Windows 10 and Plusnet Protect

With Windows 10 release date of 29th July fast approaching and a number
of my devices registered to receive the free update to Windows 10 on that date
can someone from plusnet respond to indicate that a version of Plusnet Protect
will be available to download that is compatable with Windows 10.
Having tested all releases of the Insider preview for Windows 10 to date I
can report that Plusnet Protect available at this time does not install or work on these
previews.

Re: Windows 10 and Plusnet Protect

I don't know BUT given that McAfee won't be going for a supported full release on August 13th I think that the answer is no chance

Re: Windows 10 and Plusnet Protect

Any updates on when / if PlusNet protect will work on Windows 10?
Got a new laptop here, which I immediately upgraded to 10. The pre-installed McAfee was running OK, but the trial period has now expired.  PlusNet protect installer is hanging after serial number entry.
If support is coming soon I'll install a different trial as a stop gap.

Do yourself a favour and uninstall McAfee and forget about Plusnet Protect,
This is much superiour and free.

Or just use built in Windows Defender, no need to mess about with anything else.

Windows Defender worse than McAfee but better than nothing
