When I did double click it, I remember getting a standard windows dialog box. I believe it said the path did not exist or shortcut unavailable..

McAfee aced a Windows PC performance impact test, are you surprised? - PC Gamer

In earlier days, I used to test and review internet security suites for Maximum PC, usually in the form of annual roundups. During that time, I witnessed firsthand a concerted effort by major AV makers to optimize their software to have less of a performance impact on PCs. It worked for Norton, but not quite as well for McAfee in my experience. I've been out of the loop for several years (in terms of hands on testing), and to my surprise, an independent testing lab found McAfee to be one of the least performance-robbing AV programs among a modest group evaluated.

AV-Comparatives rounded up 17 different security solutions, including both full-fledged internet security suites and regular antivirus programs (including some free options). It then ran a series of performance tests, including file copying, archiving and unpacking files, installing and uninstalling applications, launching programs, downloading files, browsing websites, and running PCMark 10.
