    Just need an educated opinion. My McAfee Security is due to expire in two weeks. When trying to renew, they won't accept my information, although I've checked it several times, and it is correct. I have no idea what is going on. Would it be better if I go to Staples and buy the program and install it myself, or try to somehow reach McAfee Customer Service and find out what's going on. I've spent a long time this morning trying to find out what the problem is, and I don't have much time to spare. Would certainly appreciate someone's input here.

    I agree. McAfee is a huge waste of space, money, and cpu power.

    After you uninstall even if it does not say so I would reboot the PC and then reboot a 2nd time and then install new program.

    If I may add... ESET Smart Security 5 is also a very good Anti-Virus program. Its really Nod 32 with its own Firewall included that in my opinion is far superior to the Windows Firewall.
