1. Yes


2. Sorry but if... If McAfee doesn't know about a threat, the file passes without reaction.....

3. I was mainly talking about its memory and CPU consumption that I could see on Virtual Machine
1. I cannot find the keyword, AI, in your provided article.
2. You should test more samples and make sure Real Protect is running normally on your system (Test files to test Real Protect scanning and Credential Theft Protection).
3. I don't think so.

A video is planned on McAfee

For the consumption, look with ProcessExplorer or other, not with Windows
My advice is to familiarize yourself with the AV before putting it to the test. Otherwise, the result you get could be biased.

When it comes to measuring resource consumption, there is no difference between using Process Explorer and the built-in task manager. You should, however, compare the overall RAM usage before and after installation, to measure the actual RAM used by AVs. In this case, McAfee uses approximately 200 MB of RAM on my system.

It is already on one of my VMs since a few days :)

For the 2nd point, I always prefer to check with another task manager, Windows doesn't tell everything :) Then everyone does as he wants
