Re: Mcafee Antitheft product update

I'm having the same problem, and I also installed mine from the purchased CD.  I tried signing on and downloading using Mozilla and from Internet Explorer, neither worked.

Re: Mcafee Antitheft product update

I have exactly the same problem; the software came from DELL in a sealed DVD Box. BTW, the result (Error 404) is what I get trying to download a pdf guide to Total Protection 2009 - some links on the McAfee site seem to have unravelled?  Is there perhaps a correct URL we can go to for the update please?

Re: Mcafee Antitheft product update

I also have the same problem.  Originally installed from boxed CD of stand-alone program, purchased from local retail store.  The web-address the link is trying to access is:  http://download.mcafee.com/Molbin/secure/iss-loc/math/en-US/1.5.101/3/mat_1.5.101.3.exe?__gda__=1260...

See screen shots of messages in attached file.

Re: Mcafee Antitheft product update

And when I try to follow that link, I get another error: 403 - I am not allowed to visit that page!

Re: Mcafee Antitheft product update

Thanks for the screen shots and information, I'm looking into this and will keep you posted.

As a work around for now, are you able to sign into "My Account" at http://home.mcafee.com/  and download and install from there?

Re: Mcafee Antitheft product update

Those of us who bought CDs cannot - only those who downloaded
