How to Install McAfee Antivirus From CD
McAfee antivirus offers users a worry-free alternative for their security requirements whether surfing, email, and site protection apart from blocking online threats like viruses, Trojans, worms, and other malware infections. One is from the software CD that we’ve described here and the other is from the internet. Before we start with the installation process, we hereby assume you have a McAfee antivirus CD handy.
If you do not have one, you can call McAfee product service to send you one. You can even visit a McAfee-authorized computer center to find the installation disk. Besides, if you’re installing McAfee for the first time in your computer, do a few more things to be certain that McAfee runs correctly. If you had other antivirus software installed, remove it completely from your computer before installing the McAfee software. We await the automatic prompt.
The McAfee Security Setup window will come up. Hit the Next button to proceed. When no automatic prompt pops up, click on the Start menu and navigate to My Computer (Computer if it’s Windows 7 or Vista). Double-click on the removable CD drive icon such as E: or D:. It’ll fire up the McAfee installation disc. Click to accept the license agreement and hit the OK or Next (whatever you visit there) button to move to the next screen.
