Windows 7: Mcafee Total Protection 2010


13 Sep 2009   #1

Windows® 8 Pro (64-bit)
 
 
Mcafee Total Protection 2010

Installation is very quick and easy.

Taking up to 35-40 MB RAM when idle.

Interface is very simple. I guess its because its a beta version. Mcafee total protection 2009 has a different GUI altogether.

Will check on the detections and heuristics later.

Overall a very nice product. But can slow down old computers.
Nevertheless, if you've got 4 GB RAM, would you mind giving 40-50 MB towards security?

What i like about mcafee is its virtual technician. It can fix many issues without reinstalling mcafee products.

I used Mcafee years ago and hated it then. Getting my antivirus's permission to do anything did not sit well with me.

Hi Leslie, i guess the earlier products were horrible. This one's quite impressive. Try it.

Be careful with McAfee

There beta of 2010 appears to be Windows 7 compatible - but they are also selling their 2009 product in boxes labeled 2010. the 09 version isn't Windows 7 compatible.

See Is McAfee selling 2009 products in a 2010 box? - Security

Man My old school used the 2006 version and it used at least 200MB for the shield (avshield.exe, I think).
Glad to see some improvements.
When I look at AntiVirus in terms of resources, I really dont care about RAM as long as its under 50MB. I care about CPU usage. Mcafee is always high on CPU. Just load a program with task manager open and see how much CPU it uses, same with Vipre. NOD32 is VERY good at CPU.
