McAfee Live Safe Help software basically works by analyzing program data files against a robust list of current signature/virus or threat definition files; any program/data that matches a signature/definition file is treated as suspicious, infelicitous and is either deleted or quarantined. A pop up alert would appear to warn the user of the infection. Advanced McAfee products today works by employing advanced technologies, like heuristic-based detection, behavioral-based detection, and sandbox detection to analyze suspicious program data files.

All program data files (executable) that enter a system go through the McAfee scan. Those that match the signatures/data are classified as viruses, infection, malware, spyware etc and are blacklisted. The other program data files then go through the Defense + HIPS (Host Intrusion Prevention System). Here the genuine and secure files would be allowed entry and would run in the system while the unknown ones, irrespective of whether they are good or bad, are sent to the Defense+ Sandbox. These would be allowed to run the set up, but only in this restricted environment. Those that the user allows as good files would be added to the White list while all others would remain in the sandbox or get blacklisted, after which they would go to the labs for analysis.
