McAfee AntiVirus Plus - Virus scan software

McAfee, Inc

McAfee anti virus software is known the world over, so it’s not surprising that their new McAfee AntiVirus Plus 2010 is so lauded and trusted. This new antivirus software has been given a new interface which now matches its new name. Previously known as the McAfee VirusScan Plus, the new interface streamlines the complex tools used and gives the computer complete internet protection.

This new McAfee software is engineered to be eight times faster than the previous edition which means it takes up less memory in the computer and runs faster than any previous version of the McAfee antivirus software. It’s also easy to use and comes with clear explanations of all its features.

Because relying on the traditional security updates is not enough anymore, McAfee Active Protection™ technology has been added to take care of the thousands of new viruses created every day. After the program is installed it continues to update itself to stay ahead of all new viruses released almost daily. This exclusive feature can instantly analyze and block new and up-and-coming threats in milliseconds so there’s never a gap in protection.

There are various other features that put the McAfee AntiVirus Plus 2010 above other programs, including the improved real-time protection, the enhanced graphical user interface, a greatly improved instant messaging filter and security, the integration of a more efficient firewall, and a completely revamped email security to make it much more secure than previous versions. It also has an anti-phishing feature which warns against giving personal information to unsolicited websites, a two-way firewall protection securing both incoming and outgoing traffic from the computer, a website rating to warn the user against accessing insure websites, a shredder to eradicate confidential information from the personal computer, and a stealth mode to conceal the computer from unwanted intruders.
