In most cases, you can still get older software to run in XP by using the Application Compatibility options, but because of the nature of AV software, it's extremely unlikely that it'll work.

You have two options here. The first would be to go out and buy the latest version of McAffee AV (which will work in XP) or try a freeware alternative, such as AVG Anti-Virus from www.grisoft.com
