McAfee Antivirus Plus 2015 Review

McAfee Antivirus Plus 2015 is one of the strongest and safest antivirus software suites out there. In many tests it outperformed other top competitors in usability, protection and performance. The program is pretty lean in terms of CPU load. A full scan takes a bit over 22 minutes and the software doesn’t consume more than 1% of resources at that time.

Unlike some other security suites that have an overwhelming number of features McAfee concentrates on the ones that are really necessary. The program includes a two-way firewall called NetGuard, which monitors traffic in and out of your computer. It detects potential hackers and blocks them before they can harm you. It also warns you about suspicious links in web pages and prevents you from downloading malicious software. Its parental control tools let you set a schedule for when your kids can and cannot surf the internet and block certain websites and apps.

Another great feature is QuickClean, which cleans out temporary files and helps your computer run more efficiently. Lastly, the software’s identity theft protection gives you $1 million of ID theft coverage.

McAfee offers a good technical support with video tutorials, FAQ pages and chat. You can also call them to get person to person help. The only downside is that you have to pay extra to have their tech support service on hand. However, you can always try to solve the problem on your own with the help of some online guides.
