      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      All bells & whistles that a complete internet security program should have but short on performance

      Virus, worms, trojans, adware, spyware and other malaware are part of my worklife. So I try out as many antivirus programs as possible and most often in combinations to get rid of these malawares. Recently McAfee came out with its 2012 edition internet security antivirus program. McAfee is described on their own website as a wholly owned subsidiary of Intel Corporation and the world's largest dedicated security company. So it is well understood that when they come out with antivirus programs why software guys like us are inclined almost instinctly to give it a try. They are in fact one of the biggest names in anti-malaware programs.

      FEATURES

      As mentioned earlier it is a very feature rich program. There is hardly anything that McAfee has not included in this anti-malaware including features that do not normally form part of an anti-malaware like parental control.

      It has got the usual Anti-virus, Anti-spyware, and Anti-malware that scans your computer including emails and web content to block and kill dangerous emails, risky websites, viruses, trojans, spyware and rootkits.

      It comes with Real-time Protection that prevents suspicious stuff entering your computer.

      It has a Layered Firewall that not only prevents malicious software entering your computer but also prevent any personal information going leaking out of the computer.

      It has the usual Safe Search and Shop feature giving information on the safety of a particular site with respect to whether there is a possibility of any malicious code, phishing or spamming happening.

      It also posseses a Data Shredder to destroy any sensitive files permanently from the computer so that it cannot be retreived by anyone who could lay hands on the computer, a feature particularly helpful when you are likely to sell the computer at any time.

      It comes with botnet blocking ability. Botnets are normally web addresses that attempt to steal your personal information by connecting to your computer masquerading as normal sites.

      Other features are more for like systems care like PC Tune-up (remove clutter like unused applications, cached browser files, and other junk) and Anti-Spam.

      Besides it does have the mandatory prescan and USB and Removable Drive Scan.

      Surfing Report is an interesting feature that shows date and time when you logged onto internet, the computers attempting accessing prevented sites, total time spent online and also who is online when.

      It also offers 1GB Online Backup which is definitely a bonus to back up essential files in case of a mishap to the computer.

      COMPUTER OPERATING SYSTEM SUPPORTED

      It supports Windows XP (32-bit) with Service Pack 3 (SP3) or higher, Windows Vista (32-bit and 64-bit) with Service Pack 1 (SP1) or higher and Windows 7 (32-bit and 64-bit) with Service Pack 1 (SP1.

      BROWSERS SUPPORTED

      It supports Microsoft Internet Explorer 7.0 or higher, Mozilla Firefox 3.5 or higher and Google Chrome 6 or highe.

      EMAIL SUPPORTED

      It supports POP3 - Windows Mail, Microsoft Outlook Express, Microsoft Outlook, Netscape, IncrediMail and Thunderbird, MAPI - Outlook and Web email account with POP3 acces.

      USER INTERFACE

      The icons are cartoon like and the interface very user-friendly.

      PERFORMANCE

      The proof of the pudding is in the eating the saying goes. For anti-malaware, the proof of the performance in the number of virus it catches and prevents from attacking the computer. Sadly, McAfee does not live upto expectations because it let in many amny virus which were subsequently caught by Defender and Kaspersky anti malaware.

      Moreover, it prevented some perfectly good softwares what we call as 'false positives'.
      So it would be ok for persons who are computer or internet savvy and recognise the 'false positives'. Also
      it is not for persons indulging in visiting high risk internet sites.

      It does have all other features that a robust internet security suite will have like two way firewall, parental control and others as mentioned above but it does lack a Rescue CD to reboot the computer after a particularly nasty virus attack that has locked out the computer.

      FINAL WORD

      Despite having all the bells and whistles that a complete internet security program should have it falls behind where the performance really matters - preventing malaware from getting into the computer. There are others that are better at this price range.
