False error "we havent connected with your device in more than a week"

Jump to solution

When I open Livesafe, in the listed devices on the left, there's an error (red exclamation) for the computer listed that I'm actually using. I click on that device and it says "we haven't connected with your device in more than a week" which is incorrect. Everything is up to date. Even did a manual 'check for updates' ... :Nothing new - everything is up to date" I would think if i click check for updates, that Livesafe would have to 'connect with my device' at that moment. Anyways I've seen this error for around 3 months. Even tried removing and reinstalling ... same thing. There is another thread about this however the person describes having the same issue i am, the 'resolution showing' (which explains what happens when you want to remove Livesafe completely) has an explanation that has nothing to do with the issue the person is describing. I don't want to remove Livesafe, I just want the error 'displayed' issue to resolve since it is false. Why would your software show i have a connection error when its obviously connecting because everything is up to date.

I contacted chat support and they did a screen-share and fixed the issue with their McAfee 'repair tool' download I believe (took about an hour). On other devices, yes, that one computer also showed the red error ... We did do a windows update also as well as removed McAfee and removed reinstalled ... etc. and something with the repair tool and all good now. Support was great. Thanks

Hello,

Sorry for the inconvenience caused.

Please let us know the following information.

1. Have you tried to check for windows update and then re-install McAfee

2. Is there another instance of the same computer listed with a Green check on any other computer or device.
