    New laptop / antivirus help pls? 10th Sep 17 at 9:57 AM
    Hi all, I have a new laptop, which had a free trial of Mcafee antivirus. This expired last week, with an offer to renew for 40.

    After reading Martins advice I have now installed Panda antivirus for free.
    Do I now delete the other Mcafee antivirus (I'm not too good with computers) If I am to delete this, can you tell me how?
    I'd be so grateful for any advice.

    Yes, only have one antivirus programme installed as they can conflict with each other.

    To uninstall - assuming Windows 10 - hold down the Windows flag key and X key >>> click on Control Panel >>> click on Uninstall a Programme >>> delete Mcafee.
