This program can not context scan or scan within the program itself. Just a warning for those interested. It's not implemented yet.
Edit: It appears it can not even scan files just sitting on your hard drive. It seems to scan on execution at this point and even that I can not be sure of (I'm not running malware on host machine). Hope I'm wrong otherwise this is practically an Alpha instead of a Beta....
Interesting to see if other paid-only vendors follow Intel Security (McAfee) on this.
Perhaps in the next few Beta releases, Windows 10 will be supported. But as I see it, with Windows 10, McAfee Free Antivirus would be targeting to replace Windows Defender, but not to offer complete protection. Instead users would need to upgrade to McAfee Internet Security, or other paid options.
What I want to know is, does the McAfee Free Antivirus include GTI File Reputation (formally known as Artemis)?
Are there any other links for help files, or information about download size, installation process, memory usage etc.?
They have improved their performance considerably since they were taken over by Intel, even their detection has gotten decent.
I think this will be like Panda, install and forget for most users with basic protection (no WF etc.).
