My personal McAfee is expiring and I want to install the Cox Security Suite. Anyone have any experience with the Cox Security Suite versus McAfee Total Security package? I am assuming I have to uninstall McAfee first before installing the Cox version. Correct?
Actually, they are BOTH Mcafee, and the installer actually calls the correct program's uninstaller and runs it to uninstall ANY prior security program. If you have Norton, the Mcafee installer uses the Norton uninstaller info found in the registry, as well as control panel, to perform the uninstall, as well as any other security program. Since the uninstall of security software requires a reboot, the system requests a reboot, and then upon restart, completes running the installer and installs Mcafee.,
