too many issues, poor customer service, Member tecco13

Had problems with program not being able to remove threats. Some features turn off and are unable to be reset. Calls to customer service have long wait times. Poor understanding of product by customer service agents. No idea about MAC version at all need to move to next level who is unavailable by phone, they have to email you.
