How McAfee is like Spyware

Spyware:

  • Dialogs that try to trick you into buying something
  • Commonly no close button on dialogs
  • Slows down your machine (CPU/memory hog)
  • Tries to make itself more difficult to uninstall/shut down
  • Somehow a loved one ended up with it on his/her computer.

Hmm, strange. I’m noticing some similarities…
