I have the same problem. the MacAfee support team deleted and reinstalled the software a few weeks ago. That solved the problem for a while. now I have the same error. Do I really have to deinstall and reinstall every few weeks?

Sorry for the inconvenience. Now we got a new version released 4.1.3. Please try update McAfee twice to get the issue fixed and update the status.

How do I get the new version? When I download the product from McAfee, I get an older 3.9 version.

Karthikk3,

Is it still the case we need to reinstall your BT Virus Protect software to get it to the latest version?
