McAfee Security Scan Plus Review

A review of McAfee Security Scan Plus by Sven Sørensen

McAfee Security Scan Plus is a freeware and basic malware protection application provided to home users by Intel's McAfee division.

The installation of the program is quick and simple and provides a few of the basic protections that will check your system to see whether there is installed antivirus software, a functioning firewall and whether web protection is currently enabled.

The tool will also check to see whether the currently installed antivirus and firewall software are up-to-date.

Though the application is similar to Windows' own tool to see whether the system is protected, it provides an alternative and also promotes its own McAfee Site Advisor along with promotion of McAfee's own antivirus program.

Overall, McAfee Security Scan Plus is not necessary software but can give a second opinion as to whether the system is sufficiently protected; not useful for anybody with a lot of experience.

McAfee Security Scan Plus features and highlights:
  • Provides a level of virus protection
