McAfee AntiVirus Plus 2011 Review
McAfee's base virus protection program offers some extras that most basic packages don't, such as a firewall and home network monitoring. It does an excellent job of protecting a clean PC but isn't the best at cleaning up an already-infected PC; it can be tricky to install.
McAfee has enjoyed a loyal customer base for many years and is one of the most recognized names in security software. McAfee AntiVirus Plus 2011 reviews on Amazon indicate it's popular with users, many of whom say they like how well the program works, describing it as fast and user friendly. Other McAfee AntiVirus Plus 2011 reviews, however, counter that updates are inadequate and McAfee spam ads are irritating; one user says it's a decent virus protector but is likely to miss unusual specimens. Some McAfee AntiVirus Plus 2011 reviews on Amazon also report problems installing the software and users posting on Buy.com complain about slow scans and overall operation. Experts at PC Magazine like the extra features, such as a firewall and home network monitoring. This product review also reports that McAfee AntiVirus Plus 2011 is adept at blocking the vast majority of malware threats as well as suspect web sites, but cleanup doesn't remove all traces of an attack. In short, it does a better job protecting a clean PC than it does mopping up the mess of an infected PC.
McAfee AntiVirus Plus 2011 includes a couple of features not normally included in a basic antivirus program, such as a firewall, a shredder tool that completely removes files, and a cleanup tool that removes leftover files that can hurt the performance of your PC. This cheap virus protection software also lets you share the program with two other PCs, for a total of three users.
McAfee Antivirus Plus 2011 is a good-enough antivirus program that comes with some nice extras. It will do an acceptable, but not the best, job of protecting your PC.
