The Security Center is merely the interface for all the different components, Firewall Plus, VirusScan etc. Internet Security Suite is a set of applications offered at a set price,

Alll of them include Security Center.
Family Protection is a separate product which takes Parental Controls much further than previously possible.
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.
Really? I wasn't aware of that, sorry. I was looking at this page which reflects basically the same stuff as the McAfee Home Page.
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.
I would recommend you purchase directly from McAfee. Whenever new products are launched partners like Dell and Comcast take longer to offer them to customers.
Agreed. Comcast is a year behind right now & there's nothing McAfee can do about it.
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.
In Add/Remove it will always just show as McAfee Security Center, because when you select that for uninstallation it then asks you which component(s) you wish to remove.
I think new things like Family Protection may be listed separately, but as I don't have it, I'm not sure about that.
