      The most reliable antivirus on the market though not so user friendly

      With so many top brand name antivirus solutions out there it can be difficult to choose wich one to go for. Aswell as the classic brand names such as Norton and Mcafee there are also newer brands being released such as Kaspersky and Avast, some of which are just as reliable if not more. However, unlike most other security programs Mcafee VirusScan gives the user full advanced control over everything and the option to configure it any way you want.

      Admittedly, the upgradable security centre you are issued with runs rather slowly and is fairly difficult to navigate around which is a small price to pay for being so secure and in full control. Mcafee release updates very regularly, usually every day or two, which keeps you up to date with the latest threats and you can read information about the latest viruses discovered. Some past updates have included definitions for fourteen different viruses all in one update!

      Mcafee Virusscan also uses heuristic scanning, which identifies unknown viruses by monitoring their behaviour then alerts you if any files on your system are behaving potentially dangerously. Mcafee also provide you with several free tools if you are having difficult problems such as the Mcafee Virtual Technician and the Mcafee Stinger Rootkit Revealer. For anyone looking for a reliable antivirus with extra back up tools then Mcafee Virusscan is the best solution.

        Mcafee, so good you have to have it

        This came free with my PC and what a bargain. Mcafee are, in my opinion, far better than Norton Anti-virus. The user face is so simple and easy to use, even my dad can use it, (and he is not good with computers). I have never had a virus on my laptop, and, after seeing their effects on my home PC, I never want one again, and with Mcafee I feel safe that I wont. With weekly updates on virus definitions, software updates and many more, Mcafee really does give you your moneys worth with its virus protection.
        There are a few downsides, for one, the scans do slow up your computer, but only very slightly, and far less than Norton Anti-virus. Also their constant alerts and messages can become annoying, but that can easily be solved through the options given to you by Mcafee. I would definitely suggest Mcafee above everything else. Its affordable, reliable, easy to use and will protect your computer very well. A well worth purchase.
