I guess it all depends on how many of the features you intend to use. When installing one can choose a custom install and not install stuff you don't want. In my case it was Anti-Spam and Family Protection. Doing that you may be able to dodge the minimum requirements handily. I guess it's a case of trial and error. If it works, it works....excuse the mixed metaphors.
Just wanted to clarify if your tablet is running Android.
Noticed that you mentioned its a Windows tablet. Try installing it and see if it goes well. If not Support is always there to help.
I tried installing LiveSafe and I got an error pretty early in the process saying I did not meet the minimum memory requirement. I did not have this issue a couple of years back when installing Total Protection.
I will try the idea of minimizing the number of features I select to install and see if that helps, but I get the impression something has changed in terms of how they support low-memory windows tablets in the last couple of years.
You're probably right but good luck anyway.
Using the Anti-Virus only product would have been a good suggestion,
I was starting to think about what other anti-virus products are out there and if I should switch, but it is obviously easier to run the same product on all my systems.
In the meantime events overtook me. The screen on my tablet stopped working, and I believe a repair would cost more than the tablet is worth, so i think it is time to buy a new tablet with >= 2GB of memory, which will also solve my McAfee problems.
Before the tablet broke I had a brief phone call with McAfee support. I asked if I could get around the 2GB limit by doing a custom install and choosing only a few features and they said no.
Interesting, thanks for posting back. I guess you could mark this thread answered?
