Never go online without the latest anti-virus protection. Fast-spreading mass-mailing viruses, worms and Trojans like Mydoom, Bagle and Sasser can easily infect exposed PCs over dial-up or broadband connections, forward themselves to your email contacts and even help remote hackers hijack personal information.
That's why award-winning McAfee VirusScan-trusted by millions worldwide-automatically scans your email, attachments, shared disks and downloads, then immediately starts to clean or quarantine infections. Easy to download, install and use, McAfee VirusScan automatically checks for virus updates* whenever you connect to the Internet, so your protection stays up-to-date against the latest threats, including spyware.
Whenever new viruses attack, McAfee VirusScan automatically updates itself with the latest virus definitions (DATs), silently in the background without interrupting your work.
Automatically attempts to clean infections when malicious threats are detected from viruses, worms, Trojans, ActiveX controls and Java applets.
Improved! Email Scanning
More efficient at handling today's larger file sizes (e.g., MP3s, digital photos, PowerPoint presentations), VirusScan automatically scans inbound (POP3) and outbound (SMTP) email and email attachments for most popular email clients, including Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Express, Netscape Mail, Eudora and others.
Improved! Spyware Detection and Removal
Quickly detects and helps delete potentially unwanted applications (PUPs) like key-loggers, Web dialers, pop-ups and adware that can rob personally identifiable information or slow your Web surfing.
Instant Message Scanning
VirusScan scans Instant Message attachments sent via AOL Instant Messenger, Yahoo Messenger and Windows Messenger. Checks attachments sent via AOL Instant Messenger 2.1 or later, Yahoo! Instant Messenger 4.1 or later, Microsoft Windows Messenger 3.6 or later, and MSN Messenger 6.0 or later for virus threats.
Uses advanced heuristic technology to detect mass-mailing worms by zeroing in on suspicious PC activity-such as unauthorized, bulk emails to contacts in your address book.
Detects then helps stop fast spreading viruses like I Love You, which use script-based code to infect your PC.
