I'm running OSX10.9.5 but told this is not enough?

Can someone help please? I'm an oldie and not good at this stuff. Had a Dell with McAfee installed a couple of years ago but seems to have lapsed. Since got my hands on a MacBook Pro running OSX10.9.5 with 4GB memmory but the message I get from my new purchase of McAfee tonight is that I need an upgrade. They also want me to install Windows Explorer. Does this sound right? Or is it getting tangled up with my old system? I have downloaded onto the MAC.

Thanks for any pointers.

Dear Louise,

Thank you for contacting McAfee Support.

As I understand you need help installing McAfee on MAC.

I see you have two products.

1. Double check that you have the latest MAC OS updates.

2. Please, contact McAfee support to refund McAfee LiveSafe 

3. You need to install McAfee Total Protection on all your devices.

Hello @baffled

Mac security software installs only on supported versions of macOS or OS X 10.10 and above. If you have an older/unsupported version of the operating system you must update your macOS to latest version.

For More Information please go through KB TS102471
