A firewall will just block any access to the Internet incoming and Outgoing, that is not allow by the User, You. Putting a Firewall will assist with not getting any further Viruses, But Not with removing, However if your Mcafee comes with a Firewall and an anti-virus, This would work. You can also Goto Symantec.com or Mcafee and they have free On-line Virus scanners and you can atleast know what your Dealing with. From there Symantec has Virus removal tools for specific viruses. I do however recommend an Anti-virus software, Something like Kaspersky would do you wonders

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.

Every time I try to download from macafee cd,I get and error and it shutdown my internet ,then I have to start in safe mode and restore, I am running windows 7


1. Uninstall any other firewalls you may have on your computer. On Windows, you can find these programs under the "Security Center" on the "Control Panel." To prevent computer shutdowns, make sure you plan to install the new McAfee Firewall right away.
2. Wait to receive an email from McAfee that you can download your firewall. After your payment has been processed, they will send you a link to log into the McAfee website.
3. Log in your account by selecting "My Account" from the McAfee website. You will need to give the email address and password that you set when you purchased the firewall.
4. Go to "Account Info." Under this heading, you will find a listing of the McAfee products, including the firewall. Choose the firewall selection and then double click the "Download" icon.
5. Restart your computer once the download is complete. McAfee Firewall will be set to launch at start up. Click on the McAfee icon on your Windows program tray. Make sure the firewall is turned to "On." This should help protect your computer from problems like shutdowns. If you still experience problems, run a virus and spyware scan to remove any malware.

Computer is very slow.


McAfee virus software is a memory hog. You need to add more memory to your pc. It uses pc3200 memory. This computer has a memory capacity of 4gigabytes. The memory slots are numbered this way......starting from the memory slot closest to the processor>
one, three, two, four. 1 and 2 work together, 3 and 4 work together. So if you buy just 2 gigabytes......put them in 1 and 2. This will help. Sounds like the virus software is doing a full system scan....you could do a "quick"scan and do a "full" scan once a week....

Cannot serf internet cause of spyware virus


it sounds like your virus protection has expired and you may have a firewall up blocking the internet connection.

two options: pay mcafee the yearly renewal or go here http://www.download.com/AVG-Anti-Virus-Free-Edition/3000-2239_4-10320142.html?part=dl-10044820&subj=dl&tag=button&cdlPid=11009475
and download a free professional antivirus, anti-spyware, and extensive firewall.

if you do download the new FREE program, make sure you completely uninstall ALL virus and spyware programs you may already have installed. Including Mcafee.


after youve decided what you will do and finished that part. open your web browser, go to internet options, advanced, and reset to default settings. then select the security tab and set to normal.

you should be all set!! Good Luck
