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NEW Vulnerability scanner — If your OS and programs are out of date, you could be vulnerable to threats.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.
Block Spam and Dangerous Email
ENHANCED Antispam — All those unwanted emails aren't just annoying. They're dangerous. We'll filter out all the shady stuff to keep you and your inbox protected. And the antispam engine integrates with new technology to make sure the right emails are making it into your inbox.
Keep Your Family Safe
ENHANCED Parental controls — Worried about your kids seeing stuff they shouldn't? Parental controls let you block inappropriate sites with age-based rules and adjustable categories. You can even limit the amount of time they spend online, and print reports for every user you've set up.
Surfing report — Find out what your kids have been up to online through the surfing report. You'll know when they log in, any attempts to access forbidden sites, and how much time they've spent online.
Protect Your Social Network
Safe URL sharing — It's easy to share photos and stories on your favorite social networks and it's also just as easy to share dangerous stuff. McAfee Total Protection software includes tools for safely sharing URLs with friends, so you can stay safe even if your favorite social network gets hacked.
URL shortener—Worried about tweeting dangerous stuff by accident? The new integrated URL shortening tool lets you spread the news safely through updates and tweets that are short and sweet.

Top Customer Reviews
I uninstalled my trial McAfee anti virus software first to avoid conflicts. Installation of the McAfee suite from CD was quick with no problems. Very little impact on my computers performance. I let the system do a full scan and was pleased at how quick it was.
It seems like a small price to pay to protect my computer with a market leading piece of great software. I now have peace of mind that my new laptop is protected against viruses and other nasties.
Only 4 stars because of the hassle in having to remove the trial version first.
As with most Security Suites, you've got on-access protection and scheduled scans. On-access protection simply scans files for threats as and when you try and access them. For example if you access a folder and it contains a virus, as soon as you open the folder McAfee will scan it and if it locates a threat will remove it pretty much instantly making it really difficult to open a virus even for people who are not very confident with their PC.
Scan speeds seem reasonable:
Quick scan: About 8 minutes.
Full scan: A few hours.
I also found that when I switched from Norton to McAfee, McAfee picked up a number of items Norton had simply missed.
The only gripe I have with the description of this feature is the fact that it doesn't seem to pick up a massive amount of malware. If anything it seems to pick up malware after its been installed, but it would be so much easier if it could pick it up before it was on your PC.
For my day job I work providing Tech Support and I must speak to 20+ a day who have malware on their machine and they can be pretty argumentative because they assume McAfee will protect them against malware. Although this will pick up some malware, it misses a lot of programs which cause popups, redirects and inline adverts.
I personally find the best option is to have a program like this installed to protect you against the serious stuff, then have a free malware removal tool such as Malwarebytes or Adwcleaner on hand for if you do inadvertently installed malware.
I would however add that although McAfee's ability to pick-up malware seems slightly limited, I would say it seems more effective at picking up malware than its main rival Norton.Read more ›
Installation can be either via the enclosed CD or direct from the McAfee website. Inserting the CD automatically activates download from the web to ensure the it is fully up to date and upon completion it is registered using the supplied product key. Because my elderly netbook doesn't have a CD/DVD drive, I had to use the direct download method taking about 10 minutes our 12mb broadband line. The installation process generates a serial number which is used should Internet Security need to be reinstalled later.
Customised scans can be set up to scan your PC/laptop at any day/week/month interval you choose. Email and web browsing is protected and there's a spam filter which works well. One of the most useful features is the link scanner which indicates via a green tick symbol whether a site is safe to visit - if a red warning shows then this is advance warning of a potentially virus or malware-ridden address to be avoided, or visited at your peril. Identity and phishing protection isn't part of this package, nor is network protection, whereby a pop-up message alerts the user to any unidentified users logged onto the wireless network - these are included in the 'Total Protection' version but unless you specifically require these features, I feel it is not worth paying extra for options you don't need.Read more ›
