This software has a very low rate of generating false positive alarms. The database is large enough to detect widespread malware without causing any hassle for the users.

This can give you the opportunity to keep peace of mind while using the tool. It also comprise of an excellent toolbox that is packed with useful utilities. They can definitely improve the performance of your system. The Quick Clean feature of McAfee Antivirus looks for all the files that can be deleted in order to free up disk space and enhance the performance.

Features

Premium antivirus applications are supposed to come with a wide range of features on top of their virus detection capabilities. This fact can be applied for McAfee Antivirus as well. You will be able to get access to a dedicated Internet browser, an integrated backup tool and a virtual keyboard along with this antivirus application. The integrated browser can be used to shop or bank online, whereas the virtual keyboard can be used to stay away from keylogging threats. In addition, McAfee Antivirus offers a webcam protector to the users as well. However, it does not have a browser extension, which can be used to monitor the online activity of users. You can also find a file shredder and a password manager that offers 1GB cloud space.

McAfee Antivirus can easily be installed on any computer or mobile device without professional assistance. The pale grey colored main interface is well optimized to make the life easy for its users. In fact, the main screen sums up all the information that you need to know about the system.

However, you will have to perform the system scans through a text heavy screen, which looks a little complicated.
