    I am presently using McAfee VirusScan 6.0 with Zone Alarm as my Firewall.

    I understand that McAfee VirusScan 7.0 comes with the McAfee Firewall which I don't want to use. If I upgrade to ver 7.0 can I prevent the Firewall from being installed or disable it afterwards?

    Thanks, Alan

    Yea you have the choice, i think either during setup or afterwards but you can run the AV without the firewall for sure.

    Your settings will however be lost on the upgrade because you have to remove 6 before installing 7 it wont do a auto upgrade which sucks, just FYI if you didnt know.

    Thanks for the info. I have heard about that it is necessary to uninstall version 6.0 before installing version 7.0. The main thing is to avoid the McAfee Firewall as being no guru in this area I need to keep things simple!
