Can't install McAfee Security Software

Go to solution

Hi guys

 

It gets as far as telling me about conflicts, but just before windows says there's a problem with the installer. I've removed security software, but keep getting this message. I've tried about five times, any help would be appreciated. Also I'm getting half the speed. 

 

Any help would be appreciated.

McAfee doesnt like Malwarebytes when doing an install.

 

If there was other AV software on before Norton for e.g, have you run the Norton removal tool [or the tool for any other AV software]

I've used the uninstall programs function to remove all security software, I've just downloaded the Norton Software Tool, that was on the laptop originally. I'll report back

To completely remove Norton (etc) you have to dig deeper than uninstall it. Programmes removal tool should do the trick. Boot up afterwards and install and run CCleaner via file hippo website to tidy the registry up.

Maybe something nasty is on the pc preventing installation. Pop ms essentials on for a while. Do a full scan and run malware, spybot etc.

I had exactly this issue and in the end wiped everything and reinstalled windows.

Tedious. But it solved it.

I'll give it a go, I've just used the AVG removal tool.

I'll pop back once I've done that, likely to be tomorrow.

Hi Allan

 

O.K. After using the AVG Removal Tool , it stated that AVG might have conflicts with the McAfee, I had uninstalled it and also used the AVG Removal Tool as well as CC, I skipped it, McAfee is installed now. Thanks for your help. Now need to sort out speed issue, only receiving half of what I should.
