Compliments antivirus programs
McAfee® Anti-Theft complements already installed firewall security programs in the PC. Everyday, thousands of new viruses appear in security software companies research labs. Conventional security software products can not keep up often requiring an additional layer of firewall protection when online. Yes, you still need that traditional protection system to guard against the viruses and spyware that are already out there. But McAfee® Anti-Theft goes a step further by enhancing protection from unknown and new threats.
System disk protection
McAfee® Ant-Theft enables firewall protection of the system disk that allows you to keep RAM contents which are saved to your disk safe when the system hibernates. Your crash dump data saved to your hard disk when a total error occurs is also protected. Data in temporary files and swap files is also protected.
With this tool installed there is no such performance issue, but instead it provides improved performance. The systems boot time, shut down and operation time is improved. Start-up time after hibernation and sleep mode is improved especially for laptops. Since the system performance increases so does the speed of the system. This tool requires less time to scan the complete system. You can even use the various options to scan the selected drives only.
