McAfee AntiVirus Plus 2012: a Detailed Analysis

By Neha Subscribe to RSS | July 12th 2012 | Views:

Are you tired of the online attacks that drive you to format the system time and again? Ensure that you have a better security software program installed to avoid fatal virus inflictions and other malicious software from entering the system. McAfee is a major name that’s associated with the manufacturing of a wide range of antivirus products. The company has come up with yet another antivirus with the name AntiVirus Plus 2012 that’s said to have different features and more than just antivirus protection.

The product can obviously provide ample safety to the system from the threats like viruses, rootkits, Trojans, or others and also prevents the new threats from entering into the PC. Apart from the basic security, it also has the following aspects to consider:

Unusual Interface: Unlike most of the antivirus programs, AntiVirus Plus 2012 has a different approach when it’s about user interface. With taller windows, you would find drawers that open to show particular components, just one at a time. Its, though interesting to look at yet the user may tend to keep on opening and closing the drawers in order to search for a component. There is also one different user interface with the name Navigation Center. It allows you to reach the threat map or traffic monitor.

Easy installation yet poor cleanup: It was found in the test done by PCMAG, that the software was easy to install even on the malware inflicted computers though, to clean up the system McAfee's CleanBoot Recovery Disc was required again, a suggestion made by Mcafee Support, which was obviously not very handy. The total time of scanning a computer is equal to 27 minutes and the repeated scanning takes around two minutes only, which is almost as good as the contemporary brands. All the threats like virus, Trojans or other malicious programs are immediately cleared by the scanner. Towards the end of the scanning it questions whether to quarantine the "potentially unwanted programs" present in the system. It was also observed that with 79% threat detection rate McAfee remained behind the others. The likes of Webroot SecureAnywhere Antivirus, GFI VIPRE Antivirus 2012, and Panda Cloud Anti-Virus 1.5 Free Edition all scored at 94% and 91% respectively. The software also had a hard time with rootkits in the tests conducted by the PCMAG, it detected around 86% of the rootkits and once the scanning stopped, 50% of the detected rootkits were not affected in any way with their technology still intact.

Strong blocking: McAfee AntiVirus Plus 2012 proved to be very effective in removing malicious software from an already clean PC. Its SiteAdvisor component works proficiently in blocking infected URL’s and it can also effectively quarantine the URLs’.

McAfee shows good performance except for the rootkits detection. In case if you find any other difficulty with the software, Mcafee Help is the place that offers assistance to know the product and its functionalities better.

Other than the performance of the security software, there could be many other concerns related to installation, network connectivity, internet connection that can be put forth at the support center. You can call upon the Mcafee Number or reach out to a third party service to get an economical and comprehensive technical support.
