The McAfee Total Protection system is an anti-virus and anti-malware program that you can download on your computer to get passive assistance with computer security. The system is designed to scan your computer and determine if there are unwanted programs of files present. This is work you cannot do on your own because it is too difficult to find the many hidden folders on your computer.

The Pros Of Using McAfee Total Protection

  • The McAfee Total Protection system is completely passive. You do not have to do anything when the computer is being scanned. The program eliminates unwanted files for you without so much as an alert.
  • McAfee Total Protection is updated through an Internet connection. If you maintain your Internet connection, the program can be updated automatically via their server.
  • McAfee Total Protection will stop you from downloading harmful files. The warnings you receive when you are trying to download dangerous files can prevent you from having problems with your computer.
  • The system also scans your computer on a regular basis. When your computer is being scanned every few hours and every week, you are assured that harmful software is not present on your computer.

The Cons Of Using McAfee Total Protection

  • The McAfee Total Protection system can become less than passive when it runs into files it is unsure of. You may receive alerts asking if you want to delete or keep files. This can be bothersome if you are trying to be productive.
  • McAfee Total Protection will pop up when it begins a new scan. There are times when you may want to avoid a scan, but you may not have time to deal with the program when you prefer it run in the background.
  • The program is not perfect. There are programs that it cannot find that may have infected your computer. You must be diligent outside the use of the program if you want to protect your computer.

The McAfee Total Protection System is designed to protect your computer from harmful viruses and malware. You must remember that the program is not always passive, but it does cover a majority of the viruses that are currently known.
