Security, Antivirus, Can I install McAfee VirusScan when my computer has other antivirus software?

I need to install McAfee VirusScan. I already have another antivirus program, such as Norton or Symantec, on my compter. Can I still install McAfee?

It it not recommended to have two or more antivirus programs on the same computer. Before you install McAfee VirusScan, make sure that no other antivirus software is on your computer.

Go to the "Control Panel" - > "Add/Remove Programs" and make sure Norton or Symantec are not listed. If they are, then remove them. When you have no other antivirus software installed, then it is safe to install McAfee VirusScan.
