Hi and thank you for your help.
PRINCIPLE PROBLEM: Automatic updates are not loading properly. Computer at risk!
The automatic updates is not working properly and the "notice" reads something to the effect of "Computer at risk". I've been through the support center and chat center but have been unable to resolve the problem. Attempts to create a chat session continue to abort and the "stock photo" of an apparant call center helper on the se
The McAfee Virtual Technician does not seem to operate.
I've completed registration fields and collected over 8 chat confirmation numbers in 10 days but have been unable to establish a chat session to assist. (Pop ups are set to allowed.)
Sorry for the inconvenience caused, please clarify the following:

3. What type of internet connection are you using? (cable, dsl….)
4. What type of web browser are you using? (firefox, internet explorer…) if it’s internet explorer then what’s the version?
Many thanks for offering to help out.
1. Windows XP Home 5.1 build 2600.xpsp_sp3_gdr.100427-1636 Service Pack 3.

Many thanks for your suggestions.
I reset Explorer and deleted over 5,000 temporary files as suggested.
I then attempted to apply the patch but the standard Explorer "Internet Explorer cannot disply the webpage" message come up. I have recently installed Firefox and I pasted the link on the URL field. The similar message came up.
Thanks again. Any further suggestions are welcome.

I've been to this site on several occasions and the chat session does not properly load. I get the standard, "Explorer cannot load this page" message. In addition, the virtual technician feature does not appear to load properly.
Please direct me to the appropriate McAfee access means so that I can receive free technical support.
My subsciption has considerable time remaining on the contract. Thank you for your help as I attempt to continue benefitting from the McAfee service.
Alright, so we weren't able to connect with chat, run MVT or get updates for the McAfee programs !!! So now I guess there might be something seriously wrong with your internet connection.
Click on Start> Click Run> Type Drivers> Open etc folder> Open hosts file by using notepad, make sure the hosts file doesnt' not have any additional information added below 127.0.0.1 Local host (I have enclosed a screenshot of sample hosts file herewith)
Click on Start> Click Run> Type cmd> Type IPConfig /flushdns> Hit Enter. Open Internet Explorer> Tools> Internet Options> Connections> LAN Settings> if you find anything selected, uncheck them> Click ok to close it.
Reboot the computer and check the status, also if you are using a Wireless connection then try to connect the cable as hard wired and then check for updates
