Excerpt: Mcafee have been out and about now for years, the package it's self is a very good one compared to most of the market. However although it does it's job, its very expensive compared to the mass of other packages available on the market and slows your machine down that much that you have to consider ditching it.
Excerpt: As a long time user of ZoneAlarm I was reluctant to try anything else as I had never had any problems with ZoneAlarm until Vista came along and then the clashes started. So, having had McAfee Virus Scan Plus 2008 recommended to me I decided to give it a try and I am fairly happy that I did. The package is reasonably priced for what it is and the whole installation process is easy to follow and complete, even for complete beginners.
A decent suite suitable for all bar the most discerning users

Excerpt: Mcafee Virusscan Plus 2008 is a good improvement on earlier versions of the product.It continues to use "the bootstrap method" of downloading code to your pc and then installing it module by module.The security centre is the first thing that is downloaded and modules are added to it depending on what you have purchased.
Excerpt: First excuse me for writing a lengthy review, but there are a lot of ground to cover. For those who like the short version, with less information is here: Norton slowed my DSL connection by a third party. I spent a day with Verizon, could not understand why all my other machines on the network received 756k, which has a maximum of only 4 or 500. Norton removed, and bingo, instant 756k.
Excerpt: A really good product. McAfee excels in the antivirus market. This product offers six in one solution, not only will it look after the PC's security needs. It will do things like defrag your hard disk. Which is required I do it once every three months to keep the hard disk in tip top shape. This product has features that you won't find with Norton. Some of the ones I like. No more messages from security management when I am playing full screen movies or videos.
The most reliable antivirus on the market though not so user friendly
23 January 2008
Excerpt: 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.
Excerpt: 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.
