Whatever you decide you will have to uninstall the Comcast branded version the normal way via Control Panel/Add or Remove Programs (XP) or Programs/Uninstall a Program (Vista/Windows 7) then run the MCPR removal tool available via Useful Links at the top of this page and reboot, Then you can install new protection.
ok, thanks for your answer, after trying to unistall mcafee last time i am very worried about my computer crashing again and not being able to fix it. I guess I can't just upgrade with a serial number or something like other progs so I'm gonna have to do something else unless i just keep the comcast mcafee installed the way it is, the firewall and scanner still works, it seems the only difference is it doesn't do scheduled scans.(?) It just seems like it really messed up my computer when i tried to uninstall it and still wasn't able to uninstall it at all because it's still on my computer because i had to end up restoring my computer to a time before i tried to uninstall it.
If i installed another version of mcafee on the computer without uninstalling the expired one would that cause problems?
Again, thanks for your answer.
It could cause problems yes.
While the Comcast version firewall will still work, it will not receive any DAT updates and the Comcast version will not be adequate for protecting your system. I suggest you get some new security software installed as soon as possible. You should have received information from McAfee prior to the expiration date of the Comcast version giving you some options. Hope this helps.
