My laptop keeps crashing. This happened when I installed McAfee Anti-Virus software and also was asked to install a program called Bonjour. My laptop now just works for 5 min before crashing and having to be switched off...what can I do?

    I have tried uninstalling McAfee but do not get that fair with the uninstall before the computer crashes. If I uninstall Itunes (assuming that I can do this before the computer crashes), will I lose my music?

I bought the MCafee Anti-Virus 2011 because my free trial had expired and i had a ton of malware , trojons ect. I registered but it will not install??


Sounds like whatever virus or malware you have on your laptop is keeping mcafee from being installed. Two suggestions for you is to try these other two programs out, they are both free:
Malwarebytes is located here. Try installing it, most of the time it will go thru.
Microsoft has there own malware tool located here. With this tool you download it and then just run it because it doesnt install.
If either of these tools find any viruses or malware, let it remove them. Now at this point reboot your computer and then try installing mcafee. At this point it should install. If it doesn't then there is something going on with windows. At that point I would call Mcafee because they might have to work in the windows registry to get it to take. Good Luck!

Macaffee antivirous is not working though it is valid upto May 2011


Try to repair the installation.

START > Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs
highlight the McAfee program - click on the "change/remove" button, and if there's an option
provided to repair the installation, select it.

In the absence of that option (every package is responsible to provide its own options), then
run the McAfee software from the desktop shortcut (icon), or

START > All Programs > McAfee

then find and run an option within this to "update" or "repair" your current McAfee installation.
Viruses will often attempt to damage anti-virus software installations or block access to
Symantec or McAfee web sites, so repairing anti-virus installations is commonly needed.

Go to the McAfee website and download their McAfee removal tool. By running this you will completely remove all of your McAfee software. You will then be able to install your Kapresky anti-virus.

Software trouble


Open the antivirus setting menu and disable the things that you dont need. IE crash is a common thing, mine also crashes. Firefox will be the best, install it.
or contact technical support.

My Mcafee anti-virus is about to finish,how do I install Advast free,do I download advast then uninstall/delete Mcafee then install advast free with Reg key. Thanx in advance !!!


Multiple anti-virus programs on a computer conflict with each other, as well as installation may fail when trying to install one Anti-virus program when another one is still on the computer.

Download Avast
Disable your internet connection, or unplug the ethernet cable
Uninstall McAfee
Install Avast
Hook your internet back up
Use your reg key and update Avast.

You just don't want an unsecured computer with an active internet connection even during the short period of time between uninstalling the old one and installing the new one

Anti virus


Definitely do not use more than one antivirus program. Using more than one can cause problems and is unnecessary.

To find your antivirus program there are several ways you can do this but you would need to know the name of the program you are looking for.

1) Click My Computer\C Local disk\Program Files
or
2) Click start\programs then look at all the installed software.

It is unlikely that you have two antivirus programs installed. If you do, I would strongly advise that you uninstall one.

It is important to keep your antivirus software and virus definitions up to date.

Respected programs are
Norton Antivirus
McAfee

Or free AVG Antivirus
