McAfee Central app for Windows 10 [2018 Update]

The app has also received support for Windows 10 users so they can use it whithout any problems after upgrading from Windows 8, 8.1 to 10. The only problem that occurred after the update is that McAfee Central does not work as a standalone app. You might need to have McAfee LiveSafe and this might be a problem if you want another antivirus as the main antivirus.

You can always choose to use this app only as a system monitor for some of your system activities but it is not sure that it will work without McAfee LiveSafe.
