  • Conclusion: These are areas for McAfee and Intel to focus upon in the future, if the combined company wants its security suite to be competitive with the best in the field. All other tools to one side (and they are good ones here, mind you), your computer’s antivirus software is your front line of defense...
  • Pros: Balanced range and depth of tools, Very good protection from malware attacks
  • Cons: Poor-to-moderate removal of malware, Text-only interface and product help system, No centralized location to make all settings changes

  • Conclusion: McAfee Total Protection 2012 offers a huge array of security-relevant features, among them file encryption, shredding, intruder detection, and more. Its spam filter is accurate and parental control is much improved. However, its essential antivirus protection doesn't measure up to the very best.
  • Pros: Firewall minimizes popups, blocks access to dangerous sites. SiteAdvisor Live creates safe links for sharing. Very accurate spam filtering. Network intrusion alerts. Improved parental control. File encryption.
  • Cons: Poor malware removal, especially rootkits. Average malware blocking. Poor scores in dynamic tests by independent antivirus labs.
