This better be god sent. I have a dell desk top at home, 5 yr old. Used it with care. It is vista system based. Tried to install McAfee total protection plan and did not work at all. Uninstalled...


Normally windows vista no problem to communicate with any anti-virus software unless the software is damaged or not supported by windows vista so do not let it work. (If it really can work on vista, most likely operating system you use there is a problem)But do not worry, you still have many choices, for example try to use anti-virus or improve the problem in your operating system.
Hopefully this can help, thank you

I recommend to instal McAfee VirusScan for Mac. McAfee VirusScan for Mac includes detections for exploits, viruses, trojans, worms, and spyware that threatens Macs, PCs, and Unix systems. On access scanning provides realtime protection while drag and drop scanning facilitates a quick check of newly downloaded files.
