Re: mcafee for xp installed on pc with vista

Do a safe mode start up and remove the antivirus that should get you up and going, also check in your properties and make sure your settings for going to sleep or hibernation are off, Safe mode should get you going also you can do a system restore to the day before all this happend. McAfee for xp will not work with vista. if you want a good free antivirus try Avast dot com. I sure hope you get it up and going if not let me know. Thank you

Upgrading windows vista to windows xp in presario 115DX

You cannot 'upgrade' Windows Vista to Windows XP - that is technically a 'downgrade' and would need you to save all your user data on Vista then format you Windows drive then do a clean install of Windows XP.

If you try to install XP over the top of Vista you will have lots of problems because of the difference in architecture and boot manager changes.

The only alternative would be to set up a dual-boot installation where you install XP alongside Vista but would be best done on either a separate disk partition or on a second disk. Normally such a dual-boot configuration would start with having XP installed then adding Vista as the second operating system.

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.
