This review is from: McAfee Total Protection 2014 - 3 User - 1 Year (PC) (CD-ROM)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Works great. I am heavy Internet user and as an IT Pro I visit many sites so have a higher chance of visiting malware-infested web pages. McAfee has been able to detect different types of malware such as Trojans and Rootkits. I have completely cleaned diseased USB Sticks. Detection rates are decent and so far it has been able to clean what it has detected.
On other computers I am running Bit Defender Total Protection, G Data IS and ESET Smart Security. I find McAfee TP is lighter on resources and comes second after ESET Smart Security which is the lightest if Windows Task Manager could be relied upon as it shows RAM and CPU usage in Windows 8.1. The Firewall is very effective as have to unblock even genuine traffic on my Local Area Network.
McAfee replaced Kaspersky and I was unsure McAfee will do as good as Kaspersky, as I last used McAfee some 6 years ago but been using Kaspersky since 2010.
The Interface is nice and easy to navigate. I will stick with McAfee if at renewal time, Amazon will have a special offer. Its £25 on Amazon but a whooping £69.99 on the McAfee Website. Airlines usually make and honour a promise that if you find their fare cheaper elsewhere as compared to their official website, they will refund the difference, wonder why McAfee and other Vendors allow such price disparities!
At £25, it is basically a steal.
