McAfee renews MSN Premium contract

Posted by David Hunter at 9:30 PM ET.

Michael Paige at MarketWatch reports:

McAfee Inc.’s stock rose as much as 3.4% on Monday after the company said it renewed a pact with Microsoft Corp. to provide online security to subscribers of the software giant’s MSN Premium Internet service.

The extension of the pact originally inked in 2003, while unlikely to dramatically shift McAfee’s revenue, did help remove an overhang on the stock due to uncertainty lingering about its renewal. It also provided a lift to sentiment among some investors concerned about the impact of Microsoft’s own security plans on partners.

More by following the link and in the McAfee press release. In case you aren’t familiar with MSN Premium:

MSN Premium gives you hundreds of dollars of software for a single monthly rateā€”and since it is a subscription service, you will always have up-to-date versions of important programs like Virus Guard and Firewall. While you could try to reproduce the benefits of MSN Premium in a piecemeal fashion by buying individual programs, MSN Premium gives you a single, all-in-one Internet software solution that provides essential online security, productivity, and educational features.

Currently it’s $9.95 per month.

    My McAfee icon constantly tells me my
    software is highly out of date, I am running version 10 and McAfee is on Version 12. I have MSN Premium which includes McAfee Security, why has it not been upgraded?
    Thank you for your assistance.

    Hi Leeland. I just came across your question from 2007 about why your Mcafee security had not been upgraded. I’ve recently started getting the same messages and slow service. I can’t figure it out. Did you ever get an answer? What did you have to do?
