McAfee Total Protection 2013
5 October 2009
Conclusion: McAfee Total Protection 2013 includes every feature found in McAfee Internet Security 2013, plus some bonuses that would cost quite a bit more if purchased separately. Its SiteAdvisor Live toolbar is a definite cut above the basic SiteAdvisor. At just $10 more, it's definitely a better deal than the mid-range suite.
Pros: File Lock encryption protects sensitive files. Network map can mark known intruders. Best phishing detection. SiteAdvisor Live marks dangerous links in search results and social pages. Secure sharing and shortening of links. Spam filter handles all email types. Parental control handles HTTPS. Online backup.
Cons: Difficult install on infested test systems. So-so malware removal in PCMag's and independent tests. Limited parental control can't handle Administrator accounts. Surprising impact on system performance.
