Advantages and Disadvantages of Mcafee


Though according to the anti-virus comparatives, McAfee anti-virus rates highly amongst virus scanners in terms of available features, McAfee also have some advantages and disadvantages.

Advantages: - McAfee Antivirus includes many features at decent prices. The protection level is decent enough for most users.

Updates are provided regularly, so that your protection software has the most recent updated virus database in order to provide protection from newly added malicious codes and viruses, and the entire updating and maintenance process happens in the background, without the need for user intervention or interference with the tasks on the computer.

Another advantage of McAfee Antivirus is its simple interface, which gives you quick access to all features. You can easily access its user friendly interface to use it, maintain it, and configure it. One of the main advantages of the program. Compared to other antivirus programs McAfee is relatively cheaper, and finally detection rate, when it comes to detection rate McAfee would still be somewhere at the top of the list. While there may be other programs with better detection rates, McAfee should be sufficient to keep those viruses away.

Disadvantages: - Some tests and comparisons carried out by TopTenReviews.com pointed out McAfee Antivirus as not the fastest antivirus around, because it consumes a lot of memory, whether it's during the scan or real time protection.

Another disadvantage is memory usage during scanning, the full scan duration maybe a long time if the program consumes little memory during scanning you could definitely multi task and eventually complete the scan. Unfortunately though, the memory usage too is a bit too high so you'll have to leave your computer alone until the scan completes.

My computer creating duplicate folder with .exe extention


That is very unusual behavior. I recommend that you scan for viruses and malware. I recommend AVG Free and Malwarebytes.org for these tasks.

How has mcafee let vires that has totaly wreck my computer, and as i pay sky for mcafee my contract is with sky and not mcafee i have sent three emails and not had a reply yet


There is no such thing as a perfect anti-virus program. The very best of them will only catch about 92--95% of potential viruses that they scan. And if you happen to click on the wrong thing or go to the wrong web page that is all ti takes to get an infection.

Mcafee is actually a pretty good antivirus program. If it is updated with the latest virus signatures it should be able to catch and kill most viruses other than the very latest new ones. Those new ones if they are differant may not be recognized as a virus until the next update.

Until you hear from Sky? I would sugest you update mcaffee and run a boot scan if your version has that option. Make sure it is set to scan all files and archives. That should help if not clean out the virus.

I downloaded ''Blurb'' - picture book making and got a virus


I don't know what a "Blurb"is, but to try to remove a virus, try a few standalone scanners since Panda seems not to be able to do it-- download and run-- or if they dont't work, try Avira, a very good free antivirus, which i've listed last below. Between the 2-3 of these, you'll have a good change to identify and remove your problem.

McAfee Stinger(free)

Spybot (free)

I have an older Gateway e-4200 and have contracted a virus which has caused the speed to slow drastically. How do I do a hard drive reformat without having to buy a program?


Try running McAfee virus scan or Norton virus scan. One of those programs should identify and remove the virus for you. Hope this helps.
