  • Question

  • I was wondering if anyone got McAfee 8.5 successfully installed and running on their WHS, and if so did it affect the performance of your WHS a lot?

    Will I be able to run it without performance issues, I have a Celeron 1.6 GHz, 1GB ram, 2x500GB HDD, 2x750GB HDD?

    Is the any settings I need to change for WHS?

  • I have been using Mcafee 8.5 since the beginning of WHS and have suffered no performance / operational issues.

  • If it installs you are likely to run into performance and / or other problems.  McAfee and Avast already have dedicated AV products for WHS.  Also F-secure has recently released WHS version.

    Installing an A/V on WHS that is not WHS-aware is not recommended and unsupported.  WHS doesn't handle files like other MS OSes and some A/Vs may treat normal WHS operations as a potential virus.
