Has the McAfee website stopped working?

Jump to solution

Having suffered the effects of the recent software update bug I am now trying to clean up several PCs by uninstalling and reinstalling the McAfee security software.  However I cannot download MCPR from http://download.mcafee.com/products/licensed/cust_support_patches/MCPR.exe and even www.mcafee.com is unreachable.  It appears that there might be a major problem.  Are others having the same difficulties?

Thanks Peter and Hayton. Removed what you said. Also got rid of Avast (downloaded that yesterday with all the trouble, as had no protection).

Then installed it again, and so far so good. Its back to normal with 'your computer is secure - no action required' - Happy Days at last

Both are working fine for me.  Either it's a temporary web glitch or it could possibly be malware.

Run Stinger and Malwarebytes Free, both linked in the last link in my signature below.

Thanks Peter.

I have tried three different PC's and an iphone and all fail to connect the McAfee website which I think will rule out malware.  I am in the UK.  Perhaps it is a regional web problem.
