For the past few weeks my virus definitions would not install, so I decided today to uninstall and reinstall. Unfortunately when I go to redownload from my account I get to the point where I'm ready to download and then get this error:
DMSetup.exe was not found on this server
So I tried to run the assistance tool from support and that file was also not found on the server. So I'm unable to download anything at this point.
It could be that the servers are down temporarily. When you uninstalled did you run the MCPR cleanup tool (linked in my signature) ? If not do so now but I would advise enabling Windows Firewall until this is sorted out.
If it is server issues then it should start working again soon, or you can try another country server, if you don't mind another language on the interface.
A tip is to "Save" the DMSETUP to your desktop first, then
Obviously the REMOVEDFROMPOST part of course was my key, not sure if supposed to post that here or not.
I've tried it from the UK, Singapore and Canadian download sites also (originally US) and I get the exact same thing. It just changes the message by the local download site to read something like:
The requested URL /molbin/iss-loc/mdm/en-au/3.0.161/2/DMSetup.exe was not found on this server.
So basically I'm protection proof at this point, I downloaded AntiVir Personal for now, until I get McAfee back online. But obviously this is a product I own and paid for so I'd like to get it back up ASAP.
Oh one additional note, I've tried this with both IE and Firefox, same problem.
Are you simply signing in using your registered email address and password?
Maybe your cookies are corrupted. Have you tried clearing them?
Make sure that your browser is set to default.
If you are running Internet Explorer 7 go to Tools/Internet Options/Advanced and click the Reset button. OK and exit, close and reopen IE7. You will have to-enable all the browser add-ons.
If Internet Explorer 6 - go to Tools/Internet Options.. General tab: clear cookies, history and temporary files Security tab: set all zones to default Content tab: disable Content Advisor Advanced tab: set to default. OK and exit.
