McAfee Trial Version

Hi!

 

I purchased a Lenovo laptop with free McAfee antivirus (30 days trial version).

Now, the trial version is already expired.

Do I have to uninstall the McAfee antivirus and before I install a new antivirus?

Please help me.

 

Thanks,

aloysius

Re: McAfee Trial Version

aloysius, welcome to the forum,

 

yes you definitely should cpmpletely uninstall the trial version before installing another anivirus software. Having two different security softwares on a system can cause problems.

Hi Andy! Thank you for your reply.

Is it advisable to uninstall the pre-installed McAfee antivirus?

 

Thanks and regards.

Re: McAfee Trial Version

If you plan to install another anitvirus software other than McAfee it is advisable to uninstall the pre-installed McAfee.
