McAfee Software has launched a clutch of restructured products which it claims allows users to choose how they receive protection from viruses. McAfee VirusScan includes 30 days' product updates, 30 days' technical support and a lifetime's supply of file updates which users can download form McAfee's Web site. Priced at £24.95 (including VAT), the anti-virus company believes this will appeal to users who are confident about updating their software online. McAfee VirusScan Deluxe (£34.95 including VAT) offers the same package and includes full copies of Oil Change and First Aid 2000. Dr Solomon's VirusScan Toolkit (£69.95 including VAT), on the other hand, is aimed at those users who would prefer not to download files from the Internet. Instead, they receive their virus updates courtesy of a CD distributed each quarter. "There really is something for everyone here -- for people who feel happy surfing the Internet, those who don't and those who want a sharp fix for viruses on their PC," said Sarah Whipp, European Channel Marketing manager for McAfee Software Division. ®
