Kindly click on the below link and perform the steps to uninstall the spybot search and destroy.
Restart the computer
Try to download the Mcafee products
I followed the instructions on that page and McAfee still says I need to remove Spybot. I also tried reinstalling Spybot and removing it again but that did not help. I also removed the Spybot entries from the registry. After several restarts, McAfee still asks me to remove Spybot and it will not continue to install.
Go to Start/Run and enter regedit hit the Enter key.
HKEY LOCAL MACHINE/SOFTWARE/MICROSOFT/WINDOWS/CURRENTVERSION/UNINSTALL
Find any Spybot or Safer-Networking key, delete this key, close the Registry Editor and try the installation again.
Be careful to only delete those keys.
I can't thank you enough. I deleted that registry key and McAfee's installation continued right away. After installation it never prompted me to register and my account said I was expired. When I right clicked on the McAfee tray icon and clicked on Product Setup, nothing happened. So I searched the forum and found this topic: http://forums.mcafeehelp.com/showthread.php?t=226700&highlight=register
Now everything is working and my account has the correct expiration date. You can move this to the solved board if you would like.
Thank you again!
Glad you are OK now.
