The latest version is Windows 8 compatible but may not have reached the servers for your area yet.  Where are you installing from - a CD or an online McAfee account?

If the latter, uninstall whatever is there now and then go to your account page and, if you don't mind an English language interface, change your country at the top right to either Australia, USA, Canada or the UK and download from their servers as they got it first.

The one supplied by Dell is probably quite old.  Does the CD offer an online installation option, they sometimes do?   In which case you would install that way from an online account, which you may yet have to create of course.

http://home.mcafee.com is the base for the accounts plus products etc. (top right).

There's no such thing unfortunately but have you tried asking Technical Support for advice on this?   It's free by phone or online chat and linked through Useful Links at the top of this page.

If your linked in that system using a proxy server then I doubt the software would work anyway as it wont be able to update either but they can advise you on that.

Following an email invitation (seemingly from Microsoft), I just bought Windows 8 Pro for AUS$39.99.

During the digital install, it has asked my to manually uninstall the McAfee Internet Security Suite.

Should I do this? Or is this a hoax? What shall I do, ask for a refund?

Please help.

Yes best to uninstall all 3rd party security software whenever a system change is needed as in an upgrade, or even a service pack installation for instance.

Gee! Thanks Ex-Brit, I'll do it after work later today.

I thought I'd be the fool if I didn't at least run it by someone - you are great.
