Main screen - McAfee has opted for a narrow user interface that switches between features in the lower portion of the screen. It has a slightly dated look compared to the newer slicker looking interfaces offered by its competitors BitDefender, Kaspersky & Norton.

Scanning features - McAfee includes real-time scanning and gives you the option to select the type of files what it to scan and their locations.

Scan scheduling - If you prefer not to have real-time virus scanning you can instead opt for a scheduled scan. You can schedule your scan every day, week or month. You can also schedule the exact day of the week and its start time.

Safe searching - McAfee scans the results that appear in your search engine results and gibves you a colour coded icon to indicate the potential risk of each link.

File shredder - Destroy files on your computer perminantly so that they cannot be recovered. Very few anti-virus programs offer file shredding, so its a nice little extra offered by McAfee.

Firewall - McAfee has included a two way firewall with McAfee AntiVirus Plus 2012. Like the file shredder its an nice extra that will give you another layer of protection.

Updates - You don't need to manually check for updates, McAfee AntiVirus Plus 2012 can do this automatically for you.

Quick scan - Here is the quick scan in progress. You can set it to scan silently in the background and you can also ask it to turn off your computer if no threats have been found.
