Available Features in McAfee Antivirus Plus
McAfee’s virus protection for Windows 7 computers includes a great selection of features designed to keep your PC safe from threats of all kinds.
The VirusScan is the standard antivirus and anti-malware tool, and along with the ability to schedule scans, this module also manages real-time scanning, scanning all actively running programs for threats.
To enhance your Windows firewall, McAfee Antivirus Plus 2010 includes a rule-based firewall component designed to protect your PC from unauthorized incoming and outgoing network activity. The idea of this is to keep your PC and data safe from, for example, sniffer tools such as keystroke loggers, which can be used to record your personal data and transmit it to hackers.
Along with these standard tools, McAfee Antivirus Plus also includes a version of SiteAdvisor to help you to steer clear of suspicious and potentially dangerous websites, Quick Clean to remove old files from your hard disk drive, a Shredder tool to dispose of sensitive data, and the all-important status checking tool to ensure your antivirus software is up to date.
