Info on PCMatic and McAfee

Recommended Posts

Hi GinLee,

 

It's best to uninstall any and all other anti-virus programs prior to installing another.

 

McAfee has a removal tool that they recommend to get the job done:

 

McAfee Removal Tool: http://service.mcafee.com/FAQDocument.aspx?id=TS101331

or:  Direct Download: http://download.mcafee.com/products/licensed/cust_support_patches/MCPR.exe

No need to remove  SuperAntiSpywear

 

 SuperAntiSpywear is not an anti-virus program and is compatible with ours.

I installed McAfee recently and now I cannot locate PCmatic anywhere on my computer. The icon is still on my desktop, but when I attempted to locate the file program I cannot find it anywhere. I am clueless as to what to do. Do I have to download PCmatic again and start over?

Probably find MCaffe has deleted some of the registries for PC matic as they've popped up as 'false-positives' on it's scan and they've been quarantined.

 

I would run the tools Y's posted above to remove McAffe then download and re-install PC matic. It's never a good idea to have 2 AV solutions running in parallel they really won't play nicely!!
