Windows 7: Getting rid of McAfee

Getting rid of McAfee

I used IObit Uninstaller v2.1 to uninstall McAfee AVplus and Security Scan Plus from my computer. I was wondering if this would totally remove these programs? Also can anyone recommend good antivirus software that will not interfere with IObit Malware Fighter Pro? Thanks for any help.

Once you've gone through control panel > programs and features > uninstall to remove McAfee products, it's recommended that you follow-up by using the McAfee removal tool. You can find it on the Ultimate List of Uninstallers by Fred de Vries (item # 22a):

It's my understanding that IObit Malware Fighter Pro incorporates real time scanning. Many people (myself included) do not recommend running more than one real time scanner at a time. Very often the two scanners will see each other as a possible threat and slow a computer down. In extreme cases the computer could even crash. Rather than use another real time scanner I'd suggest you supplement your defenses with a free on-demand scanner like Malwarebytes, Hitman Pro, Superantispyware, etc.

I'm not a big fan of IObit, but that said, they say their Malware Fighter Pro is compatible with all AV products. In googling, I see Avast, Avira, and MSE recommended, much as you might find recommended here. A Guy
