McAfee AntiVirus Plus is one of the leading computer protection programs on the market. It serves to protect you from and remove threats of Trojans, rootkits, malware, and more. In addition to protecting the threats that come with web browsing, the program also features defenses from attacks that come via e-mail, enables you to ‘shred’ data that you don’t want falling into the wrong hands, features a defragmenter, and includes a mechanism for deleting junk files. Best of all, your computer will not slow down because you have the program running.
The interface is unique among programs of its kind. Even those who have used earlier McAfee AntiVirus programs may suffer from a bit of a learning curve that programs like this one don’t usually have. Once you get used to it, though, you could well find that you prefer it to those that you have used in the past. You can quickly and easily check the status of your computer’s security and choose among three different scans, Quick, Full, and Custom. One drawback, though, is that the simplicity of its interface, while highlighting certain commonly used features, can make some of its most compelling features more difficult to locate for new users.
