I just recently downloaded the trial for Webroot Secure Anywhere because McAfee kept on turning off my firewall and virus scanner (caused by a trojan), so I installed Webroot trial, and it worked flawlessly on taking out 4 trojans in my computer.
My question is, should I leave McAfee installed or should I uninstall it?
By experience, I knew that installing another antivirus should disable your previous one, but McAfee is still running.
McAfee Suite was free from ATT, and it was a pretty horrible antivirus. It did great at first, but later on, it started turning off firewall / virus scanner on its own.
I can do justice by removing it?

Not sure what you are apologising for? Cannot see any reason for you to have to? :D
If you are still running MSE whilst running WSA then I would humbly suggest that yo deactivate MSE...it will not really be helping and may give you false positives. IMHO you only really need WSA.
It's little voice sorry but I agree McAfee is like a virus it fights against the Microsoft products. I had it 2 yrs. ago then I went to Microsoft Essentials that is free firewall/virus protection. But of course we all want Webroot instead.
Thanks for everything.
Your post actually transitioned my next question flawlessly.
WSA firewall is on, but my Windows firewall is off. I've been trying to turn it on, but I keep on getting the error 0x80070422. Any experience on that by any chance?
In my Opinion remove McAfee as WSA will protect you much better here is a list of AV removal tools just use the one to remove McAfee and if you have any other questions feel free to ask! Also you must use Windows Firewall or a Third Party Firewall along with WSA please see here: http://www.webroot.com/En_US/SecureAnywhere/PC/WSA_PC_Help.htm#C4_Firewall/CH4a_ManagingFirewall.htm
