I recently installed McAfee 8.5.0i on my system . Someone just gave this copy to me (I haven't purchased it ) & it actually runs ! While installing , Under "Select Access Protection Level" , there were 2 Options - Standard Protection & Maximum Protection . I chose the Maximum Protection . After installing McAfee , my System takes more time to start than it used to take prior to installing McAfee . How do I check whether there is (1) any setting I need to check in McAfee (2) or whether McAfee takes up more Memory than my P.C. can handle or (3) whether a Virus is causing the slowdown ?

If you have partially uninstalled your program, you see a message from Revo, that it can't find the uninstaller, hit Cancel & let Revo continue on, to search for the remnants.
