When I upgraded from Windows 8 to 10 last year, I had to remove Mc Afee Virus Scan Enterprise (VSE) prior to the upgrade.
Unfortunately, I wasn't able to reinstall it after the upgrade was done, because Mc Afee didn't have a compatible version of its software yet. So, I had to wait a few months before I was able to install it again.
Like Norton Anti Virus, Virus Scan scans for nonvirus spyware, adware, and dialers.
On our tests, we found that it did find and delete some of the malware we installed, but you'll probably want to back it up with antispyware software.
When worm behavior is detected, such as sending more than five e-mails within 30 seconds, Virus Scan asks whether you want to block them.
