Installation problem with Windows 8 and Internet security 2013
I am experiencing a problem when installing Internet security 2013 on a Asus x550c laptop with Windows 8. The problem is that after the product is installed, Wifi and LAN device drivers are unavailable and the peripherials don't work.
The laptop has the McAfee anti-virus product pre-installed, and Internet security 2013 is the first program to be installed on the machine (now in its factory state).
After starting the installation it appears to go on smoothly until it starts removing the McAffee product, where it appears to hang at 60% completion. The installation stops here for at least 1-2 hours. After a manually forced reboot the installation continues as if nothing would have happened, and tells that the installation was successful. However, the Wifi and LAN drivers are not loaded anymore, and wifi and LAN will not work. Device manager shows yellow exclamation marks.
I did not get Wifi back until I reverted the machine to factory defaults.
The affected drivers are:
Qualcomm atheros ar9485wb-eg
Realtek PCIe GBE family controller
