My laptop is new and came with McAfee on it, and I used the free 90-day trial on my computer. The subscription is now up, and I want to download new antivirus protection. When I download the new one, do I have to worry about it conflicting with McAfee, or do I have to worry about deleting it? If so, how?
you need to start pc in safe mode then go to add/remove programs and un install all mcafee software one by one then reboot pc in normal mode again then install new anti-virus program. mcafee has to be removed in safe mode so it's not running anything.
Never delete a program remove it by going to add/remove programs in control panel.
yes you need to remove McAfee before installing a new Internet Security software.
Before downloading new anti-virus you must uninstall another anti-virusprogram,otherwise there will be definitely a conflict.
To uninstall go Start / Control Panel / Add or Remove Programs.
you need to go to the mcafee website and download their removal tool to get rid of it,mcafee is bloated rubbish
first installll another antivirus then try its unistalllation you can find free anti virus from site
