Description of McAfee FreeScan
Detect viruses on your computer with this free tool, based on McAfee’s VirusScan engine. FreeScan searches for viruses, including the latest known “in the wild” viruses, and displays a detailed list of any infected files. Should viruses be found, FreeScan links to information about the virus and tells you what you can do to clean your system.
FreeScan uses ActiveX components to initiate scanning. The first time you access FreeScan, the required ActiveX components are downloaded to your computer. The user interface is an HTML page.
