      Mcafee? / CD issues?

      Hi,

      Just got Sky unlimited.

      The CD seems to do nothing at all - okay not quite true but it errored several times - finally managed to run through it. It got as far as the wireless and then just closed???

      How do I install the Mcafee software?

      Do I really need the CD?

      I would stress that we are due to be cut over today at some point and it has not gone live yet, but when I go to the Ip of the router 192.168.0.1 it times out. (I am accessing it wireless ).

      Thanks in advance.

      Lots on here say not to bother with the CD.

      You need to right click on the drive icon that you have the disk in and click on explore, or there should be in the list autoplay.

      The CD causes a lot of issues for customers it would seem. Alternatively, go onto sky.com, on the left hand side go to 'security centre' and from there you should see mcafee listed. Click on it and click 'download here' I believe. It'll lead you through the installation.

      That's if you want to use it at all. There are better alternates available.

      I would explain those alternatives a bit better, but I'm out to get liquored! I'll let the other fellas chime in, but I would advise avira antivir.

      As mentioned Avast5, there is also Avira and Microsoft Security Essentials. The last is rated as the top free application in a recent CS test.

      Avast - Avast Free Antivirus - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com

      Avira - Avira AntiVir Personal - Free Antivirus - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com

      MSSE - http://www.microsoft.com/security/products/mse.aspx
