He was nuts anyway and was facing extradition and knew he likely would have been in worse trouble.

I'm surprised they didn't change the name of the product to MADAFEE then.

Some people are wired differently for sure!  It worked for him for quite awhile.  I didn't even know he was in Spain.  The last interview I saw with him, he was in Belize hanging out with some underage local female.

I haven't been using McAfee on my computers.  I wouldn't use, and recommend using Norton, and McAfee because I've found they can cause problems, and issues including slowing down computers.

It sucks!  Norton sucks!  WAY TOO BLOATED!  I use antivirus included with Windows, Super antispyware free and Malware bytes free.

There are plenty of good, free options.  No need to pay for what you can get for free.

I've already seen one meme that said,

McAfee Didn't Kill Himself.
