McAfee Virusscan is, for me, one of the best antivirus programs on the market.
I have been using it for more than 8 years in my home's computer, and I have never had a virus on it until now.
The only virus I had one time was on my office laptop where I run Trend's Antivirus, and it didn't recognize it (Trend was updated daily). After that, I instaled McAfee and it detected the virus inmediately and removed it without any problem.
Another thing that I like about McAfee is that it does not use so many resources like other Antivirus Programs like Panda. If you have Panda Antivirus and you don't have a powerfull computer, everything works very slow. It doesn't happend with McAfee.
You can update McAffe through Internet. You ave at least one or two updates every week, so you are allways protected against every new virus. When a new risky virus appears, mcafee ussually have a tool soon to remove it.
So, if you one to be protected from malicius programs like virus, trojans, etc., don't hesitate, McAfee is a very good option.
