windows 11 update destroyed McAfee

windows 11 update destroyed McAfee. I had to uninstall McAfee and reinstall it. 

Is there a war between Bill Gates and McAfee?

Re: windows 11 update destroyed McAfee

Hi @jdaniel0,

Sorry for this inconvenience caused.

We would like to inform you that McAfee is compatible with windows 11 as well. 

Having a security software already working on the device , if we perform an OS update, there are chances where Local system permission may conflict with antivirus functionality which we can resolve by re-installing the antivirus software. 

Therefore we suggest always have a backup of your software before performing an OS update/upgrade.


Kindly respond with a Kudos if this information is helpful to you by any means.

Thanks for the answer. However, it is the first time I have a conflict with McAfee and Windows 11 update.

All the previous ones which were many, did not produce any problem.
