With Bit Defender and Kaperski, McAfee rates in the top 3 on many internet security reviews (#2). Here are my 10 cents worth after using all 3 of the above. Bit Defender has an excellent firewall but during a full scan, it tends to slow down the computer quite a bit. Of the 3, Kaperski has the fastest scan. Both Mc and Ski have very good firewall. But only Mc's firewall was certified by ICSA labs in 2009. Of the 3, I found Mc's Antivirus to be superior to the other 2 ( a solid A minus - B+ for the others). It was particularly well suited in detecting malicious items from foreign websites. The user interface in Mc's was more friendly than the other 2. Although ski's is only slightly just a notch behind. Mc's uses simple to understand traffic lights. Red: warning do not click into the website. Yellow: use caution. Green: OK! What could be more simple. In terms of price Mc's is stuck between the two. Therefore here is the verdict: Bit defender - Excellent Firewall and above average AntiVirus. Slow scan and excellent price. Kaperski: very good firewall and Antivirus. Fastest Scan. It does everything very well, but does not excel in one particular area. Downside: a little pricey. Reviewer's choice: McAfee. A very good firewall and excellent Antivirus. Scan speed C+. Full of features and user friendly (a 7 year old could understand their color code). McAfee has set the standard for your complete computer protection. It's a no brainer.

Complete anti-virus, anti-spyware, and anti-malware—Relentless security software scans and blocks dangerous emails, risky web content, and online threats like viruses, Trojans, spyware, and rootkits.
Real-time safeguards—Cybercriminals are masters of disguise. If something new looks suspicious, McAfee® Active Protection™ immediately determines its risk to help keep your computer secure.
Two-way firewall—Extra layers of Internet security software block bad guys from breaking in or seeking out your personal information. This traffic cop patrols nonstop to prevent malicious software from gaining access to your PC.
Safe searching and shopping—Color-coded icons next to your search results let you know before you click which sites are safe and which may install malicious code, phish for your identity, or send you spam.
Fast startup and scan times—We invest in performance to help you enjoy your digital life to the limit—surfing, shopping, and socializing with minimal interruptions.
Digital data shredder—Permanently destroy sensitive files to be sure they cannot be retrieved by other users when you donate, recycle, or lend your PC.
PC tune-up—Unused applications, cached browser files, and other junk slow down your PC. McAfee QuickClean™ software removes the clutter so your computer can keep up with your digital life.
NEW Exclusive anti-bot protection—McAfee now blocks stealthy botnet software by denying its attempts to connect your PC to web addresses that belong to crooks. This extra defense helps prevent your computer from sending out your personal information to Internet crime networks.
NEW USB and removable drive scan—Portable storage devices can be infected in their travels, spreading malicious code from system to system. McAfee can scan and block this portable payload of viruses, Trojans, and worms before they can work their way into your PC and your network.
NEW Pre-install scan—Many people get McAfee protection because they are already infected. To help you salvage your system, McAfee works to remove infections as our software installs.
Block Spam and Dangerous Email
Anti-spam—The majority of emails are spam, and much of that spam is dangerous, offensive, or both. McAfee spam filters constantly protect you from this shady side of the Internet.
Protect Your Family
Parental controls—Free your kids to learn and explore online. McAfee lets parents use age-based rules and adjustable categories to block inappropriate sites and limit online time.
NEW Surfing report—When you need to know what is happening online, this report shows login times, attempts to access forbidden sites, and total online time. You can also see who is online when.
Protect Your Personal Data
Online backup—Some memories can’t be replaced—unless you have them backed up online. Save your most important photos, music, and personal and financial files automatically to a password protected, encrypted safe deposit box in the cloud. You can recover them whenever you need them.
