That link only allows you to sign on if you have a bellsouth.net email address ... what about att.net and others?

I'am trying to do the above steps to install the free McAfee internet security. But after a few steps I get to a page were it says " Please select the service you are attempting to access" and I'am not sure where to go from there.

hi again bunner!

you may not be able to download the software today. it looks like the download server for the att iss by mcafee is down. i also tried to download it on my other computer, got nothing.

btw, did you get the same " Please select the service you are attempting to access" message when you went to the att.software.yahoo.com site?

You can download Spybot Search & Destroy < http://www.safer-networking.org/en/index.html >and/or Malware Bytes < http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html?part=dl-10804572&subj=d... >. AVG FREE < http://free.avg.com/download-avg-anti-virus-free-edition?cmpid=fr_bn_free_670 > is a good, stable, low overhead anti-virus program. They have regular automatic updates, and it protects IE & system settings. I've been using this heady cocktail of FREE computer protection for several years & it has been VERY effective. My wallet likes it too!

Re: Free Internet Security Tool from AT&T

It isn't free to all extreme subscribers. If you are running windows vista 64 bit, the software will not download. Only you wont find that out until you go through the trouble of uploading it to your hardrive first. No one at bell south seems to know where or when this will be addressed if ever. my guess is they will wait for windows 7 . I find it very unfair and i think i will be looking for a new internet service provider, there goes another cable convert (maybe).

Re: Free Internet Security Tool from AT&T

so true...i have it on my windows xp for 1 computer but took it off to download to my windows vista 64 bit & it says only for windows vista 32 bit but on one of the forums it says for windows vista 32 or 64 bit so what's the deal AT&T? i may also be looking for new internet service because AT&T customer service for internet really is soooooooooooo bad can't get an answer for anything you need help on.
