Re: Unable to install McAfee virus scan 2008 in windows 7

Apparently your system has been infected by a virus prior to the installation of the mcafee anti virus and hence you are not able to install the antivirus on your system. You have not mentioned whether you cleanly installed windows 7 or you have upgraded your system from one of its previous version. So it will be better to help you.

Most probably this error appears when you have a different antivirus program installed on your system. So firstly check for another antivirus installed on your system if there exists an operating system then please remove it so that you will be able you install the desired antivirus on your windows 7 operating system.

As far as i know the mcafee virus scan 2008 is not supported in windows 7. and hence i would suggest you to install another antivirus such as AVG or Kapersky as they are the only two I am aware of at this time that are compatible with windows 7. Or else you can try to install the laest version of the mcafee antivirus.
