Centrino dual core laptop, 3 GB, lots of empty C space, XPPro service pack 3
McAfee said that I needed to reinstall the Comcast McAfee Security Suite to resolve McAfee problems*. The McAfee download site lists incompatible /uninstall software prior to McAfee Suite reinstall. The incompatible list includes Ad-Aware.
- Do I need to uninstall Ad-Aware free version (I believe it doesn't run except when manually started) before installing McAfee Suite?
- Will I have conflicts between the re-installed McAfee and Ad-Aware 22.214.171.124? If so, how do I resolve?**
- Will upgrading to Ad-Aware Plus and Ad-Watch after reinstalling McAfee cause conflicts?
Thank you for your help.
*Problem I had with McAfee was occurring when using their file backup utility.
**I noted the forum topic on Ad-Aware scanning McAfee files and the suggestion to go to "Services". I shut down Ad-Aware and clicked on the Ad-Aware services.exe which presented a blank DOS screen. ???)
