Re: issue with mcafee instalation

Hi gnr1254,

Lets try this again Go to Add/remove programs and uninstall and reboot the computer. Go to Useful Links at the tiop of this page and run the MCPR rremoval tool to clean out any remaining traces of McAfee that might still remain and reboot again. Run the preinstall tool found in the link.

Reboot again and then download and install your software

Let us know how this works for you and good luck

Re: issue with mcafee instalation

In addition to the above, you shall also try the following:

1. Make sure there are no other security programs installed in your computer - If yes, uninstall it

2. Check for Windows Update and install all the important updates

Reboot the computer and re-try the installation....

Re: issue with mcafee instalation

The issue is with the temporary Internet files, Open Internet properties window and select Delete button, make sure that you uncheck the option "Preserve Favorites website date" and then select Delete button. Once the files are removed select Ok and close the Internet Properties window. Then try to install McAfee from website account.
