McAfee LiveSafe not opening

I just have bought a new laptop. It's a Lenovo one, with pre-installed McAfee LiveSafe. When I try to double-click open the icon on the taskbar, it shows "We're getting your app up and running". It's happening for a week. What can I do to open up the software for my first time on itMcAfee query.PNG

Hi @duckduckjumjum 

Ensure all the mcAfee services in running in services.msc,  if not restart all the McAfee services, restart the PC  and check the status.

Hi @duckduckjumjum 

you can press the windows key and the letter R Key together on the desktop, the run windows will open. From the Run window you can type services.msc and you will be able to see all the programs running on the OS. 

From there you can select all McAfee process and check whether all process are running. 

Please let us know if need any clarifications.

Re: McAfee LiveSafe not opening :

hello,

on the taskbar there is this ^ icon next to the onedrive icon.

when clicking on this ^ icon there are several icons like windows security icon but there should also be a mcafee icon.

have you checked this already also perhaps ?
