You better be getting that for free.. other wise you may be wasting your money.. mcafee is not one the best antivirus known out there.

keep in mind that downloading the antivirus is not the same as installing the antivirus and getting it to run.. so look for the installation package you download and look for a file that's called setup.exe and run it to actually install the antivirus. once install, configure automatic updates for your antivirus and you should see the macfee icon on the system tray (bottom rigth area where the clock is).

(Important: Before uninstalling your McAfee product, please make sure that your Norton is functioning properly and is up-to-date for better protection of your system.)

Are you using free trial version of McAfee virus protection or is it paid?
Here's how you can remove McAfee from your system:
You can remove the application from your system by following the uninstallation steps mentioned below:
For Windows 8 users:
1) Close all McAfee program windows.
2) In the Start screen, type "Programs and Features". (If it is not visible, click "Settings" in the list on the right.)
3) Click "Programs and Features" in the list on the left.
4) Select "McAfee SecurityCenter".
5) Click "Uninstall" and follow any on-screen prompts.
For Windows 7 and Vista users:
1) Close all McAfee program windows.
2) Click "Start", go to "Search", then type "Programs and Features", and click "Go".
3) Double-click "Programs and Features".
4) Select "McAfee Security Center".
5) Click "Uninstall" and follow any on-screen prompts.

For Windows XP users:
1) Close all McAfee program windows.
2) Click "Start", go to "Settings", and then go to "Control Panel".
3) Double-click "Add or Remove Programs".
4) Select "McAfee Security Center".
5) Click "Remove" and follow any on-screen prompts.

If you are not able to completely remove McAfee from your system by following the above steps, you can consider using McAfee Consumer Product Removal (MCPR) tool to uninstall the application successfully. To know more about MCPR, you can refer to "Download and run the McAfee Consumer Product Removal (MCPR) tool" section on the following link:

Order NoVAB46113535 Ref Serial No VJDFRRC2C4YQ Dear Sir. My Subscriptions to Norton Internet Security [3 user] was renewed on February 22nd 2010. Can you please inform me of the 3 user statement does this...


As i researched the 3 user subscription refers to max 3 pcs per house. There shouldn't be extra payment and I strongly suggest to contact Norton directly and ask for refund or explanation. I also suggest that you must not let anyone link automatically to your bank account and charge you. Do your purchases one by one. I hope you are not scammed through email! Hope that helped!!

Message says my subscription has expired? I purchased Internet Security from Nortons on 12/7/07 why has it expired? It appars I am no longer protected and do not understand why this is.


Most of the Norton antivirus comes with one year subscription. date u mentioned here seems like more then 1 year old. That's why it says expired
If you dont want to spend any more money on antivirus then uninstall this one and download AVG from this site. this is really good antivirus for free and good for ever.

You will need to contact McAfee support either by e-mail or online chat. I find that on-line support gets things resolved faster that a e-mail

Have whatever information about the purchase ready when you contact McAfee support.

Hello,

What a nightmare.

Good old McAfee at it again. Do a Google search for Mcafee contact phone numbers and call in directly.

Or go to bbbonline.org and search for McAfee and you should find contact info there. Explain your problem and get a higher up to solve this for you by using these phone numbers.

Please do not rate this, I'm only guiding you, unless it does lead to a fix for you. Which may take a while.

Glad to help you get started here. I'm not looking or asking you to rate this, in fact I'd rather you didn't as there is no fix just a method of getting your answers you deserve as a subscriber to McAfee.

Regards,
Worldvet
