If you are already infected it does little things.
If a file is suspicious it is not a thread. (They try to fix that)
A descent but not good virus recognition percent.
Not one of the top's. It's known because many manufacturers pre-install it.

McAfee is very basic and a very bad anti-virus. You better download AVG Antivirus, or buy the Norton or Kaspersky.

Agreed with igdesigner. I totally dislike McAfee. Here's the thing though, it seems to have great deals with hardware manufacturers and gets it loaded "for free". it came for free with my Toshiba Ultrabook last year, and it was the first software I deleted. It's always in my way. I wouldn't say Kaspersky is the ultimate, but it works for me. I've got Kasperksy on my home computer and my Toshiba laptop.

We have - start - using and testing 360safe.com. they say that it have 3 detections engines bla bla bla. I don't promote it or saying that it is good, we are still in research but you can give it a try. It is free and does not requires much memory. If you use it please tell me your feedback.

My parent's computer came with McAfee but it soon expired so I installed Avast because I have heard it is good. I'm not too fond of the ads though. :undecided:

I would certainly agree to the bad anti-virus program. I have fixed a number of 'broken' computers by removing McAfee virus. I use the Microsoft malware suite, works quite well. And I DO go where I wish and look at what makes me curious.
