Hi - can you please advise best option as a result of loading Adobe onto my laptop McAfee security scan plus loaded as well. I have noticed slower internet response now. Is McAfee compatible with Trend Micro and should it be left or removed. Any advise greatly appreciated thanks Dave.

@pragmatic Thanks for the references!

@davet400 As referenced above, PC security programs do not co-exist well, as having more than one security program usually result in a conflict where key security features won't work properly. Since you have a paid version of Trend Micro Internet Security with features more powerful than the free McAfee Security Scan Plus, we suggest removing McAfee software and use Trend Micro protection only.

You may refer on the link below to remove McAfee :

After the uninstallation of McAfee, please check if your internet runs faster. 

Please let us know if your question was answered. Thanks!
