I have a Dell laptop (approx. 5 yrs. old) and my McAfee freqenty stopped working.  I got a message saying, "McAfee VirusScan has stopped working properly. McAfee, Inc. recommends that you go online to their website to check for the latest support information and product updates.  What should I do?  BTW I have Vista Home operating system.

Thanks for any help you can give me.

The first thing I would suggest you do is to run the McAfee Virtual Technician found at the top of this page under Useful Links. It will scan for problems and attempt to fix them. When MVT is finished it will generate a report number which you should post here on the forum so we have a reference to it available. Next step would be to contact Technical Support Chat also found under Useful Links if MVT could not repair everything it found. They have some other tools to use to fix problems. Chat is available 24 hours and there is no charge where as if you wanted to use telephone support then you would have to pay a fee.

Good Luck
