The little blue dot has been sitting on the McAfee icon for a day. I can't open the software. When I hover over the McAfee icon/blue dot, it says "Downloading updates 0%." I right clicked and "canceled" the update and a second later I got the window asking me if I wanted to get the updates. Great. So I clicked yes, but the blue dot is still there, still stuck. I right clicked again but I get a blank window (but there are two arrows on the far right of the window).
FWIW I did shift my default browser from IE to Firefox. Day before yesterday.
I have Internet Security, 2016
Thanks for any help.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I had rebooted, didn't work.
Ran the VT, said it fixed something but the dot was still there. Ran it again, same thing, so I rebooted. Dot was gone so I opened the software, checked for updates and it did download and install them. So I guess the VT worked. Thanks a lot!
