Ease of Setup/Use
For a company with such a good reputation, we were disappointed in McAfee Anti-Spyware's feature set. Although the program offers many useful features-like Scan Scheduling, Auto Updates and Real-Time Tracking-it's missing assets such as spyware/adware descriptions and threat levels; these help you determine whether the detected spyware and adware are dangerous or benign.
McAfee Anti-Spyware missed much of the spyware and adware we tested. Though marginally effective, this is not software that we recommend to those looking for high-level spyware and adware protection.
McAfee Anti-Spyware is simple to use. With few customizable features, McAfee is simple for novices.
There are few customization tools in McAfee Anti-Spyware. You can enable and disable Real-Time Tracking abilities, but that's it.
Once you receive delivery of McAfee Anti-Spyware, installation is easy but time-consuming-the installation had us restart our computer three times before the install was completed, which we felt excessive.
McAfee Anti-Spyware supports their products in several different ways: a FAQs page, email support and a convenient live chat feature online. However, when we contacted McAfee, their staff could not answer many of our questions.
