Say goodbye to viruses

With a high performance scanning engine, your PC will be protected against attacks without compromising any speed. Whether your PC is at risk from viruses, Trojans, spyware or rootkits, Total Protection 2014 will be on guard, offering complete protection to keep your computer up and running.

Thanks to the user-friendly home screen you can navigate through your virus protection simply, staying on top of your PC's safety.

Safer search and shopping

Whatever you're searching for online, you'll be able to see whether the results are safe to click on thanks to the colour-coded icons that appear next to every search result. Covering everything from retail sites to social networking, you'll be protected against dangerous links. The digital data message also includes the location of blocked IP addresses and informs you why the connection is unsafe.

Enhanced security reports display information about your security in a way that's easy to understand.

Spam and pop-ups are history

Whether you're being bombarded with annoying and potentially dangerous emails or have pop-ups littering your screen, Total Protection 2014 can help to take care of them. Potentially dangerous ads and pop-ups are blocked, whilst the antispam engine helps to filter out spam from your inbox whilst allowing your emails to remain.

Protecting your family

You can rely on Total Protection 2014 to help to protect your family from inappropriate sites. Using age-based rules and categories, you can not only block them from dodgy content but even limit the amount of time they spend online and create a surfing report that informs you when they log in and if they have tried to access forbidden sites.

PC protection

As well as protecting your information from being stolen thanks to anti-phishing software, Total Protection 2014 also helps to protect your wireless network from being accessed using Home Network Defence. This protects your passwords and personal files so they cannot be accessed. Your information can also be encrypted for added protection.

Even your social networks can stay safer as this helps to make sure URLs that are posted are safe, and can even shorten them for short and sweet tweets.

Surf the net without a worry when you use McAfee Total Protection 2014 to keep your system protected.
