Mcafee installs faulty

My subscription was about to expire.

I bought a new subscription.

I downloaded and installed the newest download of Mcaffee.

Now everything went wrong. It crashes if I try to update. It scans my computer and tells me nothing is wrong. This has been uninstalled completely and downloaded fresh from the website a number of times.

McAfee Virtual Technician informs me:

Re: Mcafee installs faulty

Hi,

Could you please let me know what is the message displayed in your security center  :

“Am I protected YES” or “Your Computeris secure” either one of these to find out the version installed.

Also let me know the operating system of the computer
How is the computer connected to internet   ?  (dsl/cable/wireless)
Did we have any other security software in the computer previously ?

Re: Mcafee installs faulty

"Your Computer is secure (No Action Required)"

Internet: High Speed Modem (AT&T)

Did we have any other security software in the computer previously: As far as I can remember, no. Certainly not within a few years before the current download. This dinosaur is pushing upwards of 6 years and to the best of my knowlege, McAfee has been the only antivirus we've ever used.

Re: Mcafee installs faulty

Hi Alkuna,
May I know whether we receive any error while security center updates ?
Did we perform a system restore after having Mcafee installed in the machine ?

Re: Mcafee installs faulty

May I know whether we receive any error while security  center updates ?

It would give me the error message "McAfee has experienced an internal error and needs to close, if you have not saved recently you may lose your progress"

Did we perform a system restore after having Mcafee  installed in the machine ?

Hmm no I didn't.

Oh great. I checked on the program and found that it had completely uninstalled itself from my computer. I just went and re-downloaded it, re-installed it, and rebooted (for the millionth time). The program is now working perfectly and virtual technician finds nothing wrong. I just checked on updating it, and now it's updating perfectly. All errors have vanished without a trace.

*sigh*

Now that someone professional is looking into the problem the problem vanishes. I guess that means the problem is resolved, even though we have no idea why it was acting up in the first place.

Well thank you Dinesh for trying to help me.

Re: Mcafee installs faulty

Thank You for taking the time to document your issue.

I just went through the same process which required reinstallation of the McAfee Internet Security Suite.

I have 260+ days left in my subscription.

When I click on "Verify Subscription" it is successfully verified.

However, the realtime scanner would not stay turned ON.

If a person was not paying close attention, they might easily find their computer not protected.

I sell and perform PC cleanup services and have seen 4 Machines in the last 2 weeks with very similar symptoms.

The 4 machines exhibited varying degrees of neglect being home user based (from non-managed environments).

However, I use several other tools to provide a better PROTECTED platform (some on a regular basis, others once in a while) which include:

Secunia PSI - Vulnerability Scanner for software other than Microsofts O/S and AntiVirus Products.

WinPatrol - Useful Control Panel for those who know how to use it properly

MalwareBytes - A good backup, since no antivirus provides 100% protection, and seems to work well with McAfee

ShieldsUp - Internet Vulnerability Scanner to test access to Service Ports

McAfee Default Settings can be improved...

Anyways, the McAfee install seems to have finally settled down, got its updates and has stayed ON for the past hour now.

Maybe I'm good to go...

Until Next Time!
