Product Description

People want to enjoy the benefits of connecting, surfing, and shopping online and don't want to think about security risks. At McAfee, we live and breathe digital security, relentlessly working to stay several steps ahead of the bad guys. Every second of every day, we focus on one thing: keeping your digital life safe, so that you can surf, shop, and socialize online with confidence.

Fend Off Viruses and Malware
NEW High-performance scanning engine — We built our next-generation scanning engine to guard your PC from the latest viruses, Trojans, spyware, rootkits, and other threats, all without seriously compromising battery life or slowing your PC down.
ENHANCED Safe searching and shopping — With color-coded icons next to every search result, including popular social networking sites, you'll know if the site you're about to visit is safe.
ENHANCED Digital data message — including the location of the blocked IP address and what makes the connection unsafe.
NEW Home screen — Got a touch-friendly device? Our new home screen is built with your fingers in mind. And it still works great with a track pad or mouse, so navigating to common security tasks is a breeze—on any device.
ENHANCED Security reports — We've redesigned the security report to bring you the information you need in visually interesting ways. The new report includes relevant images and links for an easier-to-understand snapshot of what's going on in the world of security.
NEW Vulnerability scanner — If your OS and programs are out of date, you could be vulnerable to threats. The new vulnerability scanner checks your PC for missing updates, and then recommends solutions to keep you safe.
NEW Malicious ads and popup protection — Websites don't always have control over the ads they display. Sometimes, you might find a risky ad on a site you trust every day. McAfee automatically blocks suspect malicious ads to keep you protected.

System Requirements:
  • Supported OS: Windows 8   Windows 7   Windows Vista   Windows XP   
  • Processor: 1 GB

According to independent
McAfee is worse than free offerings from Avira and Panda. Yet they have fooled the world with good marketing

1 Bitdefender Internet Security
2 Kaspersky Internet Security - as good but more expensive
3 Avira Internet Security - And the FREE edition is good but without the firewall
4 F-Secure Internet Security
5 G Data Internet Security
6 Panda Cloud Antivirus FREE 2.3 no firewall in FREE Edition
7 Trend Micro Titanium Maximum Security
8 Microworld Escan Antivirus Security Suite
9 Symantec Norton Internet Security - BAD for the biggest company
10 Qihoo: 360 Internet Security 4.2
11 Bullguard Internet Security 14
12 McAfee Internet Security - owned by Intel but worse than Avira and Panda FREE Editions!
13 Eset Smart Security
14 Comodo Internet Security
15 AVG Internet Security and FREE Edition

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful Security Package! 25 Sept. 2013
By S. Miah
My laptop specification is;
AMD A8 2.0GHz Quad Core
750GB Hard Drive

McAfee took a while to install and the entire security package is awful. Will slow PC/Laptop down guaranteed! This is what runs in the background;
McAfee On-Access Scanner Service 73.5MB
McAfee Core Firewall Service 1.4MB
McAfee Process Validation Service 2.9MB
McAfee Security Center 21.2MB
McAfee Service Host (6) 6.2MB
So in total is will be using around 100MB - 150MB or even higher probably.

Detection rate is not all that. There are far better security packages out there.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mcafee Antivirus 2013 1 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase
It was okay, a bit slow though. Download software speeds purchase process up, no waiting around for post. Does funny things sometimes, like jamming up, at the end of a scan.
