This the only key area where this software performed well. It is below par when it comes to performance. This implies that this software will certainly slow down your system.


This software provides much more than antivirus protection. It also provides protection for your system against ransomware.

It also scans your incoming emails along with their attachments to make sure that nothing attached to them ever infects your computer.

It also provides automatic USB devices scans whenever you plug them into your system and inform about harmful files if they are present in them.

It also has a gaming mode that usually suspends few of the functions when you are playing any computer game so as to ensure that your play doesn’t get interrupted with slowed system or due to any pop-up reminders.

2. It also includes various features which are generally found in complete protection suites like a firewall.

3. While performing AV-Test, an independent test, McAfee performs much better when it comes to antivirus software for PCs with Windows.
