Security Question


Just downloaded McAfee Total Protection. While processing it asked me to uninstall Microsoft Security Essential (I think that was it), I did not do  this. Everything is working fine, but should I do it now?

Thank you,

Re: Security Question

Hi Hillery,

It is very dangerous to run 2 Anti Viruses at once,

It could cause System Instability.

You should remove it via Add/Remove Programs or Programs and features.

Re: Security Question

Hi hilery ,

We do not recommend running multiple antivirus software at a same time, the reason just being they might have conflicts later on during an update or running a scan. This even would impact the performance of the machine if it doesn’t have adequate system requirements. Moreover, if you do not have any issues you could carry on.
