Hi Try to un-install and  re-install the McAfee product.

  1. Download the removal tool from:
    http://download.mcafee.com/products/licensed/cust_support_patches/MCPR.exe 
  2. Click Save and save the file to a folder on your computer.
  3. Navigate to the folder where the file was saved.
  4. Make sure all McAfee windows are closed.
  5. Double-click MCPR.exe to run the removal tool.
    Note: Windows Vista users must right-click MCPR.exe and select Run as Administrator.  
  6. Restart your computer after receiving the message Clean Up Successful.

Try to re-install the McAfee product, let me know the status.

Hi,

To be more precise on this , can you provide me with the following information :

What is the operating system we use ?
Do we have any other security software in the computer ? (Also check in C:/progam files & common files)
Do you receive any anonymous pop ups in the computer ?

Regards,
Dinesh K

Hello.  I use Windows Vista.  No other security software because when I installed Mcafee the first time, it told me to close/uninstall other security software so Mcafee can run correctly.  No anonymous popups occured.  Thanks

Hi,

Please follow the below steps:

1.Check and delete if you find any other security software (remnant) in C:/program files & common files.

2. Restart the computer and start tapping F8 key, from the advanced boot options menu select safe mode with networking and press enter . (Ignore this step if you are using a wireless connection)

3. Run the Mcpreinstall tool from here and start installing again .

Do report back if you have any issues along with the exact error message you receive and a screen shot of the error.

Thanks,

Dinesh K

From the screenshot I can see that a McAfee update is happening on your PC. update.jpg


Please let me know whether the icon is there or not. If not please hit the update icon on SecurityCenter and wait for the updates to finish.
Once it is completed, please reboot your PC and check the status of SecurityCenter.


Also, how much is your system RAM?


Please reply back with the staus...


Thanks in advance...

Do you have any other Security Software installed on your computer? If so please uninstall it.


Try update once again and place mouse over the animated icon and let me know the status ( it will show as "downloading" or "installing").

Also check whether you are getting a confirmation message once the updates are installed.


Thanks in advance
