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

My pavilion dv7 17" won't allow me to install mcafee anti virus


Before you can do anything, uninstall norton antivirus, go to control panel and click on it, a list of items will come up, when norton shows select remove and wait for the program to uninstall, and restart the computer, go back in and remove norton live update and any other program pertaining to norton. If you have windows 7 go to my computer and "click" on top select uninstall, and follow the outline above. Now you should be able to install the program.

Hi dula info...
Do a system restore to your computer and bring it back to a date when it was operating before you installed avastifree antivirus.
Follow these directions to do a system restore.
Click on Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore...pick a date before you install Advast, use any of the dark dates, as long as it was before installing Advast.

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!

The person who installed this k9 protection didn tell the password neither i know his mail adress to uninstall ...........plz guide me ways to uninstall


K-9 Anti-Virus is a Malware/Virus program....read below and follow the link to download and run MalwareBytes Anti-Malware tool....

K9 protection along with Malware of other similar names is everywhere and it is hard to scrub from the system. There is however one program that has been doing the job very well. The program is free to download and use and is called Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Tool. When you click on the link below, click on the download button. Run the installation program and when it is finished it will ask to both update and run the application, check both boxes and hit ok. Once the program updates, its main window will come up, choose quick scan and start the scanner. Once the program has finished the scan it will notify of all infections it has found. Choose to show results, all infections will be shown and checked for deletion. Delete all files it finds and reboot the system. The system should now be clean of all malware.

Hi, i've recently bought an acer aspire one running windows 7. it came with a trial version of McAfee. I uninstalled this and put on Norton 360 which i bought at the same time. Now the pc won't boot up so...


McAfee?? this product you need to check how to totally remove it from your netbook because it will block most of the other anti virus. Consider as business strategy, so that end user just use this anti virus, rather than other.
