22 March 2011

McAfee Internet Security 2005 7.0

PC Magazine
10 August 2009
  • Conclusion: McAfee Internet Security combines an excellent antivirus tool with a good firewall and so-so antispam module. Unless you've already chosen one or more standalone utilities from McAfee, we'd recommend Norton Internet Security 2005 instead.
  • Pros: Excellent antivirus features. Firewall traces intrusions on a world map. Parental control can limit each user's access times.
  • Cons: Firewall won't protect against "leak test" attacks, antispam accuracy is still not great. Parental-control accounts are separate from Windows log on.

McAfee Internet Security 2004

PC Magazine
9 August 2009
  • Excerpt: Antispyware tools are just one part of McAfee Internet Security 2004, a comprehensive suite that includes an antivirus scanner, antispam capabilities, a personal firewall, and more. But despite its wide focus, McAfee has not skimped on the individual components; the suite's spyware scanner is one of the better tools we tested, and it's one of only a handful of apps that successfully detected at least one of the three key loggers we had installed in testing (none caught...

McAfee Internet Security 5.0

PC Magazine
9 August 2009
  • Excerpt: Network Associates Technology's McAfee Internet Security 5.0 is a suite of products that contains not only McAfee Firewall 4.0 ($29.99 alone) but also McAfee VirusScan Home Edition 7, the company's antivirus application, and a host of other useful tools, including an ad blocker, parental controls, a cookie filter, and a browsing-history shredder. The suite is more comprehensive than Symantec's Norton Internet Security 2003 but not as easy to use.

McAfee Internet Security 4.0

PC Magazine
7 August 2009
  • Excerpt: Though it includes many strong features, its clumsy interface, control shortcomings, and instability prevent McAfee Internet Security 4.0 from earning our wholehearted endorsement. In addition to McAfee Firewall 3.0, this suite includes McAfee VirusScan 6, parental filtering, ad blocking, a shredder, and several privacy tools, such as a cookie blocker. McAfee focuses on ease of use and a simple, streamlined process for the first-timer.

Langsam aber sicher: McAfee Internet Security Suite 2006

CNET
21 November 2005
  • Summary: Die McAfee Internet Security Suite 2006 bringt ein gut bestücktes Arsenal gegen bösartigen Code mit, ist aber viel zu langsam. Treue McAfee-Nutzer sollten aufgrund der automatischen Spyware- und Phishing-Blocker auf diese Version aktualisieren.
  • Pros: automatische Spyware-Blockierung, Anti-Phishing-Plugin für den Internet Explorer, Unterdrückung von Pop-up-Meldungen im Vollbildmodus
  • Cons: langsame System-Scans, Verlangsamung des ganzes Systems
