't have McAfee's privacy installed. Do they think I don't know what I have installed? To me, it's a negative approach. "Just tell the paying customer how poorly they are doing at securing their computer because they don't have our full line of apps installed. Even give them a Security Index to remind them further. And best of all, when they update their virus defs, throw in some pop-up ads AGAIN pimping our other products."

    When a person actually starts to RESENT an application, I guess they know it's not right for them :(

    Agreed. Very stupid move on the part of McAfee. Version 7 didn't have this garbage. Course managements believe that they will sell more software with this tactic. I suppose it's working cause they didn't kill the security center with version 9 (2005).

    McAfee corporate edition does not include the security center.

    McAfee 9.0 is a terrific antivirus but I don't like that Security Center splash either... that's why I disabled it! :D

    The splash screen doesn't annoy me as much as being spammed by McAfee trying to pimp their wares, and it's the main reason I won't buy their spammer.

    How do you disable McAfee's Security Center splash screen?

    to this:
    c:\PROGRA~1\\agent\mcagent.exe /nosplash

    That's it! The great antivirus you want without the popup security splash that you don't need!
