    Uninstall McAfee and install AVAST. Not only is it better, it's free.

    That's obviously your choice, but you will find that McAfee is very intrusive, slow to work and uses a lot of your resources.

    This might interest you.....

    Avast does a live scan. Which means it scans all files all the time. It constantly scans all your files, even hidden ones, for viruses. McAfee only scans certain ones and looks for viruses that are on its definition list.

    So while Avast scans all files that you download, emails you send and everything else. McAfee just checks the registry and a few other places for changes.

    In my experience Avast has done more good than anything. McAfee is nothing but trouble. I have seen more people with viruses because of McAfee. It is just a slow scanner and it doesnt fully-scan your system till it is forced to. Even that takes hours to accomplish.
    Like I said, your choice. Good luck!
