    Why Is McAfee The Security Partner Of Dell?

    Hello Everybody, At first when I brought my Dell Inspiron it came with a trail version of McAfee Security Centre. At that time I found that I should uninstall it and buy a Quick Heal Total Security 2013 and I installed it on my system.

    Till now it is working very good but I am thinking that why would A company like Dell would make their whole Security partner on McAfee. If McAfee isn't a good Antivirus then why are dell sticking to it? they could make Quick Heal as their Security Partner.

    Is McAfee A good Antivirus company at all? Or does the users buy this by only seeing the Intel trademark?

    I can't understand this....

McAfee LiveSafe ?
