Re: problem with installation of mcafee

Hi skelterweb,

             Welcome to the McAfee Communities. Just to clarify my thinking? Am I to assume you currently have "McAfee Internet Security" installed? Which is a "Consumer Version", and you are attempting to install "McAfee Security-as-Service?

               In otherwords, are you in a "Work environment" ? I might kindly add, that this particular Community does not offer assistance for "Support" in regards to McAfee Products. Hopefully someone will pick up this thread, and offer you further guidance.

              Which would in return, bring more attention to your issue. By posting in the appropiate area.

            If you need to "Uninstall" the mentioned above items, Proper steps and procedures can be found under my Signature, the first Link.

Wishing you all the very Best,

McAfee Volunteer

Re: problem with installation of mcafee

ok, thanks for the reply. I will do more attention next time.

in relation to my problem, the pre installed version has already been uninstalled by following the steps and using the software advised.

i'll try to fond a way to solve it.

but thanks anyway

Re: problem with installation of mcafee

Those steps as CD's sig shows are what you need to clear the consumer version Once that is done reboot and run reboot and then retry Mcafee

security as a service install or contact  chat maybe here

As CD said we here support questions on the consumer version so I will move this thread to the correct corporate area.
