    Do I need to uninstall Trial McAfee LiveSafe before installing McAfee Internet Security

    joshlau

      My question is whether it is necessary to uninstall the McAfee LiveSafe trial which is ending (preinstalled from Acer), before i subscribe to McAfee Internet Security product?

       

      From the guide it says: "IMPORTANT: If your McAfee products were pre-installed by your computer manufacturer, ensure that you activate your McAfee subscription before you uninstall them. Re-installing from a CD or download installs only your McAfee home user applications, but might not recover your paid subscription term information."

       

      Not clear if the activate you McAfee subscription refers to the McAfee LiveSafe trial, or the McAfee Internet Security which I intend to install? Pls clarify. Thank you,

       

      Rgds,
