Re: Cannot download

I tried to install the McAfee Total Protection software trial version on my computer.

I see it is working the SecurityCenter for more than 5 hours (!!!!) behind an empty screen, but it is not doing any further things.

For how many hours or days must I wait for the complete installation of this software?

Thank you for your answer!

Re: Cannot download


Can you provide the following information so that we could proceed accordingly,

What is the type of internet connection (dsl/wireless) ?

What is the version of internet explorer ? (To find out, click help - click about internet explorer)

Do you have any other security software installed in the computer ?
