What is McAfee AntiVirus Plus?

The McAfee Antivirus Plus is one of the most popular antivirus software in the world, and has been a leader and pioneer of digital security since the introduction of computer viruses. McAfee Antivirus plus continues this tradition well into the 21st century.

The McAfee Antivirus Plus is known as VirusScan when incorporated into the McAfee Internet Security Suite (which also contains several other applications and security tools, such as an Internet firewall with bolstered capabilities), and the Antivirus Plus is its stand-alone software. It has the same feature set however, only that VirusScan (and VirusScan Plus) has built-in integration with other features of the Internet Security Suite. VirusScan also has a stand-alone application for IT and and corporate environments, VirusScan Enterprise, which is a different beast than the McAfee Antivirus Plus, which is targeted mainly for the consumer market.

McAfee Antivirus Plus, and its VirusScan cousins, all feature stringent anti-virus and personal firewall apabilities, spyware protection, on-access file scanning (known as the McAfee On-Access Scan, or OAS), McAfee X-Ray (rootkit detection), McAfee SiteAdvisor (anti-phishing, anti-spam, and real-time guard against browser threats and websites which have questionable and harmful content), and a real-time shield system that protects you as you work.
