Introduction:
We would like to give you an overview of Winferno which should be helpful in establishing our reputation. Winferno was founded in 2002. We are a Boston-based company with 25 employees. Winferno's mission is to create easy-to-use yet powerful software that cleans and optimizes your PC (Registry Power Cleaner 2013), protects your privacy (PC Confidential 2013), protects your identity (ID Confidential 2013), and compresses your files (SnapZip 2013). We have a long-term partnership with McAfee (thirteen years). We sell McAfee products on mcafeeprotection.com in the US and in select international markets-with full approval by McAfee. McAfee also sells our Winferno software in North America and abroad. We believe the quality of our products is validated by the fact that Winferno is the only 3rd party software offered by McAfee in their home user online store http://home.mcafee.com/store/.

McAfee are selling a product (your Registry cleaner power cleaner) they themselves detect Adware in.
See VirusTotal and Herd Protect
Would I get this same adware if I bought a copy of McAfee Internet Security 2016 from you?
Thanks for bringing this to my attention, I have left an appropriate comment on their scorecard.

Maybe I'm searching incorrectly. I went to hxxp://www.mcafee.com/apps/partners/channel/find/default.aspx, and tried searching using "mcafeeprotection.com", using the "http:\\" and without, and got the response "No Partners matched your selection criteria. Please select again." I tried using "winferno.com", and got the same thing. Of course, I did use North America and USA for Region/Country, Is there another part of the world I should have selected?

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We will contact VirusTotal to request that the False Positives be removed from our program. They are not adware. They are safe and secure.
You don't automatically get Registry Power Cleaner added to your cart when purchasing McAfee software.

Thank you for your question. Winferno Software is an Authorized Dealer for McAfee products. We have been reselling McAfee products since 2002. When the purchase is made on Mcafeeprotection.com (Winferno Software's site) you are redirected to McAfee.com directly to download the software (you can see it from the url).

McAfee support has confirmed that Winferno Software is an authorized reseller and partner. It would be nice if McAfee's automated search tool worked, but they did get back with me after a day.
