Did McAfee Security Center Change its Look?

Jump to solution

(I'm not computer kind of person, so please be kind!)

Last night, I had problems with my entire system hanging.  I ran the Hard Disk error-checking tool.  It took hours so I went to bed.

This morning, my system was restarted so I logged on and there were no more problems with hanging.  However, the icon for McAfee Security Center in the taskbar looked different.  I clicked on it and the screen that popped up didn't look the same as I remembered it.

I checked my McAfee account, etc. - the only different is that it shows my expiration date Oct 2011 instead of Oct 2010.

I even installed the McAfee Advisor and ran it - no problems.

I have Vista with SP1.  I mostly use Firefox (if that matters).

Did McAfee change its look or am I just imagining it?  (I swear, I wasn't drinking and I don't think I'm developing Alzheimers... although I guess if I am, I wouldn't know it...)

Thank you.

You should be using Vista SP2 to be current.

Perhaps you were finally upgraded to the new version. If you purchased your software from Dell or Comcast just to mention a few of the partners they often take longer than purchasing direct from McAfee.

Thanks for your reply.  I did buy my computer from Dell with McAfee included... but I bought my computer at the end of September 2008.

So... your McAfee Security Center hasn't changed its look?

YES - that's it!  Until this morning, I had the "old" version.

Thank you very much!
