Hi,

 

Thank You very much for this clarification. Yes AV Security Suite is a stubborn software and needs some special means to get it removed from system. It stops execution of any exe programs. In your case for example when you are trying to install Mcafee its not allowing you.

 

It has certain steps and downloads to be done patiently to get rid of this. Please follow the article where the steps and the download is mentioned to get rid of the same.

 

http://www.2-viruses.com/remove-av-security-suite

 

First read the whole article and then do the downloads as mentioned then reboot the system and get into safe mode to get rid of it. Once its off your system you will have no problem installing Mcafee.

 

Thanks a lot.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
