McAfee Internet Security 2012
How would you live without your computer? It's how you get the news, share with friends, schedule your life, shop, and bank online. McAfee helps keep your PC safe from viruses, Trojans, spyware, and malware it might pick up from email, USB sticks, removable hard drives, or simply browsing online. With McAfee security software working in real time, security is there when you need it, invisible when you don't.
The most effective protection against virus and online threats
Confidence to play, work, and enjoy life online.
Updated 2012 Functions
The easy-to-use interface offers the highest level of operating comfort with just one click.
Unwanted email is more than a nuisance that wastes your time. Spam introduces offensive and obnoxious content, plus attachments and links may expose you to viruses and worms. McAfee uses the most advanced spam filters, active analysis, and global threat research to screen out unwanted email.
You would like your kids to be able to research, play, and socialize online. Yet it can be hard to know which specific sites to trust. McAfee parental controls allow you to set rules based on age, categories, and your preferences so your kids can use the Internet safely. These parental controls let you filter your children's web access, limit online time, and track their usage.
We invest in performance to help you enjoy your digital life to the limit—surfing, shopping, and socialising with minimal interruptions.
Whether you face loss, theft, or natural disaster, when you least expect it, you may find your most treasured digital files have disappeared. Keep your essential family photos, tax records, and music safe by backing them up to password-protected, encrypted online storage. Your priceless photos and files will be ready and waiting, even when your PC isn't.
