Cloudswave Score for McAfee Antivirus Plus
Rating based on 11 Critic Reviews
Randall Sutherland, on TopTenReviews
A McAfee AntiVirus software license protects one Windows PC for one year and protects it very well; much better than most. Although it competes with antivirus products, it includes antiphishing, a firewall and file shredder, features that are usually part of internet security suites, rather than basic antivirus products. Unless you have more than one PC to protect, McAfee AntiVirus would not be out of place on your short list of virus protection products to consider.

To put it simply, McAfee AntiVirus Plus 2014 is best for a clean computer. The software falls down somewhat when it comes to removing malware and rootkits. The firewall addition to the antivirus package is a big advantage, but unless you are desperate for this feature you’ll find the higher-ranked antivirus packages better for the overall protection of your system.

McAfee represents a reasonable value. It provides solid protection for home computers. It includes a two-way firewall, along with several extras. The UI is touch-friendly and performance impact in minimal. Scanning times are fast. Any qualms we have are minor. it could be a bit easier to start a scan or to get to settings, but we found no issues with the software’s performance and features. We’re happy to recommend McAfee AntiVirus Plus 2014.
From Laptop Mag
McAfee AntiVirus Plus is among the top 10 antivirus products available on the market. It effectively protects against known and unknown threats. However, it is not the very best at disinfecting or repairing a PC that is already compromised. Nevertheless, it has great features, such as the ability to warn you about phishing sites and the ability to scan compressed files

McAfee AntiVirus Plus 2014 is practically a mini-suite, with firewall, phishing protection, and a variety of bonus features. It's not quite an Editors' Choice, but it's definitely an effective tool.

McAfee AntiVirus Plus 2010 offers good protection that most home users require. On a single PC, it's worth using the protection and programs of McAfee in Windows 7. If your ISP provides a free security solution by McAfee, take advantage of it. Newly purchased computers come with McAfee virus protection for windows 7 as well. This software is highly recommended.
From pc antivirus reviews
McAfee 2015 was a disappointment for us. With too many issues like tech support costs and a weak interface, this version is a letdown, particularly after a poor showing last year, too. Even though it includes a software firewall and an excellent vulnerability scanner, the value of those things doesn't outweigh the overall virus protection which was average in most areas. As a leader in the antivirus industry, McAfee could—and should—deliver a stronger product.
Overall, McAfee is about middle of the road when it comes to virus protection. Yes, they have been around for quite some time. If brand and longevity is important to you then you can’t really go wrong with them. Their longevity speaks for itself, and some people need that in order to trust who they buy software from. But, we believe there better options available on the market.
From Computer Security Review
McAfee has come a long way to recover from the well-deserved reputation of "resource hog", earned over many years of "bloatware" preinstalled on branded computers. The new AntiVirus plus is a good product, with several basics but no stand-out feature, in addition to the excellent virus detection, that is. All in all, it comes out as the "jack of all trades".
From Antivirus Software Ratings
Though McAfee AntiVirus has been installed on millions of consumer computer products, it lacks a few features that other programs offer expertise in. The AV-Test results show that the antivirus software is acceptable protection, but not really praiseworthy.
