Description from the Publisher:

Easy to use and always on guard, VirusScan automatically checks for virus updates and software updates (included FREE with your one-year coverage), so your protection is always up-to-the-minute. And it's from McAfee Security, a most trusted name in online security.

VirusScan Professional Edition includes quick cleanup of your PC, complete shredding for privacy, and advanced virus protection for two computers!


  • QuickClean Lite
    Quickly cleanup your PC with a 'one click' method of reclaiming disk space, or schedule the cleanup automatically. QuickClean Lite frees your system of unwanted files like the Recycle Bin, temporary files, and others that should be removed on a regular basis. QuickClean Lite frees up disk space and improves system performance.
  • Secure Data Shredding
    VirusScan Professional adds an extra layer of security and privacy for data and files by completely removing them from your computer where they cannot be recovered by any program, very similar to shredding paper files. Secure data shredding ensures maximum privacy.
  • 2-user License
    VirusScan Professional Edition includes a 2-user license so you can use professional-strength virus protection on two computers for added value.
  • Email Scanning
    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, Pegasus, and others. Email scanning provides a first line of defense from inbound threats before they arrive in your email inbox, and from outbound virus proliferation. Email scanning ensures that your computer's inbox is virus-free.
  • Instant Message Scanning
    VirusScan now scans instant message attachments sent through instant messaging clients including AOL Instant Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, and Windows Messenger. Instant message scanning provides an additional layer of security for users of popular instant message programs.
  • WormStopper™
    The majority of new viruses spread through email. WormStopper stops new mass-mailing worms by detecting activity that may indicate a new, undetected worm is active on your PC. WormStopper detects the sending of email to more than 40 recipients, sending more than 5 emails in less than 30 seconds, and also checks for repetitive email content. WormStopper ensures that a new undetected mass-mailing worm cannot spread using your computer providing more security for your PC.
  • Detects Spyware, Adware, and Web Dialers
    VirusScan can detect potentially unwanted applications like spyware, adware, web dialers and more. VirusScan detects these applications to protect your data and privacy.
  • ScriptStopper™
    Many of the fastest spreading viruses, like I Love You, use scripts to infect your PC. ScriptStopper detects new malicious threats and stops them from infecting your PC. ScriptStopper alerts you of the attempted activity and will stop actions that are initiated on your computer without your knowledge. ScriptStopper detects, alerts, and stops malicious script actions to keep your computer safe from scripts involved in virus activity providing an extra layer of security for your PC.
  • MS Outlook Scanning
    VirusScan provides scanning of emails and email folders from within MS Outlook so you can initiate scans directly from your MS Outlook email interface at any time.
  • Windows Explorer integration
    Now you can access VirusScan directly from the familiar Windows Explorer interface simply by selecting files and clicking on the VirusScan icon in the Windows Explorer window. Windows Explorer integration saves you time while protecting your computer.
  • AutoClean
    VirusScan attempts to automatically clean virus-infected files when a malicious threat is detected. AutoClean saves you time while protecting your computer.
  • Submit Files to AVERT™
    VirusScan now includes the ability to submit suspicious files from VirusScan directly to the McAfee Antivirus Emergency Response Team (AVERT) for assessment saving you time.
  • Silent Updating
    VirusScan and McAfee Security Center provide silent updating of virus definitions (DATs) when you're connected to the Internet to ensure that your computer is always up-to-date.
  • Proactive Security Information
    VirusScan includes McAfee Security Center to provide up-to-date security information about your computer and the latest threats that may affect you. In the event of a virus outbreak or other security event, McAfee Security Center immediately warns users of the malicious threat to eliminate McAfee users being involved in the spread of a new, undetected threat.
