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:

Avira optimizes your firewall settings. While the native Windows firewall is powerful it can be complex. Avira optimizes firewall settings with one click. Avira does its best to prevent hijack attempts of your PC from leaking data out. This antivirus has protection against ransomware.
