Review: McAfee Endpoint Protection for SMB


Re: Fellow commentards - help needed pls...

Just uninstall McAfee and let the Windows one do its thing. AFAIK all modern AV uses the MS API anyway so it's really just interface and definitions you're worried about. Make sure the firewall is on and configured and you'll stop 99.99% of modern malware. Don't click on stupid emails/links/pictures and you'll stop most of the rest. For the one in a million remaining, Microsoft are quire capable by themselves because it's really a crap-shoot as to who gets a definition out first. Anyone who genuinely is first every time with a definition for new exploits I would recommend not funding simply because they probably also wrote or funded the malware!
