    I'm trying for 30 minutes to order and it stays about 15 minutes to load one single page. It's very busy. :(

    EDIT: I got " HTTP/1.1 500 Server Error" :D

    That’s what I though in beginning. Apparently, it’s legit. Keep in mind Best Buy offer them with huge discount:
    VirusScan Plus 2007 = $2
    Internet Security Suite 2007 = $6
    Protection Plus 2007 = $3

    Maybe Mcafee is trying to get new customers to try 2007 version.

    It took one hour but I got it :thumb: McAfee Total Protection 2007

    I did have to pay shipping $5.48 but for a $79.00 program I can handle that small amount

    Hi, folks: Free and excellent programs are very hard to come by these days. I may want to jump on the wagon. However, I do remember McAfee's 2007 lineups have a major bug; fortunately it has been fixed lately. I do wonder these free copies are PRE or POST pathed products. Could buy.com tell us?

    I really doubt if they could tell you what the version is except what is printed on the box. this offer is good from 09/26/06 till 09/30/06

    Does any of these retailers ship to Europe?
    Because Buy.com does not.

    I got suckerd into getting "free" MacAfee. It was not worth getting.
    Don't, get McAfee unless the problem described in http://forums.mcafeehelp.com/viewtopic.php?t=76180&view=previous&sid=9928a331836af6a9d346e04707caeddb has been fixed.

    Most, if not all, online retailers in the USA do not ship internationally.
    Especially for security related products.
