McAfee suite download error

I recently had ATT 300 Mbs fiber installed. I activated ActiveArmor within the modem.

I have tried many times to install McAfee Suite on Win 10 PC, get error message that "something went wrong...close page"

Questions:

  1) With ActiveArmor, is McAfee or Norton needed on PC?

  2)What is the issue with McAfee download?

I'm not a fan of any 3rd party security software on Win10.  The built in Windows Security is a match for any of these other suites and has the added advantage of not confusing Windows Updates resulting in a trashed Windows installation.

As far as the free McAfee on AT&T's site.....nobody seems to want to admit the issue.  AT&T blames McAfee and McAfee blames AT&T.  Someone from AT&T will likely pop in here to acknowledge the problem and say they're working on it.....except it's been broken for at least a year.  I don't think it's coming back and it's silly that AT&T would rather live with the shame instead of just removing the links.  But then again, as I said above, no big loss.
