MCAfee VirusScan Plus 2009

Does McAfee VirusScan Plus 2009 come with Firewall meaning I will be able to uninstall Free Version Zonealarm? And if does come with Firewall is their any other reason why I should purchase Internet Security Suite 2009?

Only thing I want is good Antivirus Software and another firewall instead of using Zonealarm. Would appreciate anyone's help with this question..

It contains VirusScan, Firewall and SiteAdvisor. The description is here: http://au.mcafee.com/root/package.asp?pkgid=276

If you want parental controls and anti-spam then go for one of the bigger suites, but VirusScan Plus gives you exactly what you want.

Aside from the SiteAdvisor, you'll get more than that: Virusscan Plus does include protection against spyware and adware, I suppose I could say it protects you against MALWARE (=viruses, trojans, malicious scripts, spyware, adware, other malicious stuff).

But McAfee certainly doesn't excel in dealing with spyware and adware (=prevention, detection, removal).

There isn't such an animal as the perfect protection software. That's why we recommend extra anti-spyware: http://community.mcafee.com/showthread.php?t=136913
