Did you uninstall your old McAfee software first? You need to before installing a new AV software.

I use "SuperAntispyware" along with Malwarebytes, as recommended here at TSG a number of times. The programs work in different ways and complement each other. Also, I highly recommend "SpywareBlaster," which runs in the background and prevents spyware in its extensive data base from getting in in the first place.

Another very valuable program is "WinPatrol," which alerts to potential system alterations and also provides info re running applications, services, startups, etc.
