Somedays back I installed my McAFEE and had a virus scan back then, instantly after instalation. Well, after that I wasn't able to scan my computer for viruses. But today when I opened "My documents". It gave a message virus found and cleaned something like this. OK, I got bulked up and got cheered up too. Then a window opened and said that you should virus scan your computer now and I did. WOW! MY COMPUTER FOUND 64 VIRUES, 5 TROJANS, 7 PUPS, 12 ADWARES, 18 UNWANTED PROGRAMMS INCLUDING SEEKMO. I didn't believe this at first and then had too. But, of course it's cleaned up now. Thanks to the back and furious McAFEE of mine. Thanks McAFEE. Pls refer me some other anti-viruses so that I get my computer virus free. :)

That's something.I never had so many of them at the same time.I use AVG ,but I also use a firewall along with the antivirus .I think you should download a good firewall to go with the antivirus.There are too many intrusions from the internet into our pc without our knowledge.Firewalls block those intruders and gives you control over what to allow to reach your computer.

I use Trendmicro's Pccillin. I prefer it to Norton because Norton takes a lot out of pc and is so slow when doing a virus scan. I never had problems with Pccillin. I tried Mcafee on my first pc. It was okay but it was a bit pricier than trendmicro. You should always do a regular virus scan. Maybe once a week. Mcafee may have not detected the virus after installation because it wasn't updated yet. Always do an update because the anti-virus doesn't know a file to be a virus until it is updated with a virus pattern that detects the newer types of viruses.

i feel Mcafree is the best. but in my computer the virus scan professional will itself prompt if it finds any virus or even pup. i keep on updating it using internet. so i have no fear of virus through internet also. Mcafree serves the best..
