My McAfee subscription will be ending soon, and I need to make a couple of decisions. I have a Dell computer and received a few emails recently about the new and improved SecurityCenter. It is being offered at a discount until June 30. I am also looking at Internet Security Suite and Family Protection. My first question is simply, Which is better; the new SecurityCenter or Internet Security Suite? The Suite is actually being offered at a better price for three computers than SecurityCenter on one. My thirteen year old spends a lot of time on the internet with friends and such. I would like to monitor where she goes and who she's talking with as well as limit the time she is on the internet. Is Family Protection a better option for her computer? Many thanks, in advance, for your input.
The McAfee OEM package offered through Dell is simply called McAfee Security Center, I haven't really checked before, but I think it is similar to Internet Security, minus SiteAdvisor and Automatically back up your data.
OK, having said all of that, which is the most cost efficient option? Internet Security Suite is listed on the McAfee web page as presently 3 Licenses for 34.99 while SecurityCenter is going for 49.99 for one license and an additional 10.00 for each subsequent computer. Obviously, I'm looking for the most "bang for the buck".
Can you point me to a page where I can see this "Security Center"?. It depends what you want. If you are the only one using the machine, or have no kids then all you need is VirusScan Plus. Unless you want spam filtering as well.
Thanks for that link, Peter. I wasn't aware Dell offered such variety now in security software. When I bought my Dell two years ago, there was only a choice between McAfee and Norton. I purchased a three year subscription to McAfee along with my computer and it was just named Security Center (in add/remove), even on the backup disk, oh well.
