McAfee Problems

After reading the review for Zone Alarm I decided to try Zone Alarm. So when I went in to take McAfee off I followed the direction like it said but it still comes up on my computer I went to their website and it told me to re install it and try again and it still isn't off. Any Suggestions

Cacross, More Information Please

In reply to: McAfee Problems

What is the operating system you are using and which version of McAfee are you using?

McAfee and ZoneAlarm produce a number of products....

Which version of ZoneAlarm are you using? The free Firewall ONLY or the the full ZoneAlarm suite that uses an antivirus and a firewall?

McAfee Virus Scan only? McAfee Security Suite? McAfee Security Center only? McAfee firewall only?

For McAfee, RIGHT click on the red "M" in the lower right corner, choose "Virus Scan", select "About" and give me the "version/build number" plus the "scan engine" version and the "Virus Definitions" version numbers.

Hope this helps and let us know more.
