    Installing Internet Security 2009 on Windows 7

      Hello.  I have a copy of Internet Security 2009 which has never been opened or installed on a PC.  I am currently trying to setup a new laptop with Windows 7 and wanted to try to install the software, however it appears that it is not compatible and Windows 7 will not let me install the software.  Upon further review I have found that you must have version 9.11 or greater in order to install.  Is there a file that I can download that would allow me to install off of this CD or that I could place in a directory with the CD inorder to properly install this product?

            I did try installing it.


            The error I received was that it was an incompatible version.  It then prompted me to search for a solution on teh web.  The initial result was information about the back up not working in Win7 iof upgrading from Vista, but upon further research I found that the CD must have an older install file, pre 9.11 .

              Moved to Internet Security Suite 11 - 2009


              Dinz, if you recall a while back there was a patch made available to allow installation of consumer products from older CD's on Vista.  Is there any such patch for Windows 7?

                The best way to install is to Run the McAfee Download Manager in compatibility mode in

                Windows Vista, SP1 or SP2.



                Step 1: Copy the entire CD contents to a Folder . Right click the 'Autorun' or 'CD Setup' & select 'Troubleshoot Compatibility'.



                Step 2: Click Next or the Advanced option



                Step 3 : Select Troubleshoot Program



                Step 4 : Select 'The Program worked in earlier version of Windows but won't install or run now'.



                Step 5 : Select Windows Vista [Service Pack 1 or 2] & Click Next


                Step 4: Select 'Run Program or start program' . Download Manager should now continue.



                Running the Download Manager or CD Setup with 'Administrator rights' still works on Windows 7.
