McAfee Anti-Virus

By whewitt ·
About two (2) years ago a friend of mine brought a P-200 from Fingerhut and the computer worked good untill last month, at which time the hard drive crashed. I replaced the hard drive for her and restalled everthing and the computer works fine, but there is a promble. Ever time I tried to put McAfee Anti-Virus on her machine, Windows locks up on boot-up. You can go reboot the computer and go into safe mode and uninstall McAfee and the computer will then boot-up and run. I have tried to call Fingerhut and ask them who made the computer but they will not tell us anything because they said that the computer is out of warrently. Can someone please help. Thank you ahead of time.I have installed the McAfee on my own computer and the program works fine, so it is not the program.

McAfee problem

by sdds4049 In reply to McAfee Anti-Virus

The problem you see with McAfee may affect her computer and not yours, so don/t rule it out. I had numerouse PC problems for 2 years until I finally had someone suggest it was my anti-virus program. A tech acquaintance recommended Grisoft's AVG virus scan - which is free, by the way. Ever since I removed the McAfee and installed the Grisoft AVG about 3 months ago, everything has run perfectly.

One McAfee Problem

by sunnybj In reply to McAfee problem

I had the same problem,I was lucky I found a McAfee version 4.0 but then I found out I could download it also from the net, but until I put in the McAfee 4.0 I had problems, once downloaded then I could update to the next grade. I love my McAfee andif you can find a 4.0 and install it then update it you shouldn't have a problem.
