Was surprised to find that i have AVG 7.5 and McAfee VirusScan both running. Could someone tell me how i can stop McAfee running please. Thanks

if you have 2 anti virus programs running, they will clash, as one will think the other is malware, you should uninstal one of them. 1 firewall, 1 av, and a couple of anti spyware should work fine

First things first:

You say AVG 7.5,now is this the AVG antispy program,if so its ok but if AVG need to uninstall one of the products immediately as you are certain of conflicts.

you will corrupt your windows if you carry one, and probably not be fully protected until you remove one.

I thought i had got rid of McAfee but i have now found that it is running VirusScan and Firewall. I have looked in the Add/Remove Section but can't find any mention of it, so where or how do i find and get rid of it please!

Have done a search for McAfee on the computer and have come with one entry in the ProgramData folder. But i can't find this folder in order to stop McAfee from running before getting rid of it?

Try reinstalling Mcafee and then use the removal tool or its own uninstaller.


Try the removal tool in safe mode.

To remove all entries in Mcafee suite,it needs to be removed in the correct order.
