Are you exposed? Don't surf the Net, download files or open email attachments without the latest defense against more than 67,000 known viruses and the 300 new ones discovered every month.

Trusted by over 2 million satisfied users worldwide, VirusScan protects your PC, files and email address book from high-risk, productivity-killing viruses, worms and trojans like Bugbear, Slammer, Code Red, Nimda, SirCam and Nicehello.

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


Email Scanning - VirusScan now 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 messages and attachments sent through instant messaging clients including AOL Instant Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, and Windows Messenger.

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.

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 an additional security layer for your PC.

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 with VirusScan saves you time while protecting your computer.

AutoClean - VirusScan automatically attempts to clean virus-infected files when a malicious threat is detected. AutoClean saves you time while protecting your computer.

Detects Spyware, Adware, and Web Dialers - VirusScan detects potentially unwanted applications like spyware, adware, web dialers and more. VirusScan will detect these applications to protect your data and privacy.

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.

MS Outlook Scanning - VirusScan provides scanning of emails and email folders from within MS Outlook so you can initiate scans for Outlook email at any time.

Silent Updating - VirusScan and McAfee Security Center provide silent updating of virus definitions (DATs) to ensure that your computer is always up-to-date.

Proactive Security Information - VirusScan includes McAfee Security Center to provide constantly 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.
