McAfee Free Security Scan

There are many antivirus and antispyware programs you can choose to help protect your computer. Some are free and some you have to pay for. When it comes to having the best protection for your system you really should run scans with more than one utility to make sure you get the best scan results you can since not all programs will find all of the virus and spyware that is out there.

And how do you know if you even have the right type of protection installed on your computer? Many people don't know wat antivirus and antispyware software they have installed or if they even have any installed at all.

McAfee now offers a free online virus scan to anyone with an internet connection. All you need to do is go to the site here and download and install the software. It will scan your computer for installed virus and spyware protection, whether or not your firewall is on, if you have any web protection and also if you have any known threats on your computer.

We do not think this is the most effective way to scan your computer for viruses or spyware but its better than nothing and a good way to see if you have any basic problems. Its easy to uninstall after you perform the scan if you don't find it helpful.
