McAfee Antivirus Review

McAfee is a long-time player in the field of antivirus. The company was founded in the year 1988. is also known for its firewall antispam, file encryption, and public key infrastructure product lines. It is most well-known, however, for its anti-virus software and holds a strong position on the market. Its security suites provide comprehensive protection against malware and viruses, and are backed up by a $1,000,000 guarantee against identity theft.

All of McAfee’s plans include a fully-featured malware scanner that will block the entry of malware into your computer system and kill or block the malware that have already penetrated it. The real-time protection engine of McAfee is designed to stop malware files from downloading and additionally, it reroutes and secures data to ensure that your online activity is not hacked or used against you.

McAfee scored consistently high in our tests, both the AV Test 0-day test as well as our malware protection test. It also scored 100 percent on our privacy tests.

The interface of the suite is simple and clean. It’s a little hard to access features such as parental controls or identity theft protections. The dashboard is separated into separate menus. Help is a bit difficult. The McAfee community forum is active, but you’ll need Techmaster Concierge to get help for more complex issues.

The only major disappointment was that McAfee’s system scan failed to remove junk files on our test systems. It doesn’t permit users to drag and drop a file or folder into the suite to be scanned as does many competitors. This is a major no-no in a security suite at this price.
