I dealt with the same thing you cannot uninstall it from the control panel right? if so do a file search and click search everything and manually delete the files that it brings up some of them will not delete but they don't matter mcafee will still install

Mcafee how to install


First, uninstall Norton. You can't run both. Then download & run the Norton Removal Tool... http://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/norton_removal_tool.html
Then, you can download Mcafee by clicking "Free Trial" below the "Buy Now" button here... http://home.mcafee.com/store/internet-security
Put your McAfee key in, either during the install, or after the install.

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, 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.

We have recently upgraded our Norton 360 - it


I wouldn't recommend installing McAfee as this can also slow down machines. Norton is notorious for this. Download AVG free Anti-Virus or Avast Anti-Virus & a firewall such as Zonealarm. Anti-spyware software is also a good idea. Spybot Search & Destroy & Adaware are good. If the computer is in a corporate environment you must purchase the software as the free licence only covers home use. Uninstall Norton when you have downloaded the programs & before you attempt to install the new programs.
