Top Customer Reviews
Some of the basics are: Virus protection (which updates itself), Spyware protection, Firewall protection, Email protection for virus and spyware and lots of other things I have yet to really explore. The menu box gives you your own opportunity to perform specific tasks. There is the QUICKCLEAN, which removes your Internet cache, temporary files, lost fragment files, old registry keys, deleted Email messages and other non-essential files that take up space. You can also DEFRAGMENT your hard drive whenever you want to speed up your computer. The TASK SCHEDULER allows you to create Windows scheduled tasks that clean your computer routinely.
That is the most important stuff, but there are about a dozen more accessories you can use to protect and optimize your computer. I do suggest you schedule your tasks for the middle of the night, as when McAfee was running in the background, everything slowed down significantly. If you have more than one computer, you might want to check out the "3-User" version to save money.
