  • Remove Security Products 

If other security products are installed on your computer, uninstall them following their recommended removal steps to avoid potential conflicts or reduced performance issues. Removing them will help prevent unnecessary conflicts as well as performance degradation.

  • Check for Older McAfee Security Products

If an older McAfee product installed on your computer that matches that found on its CD is identical, keep it installed – the installer should detect an older version, bypass its installation, and allow you to renew. However, if it differs significantly, remove both versions before installing the one from the CD.
