How do you think that we would know as we are avast users (personal/home users) unless some company uses the enterprise.

I can't believe you are even considering an AV that is effectively 5-6 years old and may or may not be able to get signature updates so any investigation in my opinion is wasted effort.

Hi...

I agree with David that it's unlikely an AV this old is still supported. If you wish to keep using McAfee, you should choose which solution is best for you here. If not, there are many to choose from. ;)

However, before you install a replacement, you should uninstall what you have currently with McAfee's MCPR utility.

God bless :)

Well I got the computer back with the program installed, I didn't expect it to be good. Another problem I'm having is that some windows componets were disabled, things such as windows paint, Calculator, ect. Do you guys know how to get back things like MS paint and Calculator? I've tried installing them from an windows CD although the only one I have is an Dell reinstall disk, I' ve managed to start it although it does not reconize the CD but it can start it?  ???

Hi...

Did the restore CD you mentioned come with the computer in question? If not, don't use with that system!

You might be able to install MS Paint and Calculator by using the instruction listed here if you're using Vista. :)

God bless :)
