    Hi Maria, Can you tell us the exact problem you have with the software ?



    Do you have a serial number to enter into the software?



    If the software came with your laptop then i imagine that it is just a trial software and that you will have to now pay for a serial number to activate and therefore carry on using the software



    Regards



    Carl

Thats True, its probably a trial, but heres some actual help.

Remove Mcaffe all together, un-install that crappy software, never think about it again. It uses way to much resources from your computer and it bugs you every mintute with something.


Heres the good part.

Go to GRISOFT.COM
in the search field at the top, do a search for AVG FREE
select the first link that says AVG FREE EDITION FOR WINXP/VISTA.

Scroll down and look to the left next to the Check marks.

Slect the download for the free version.

when the screen opens, click the download version 8.0 and when its done, install it and run the updates.

Its all easily installed and requires little on your part. Its a completely Free with no adds or junk, Anti virus.

I have used them for 8 years and have never regreated it.

They design Network Server anti Virus software but have the free version for personal computer. Its great and it runs smooth and discreet in the taskbar. Any other questions, let me know.

heres the direct link if it makes it easier.

I have a HP Pavilion laptop that the McAfee anti virus has expired went and brought McAfee Livesafe but I must have a virus as cannot get onto download part of site


The one AV program is protecting itself for the other AV program. You can't have two on a machine at the same time. Uninstall it and go the McAfee site and look for their uninstall tool which removes the final bits that are hidden.

You know Microsoft Windows Defender is free?

Features of McAfee Antivirus


<p>McAfee anti-virus features include anti-virus, anti-spyware tools, firewall software to protect your pc from all type of viruses and threats over the network. McAfee bundles a lot of features into its antivirus. Besides the classical protection features found in most antivirus products, McAfee also integrates a Silent Full Screen feature, which stops all antivirus notifications from being displayed while full screen applications are running, so it won't interfere with your work. The Secure File Shredder feature is another useful feature, which will allow you to permanently and totally delete confidential files, without leaving any traces of them and eliminating all recovery possibilities. It is also optimized for laptops, by integrating a battery-saving mode that will leave intensive scans that require more power and resources for later, when your laptop is plugged into an electricity source.<br /> <p> <br> <p>Some other features are "on access file scanner" - you can access the files while scanning them, "inbound and outbound firewall protection" - to monitor your incoming and outgoing traffic over the network, it can block any suspicious connection that can harm your computer, " spyware protection" - to detect and remove spywares in order to protect your pc and your personal data from hackers, " daily definition update "- this will help your protection software to have the most recent updated virus database, so that it can prevent newly added malicious codes spreading in your pc. Some other features are " McAfee X-Ray rootkit detection " this feature will detect rootkits and remove them, "McAfee Site Advisor " - displays a safety rating for websites based on tests for evidence of spam, malware and phishing, and " McAfee System Guards" - monitors a computer for activity that may be caused by virus infection or hacker activity.

I am afriad that I have virus on my laptop actually i do not have any serious anti virus on it.


Most of the bigger Anti Virus makers have free online scanners that can let you know if you have a problem. Try Symantec, McAfee, etc. Also google "free online virus scan". (I would only trust the big name companies, though.) I believe Symantec will even clean any problems that you may have.

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

COMPUTER HAS A VIRUS


A firewall will just block any access to the Internet incoming and Outgoing, that is not allow by the User, You. Putting a Firewall will assist with not getting any further Viruses, But Not with removing, However if your Mcafee comes with a Firewall and an anti-virus, This would work. You can also Goto Symantec.com or Mcafee and they have free On-line Virus scanners and you can atleast know what your Dealing with. From there Symantec has Virus removal tools for specific viruses. I do however recommend an Anti-virus software, Something like Kaspersky would do you wonders
