Mcafee Virus Scan Professional Problem

  Mad Boy 20:19 18 May 2003

My offline copy of Mcafee Virus Scan Professional Problem, when I scan i scan C: drive i usually get a illegal operation error, so that means not only does the scan not finish but I have to terminate the program.

Any ideas to fix this are appreciated,

McAfee was the cause of all sorts of problems for me (as I've said here loads of times before).

What I did was to bin it and install AVG. No problems with that. click here

Do i have to get rid of it? It cost me money, and is this AVG free?

Oh forgot to mention, does it work in the way like McAfee?

I.E if i get a virus it instantly gives you options to remove, Quarantine etc

AVG is free. Whether you get rid of McAfee is up to you. Most certainly don't have both running at the same time so if you try AVG, uninstall McAfee first. If you don't like it, uninstall before you re-install (if you see what I mean;-))

Read all about AVG before you install. Comprehensive info on the site.

Many people here use it and are completely satisfied.
