hi, i have had mcafee security centre on my pc since i've had it (my dell pc came with it couple of years back). but for the next 12months they are charging £39.99 for it! and my current one runs out in a few weeks time. obviously i feel this is a rip off but i'm used to using mcafee virus scan now so wouldnt mind keeping it. i've noticed certain places online and ebay etc sell 12months mcafee virus scan a lot cheaper.
the question i'd like answered is this - if i buy a mcafee virus scan 2008 from somewhere else will it conflict with my current version on my pc? do i need to delete my current version and then install my new one from scratch or can i just update my current mcafee already on my pc?
or maybe is it worth getting a totally new (free maybe?) type of anti virus?
If you do decide to keep mcafee, it is best to uninstall the old version first.click here However as GANDALF <|:-)> says Avg is a very good free antivirus. its just down to personal choice, i use mcafee and have done so for 4 years now. even when there are free programes out there. hth. bb66.
