I am using McAfee Livesafe on my computers, and i am a satisfied customer,....no problems.
But i want to do a fresh install on my Dell machine.....it has become a little bit "dirty" and i want a new start.
Last year i installed Superantispyware and Malwarebyte, just to be safe.....i thought.
Now i ask myself....is it really necessary? Or is it "overkill" ??
Can you give me an advice?
Do a fresh install and install these programs again? Together with my McAfee program?
As long as your McAfee Software is Current /Active/Up to date. It is not necessary to have to re-install Malewarebytes (Free)/Super Anti-Spyware..should you choose to remove to clean up disk space. They are a "Compliment" to your McAfee Software.
In addition, if your McAfee Software is functioning properly. You can still simply (Uninstall) programs you deem unnecesarry/taking up disk space, with out doing a clean Uninstall/Reinstall of McAfee. However, if you still wish to do a fresh install.
Just Make certain you remove from your Control Panel/Programs Features First/Restart. The run the Latest MCPR Tool/Restart
Then of course go to your individual account and re-install.
All the best,
Thank you for the information.
I uninstalled the two programs en i am going to use quickclean more often. McAfee is up to date, so lets see how things go!
