Installation and Upgrade of an old version

Hi, I've recently bought Mcafee Internet security 2006 (v8). Is it possible and how can I upgrade it to the last version 2010? My OS is windows7: can I install Mcafee IS 2006 on my os windows7 before upgrading, or is it better to download the trial version of Mcafee IS 2010 and then activate this one with the activation code of the old version?

Re: Installation and Upgrade of an old version

Gees that is old there is no way version 6 of security centre will install on win 7 only security centre 9.15 or higher is compatible.

You do need to contact customer service here

via chat and see what they say.

Good luck

PS when you find out please let me know in case others try this path.
