it is possible that the beta version of mcafee might support 8.1 maybe when 8.1 in the beta release but Macfee products do normally not support betas and preview releases of windows.
I will ask but the beta manager is away till the 12th
thanks a lot for the kind and fast reply. Let's see ...
It's been McAfee's policy for years not to support anything beta, whether OS's or software. That's their official stance. but let's see what Tony's request brings in a couple of days, hopefully.
In my experience it's pot luck really, if it works, it works, if it doesn't well, that's to be expected. Until such time as you have an answer you should enable Windows Defender as that has built-in antivirus in Windows 8.
Good luck ;-)
Thanks, Ex_Brit, for your hopefully hints. Bubber
Word is that our beta edition should have support for 8.1 soon.
Beta has it's own private section in these forums and is supported there only, or via a bug reporting system.

Of course once 8.1 is officially released then it will be fully supported by the regular software.
thanks again! As far as I know the official win 8.1 will be released in August. So I can wait for the update version of the internet security.
