Cool Features:

McAfee is a household name with several key features. Probably the most impactful feature is the money-back guarantee. If McAfee can't remove your infected virus you will get a 100% refund. Also very useful is the file shredder feature. Permanently delete files off of your PC for good. Provides protection against viruses, malware, ransomware and other online threats. How McAfee handles new suspicious threats is interesting. When McAfee encounters a suspicious program it sends data to the McAfee cloud to analyze. It will then log the program's behavior and roll back any vicious actions if the program is found to be a problem.

Cool Features:

Ad-Aware's malware sandbox emulator intelligently analyzes possible threats by monitoring a potential threat in a virtual environment before it ends up on your computer. This prevents malware from ever actually doing damage on your computer. This process is done in the background. It does not require any user intervention. The Safe Browsing engine persistently checks newly browsed websites against a freshly updated list of known virus infected sites. The official Ad-Aware malware list is updated every 5-20 minutes. Ad-Aware Safe Browsing keeps you safe while you browse the web. Every new URL you visit is checked against a known blacklist of malicious sites. If you click on a dangerous link on accident then Ad-Aware Safe Browsing will immediately warn you.
