Hi there, I've been having problems reinstalling my McAfee security center. I'm running the 'DMSetup.exe' but it crashes and gives me the download error:12029 message. Just to let you know that there's no other anti-virus software on my machine etc. and the windows firewall is disabled during reinstallation. I've also been through various forums and have removed all temp & McAfee files. Nothing works. This is really starting to get to me:mad:. This all used to work perfectly until I had to reinstall my operating system. Any help would be much appreciated, this is very frustrating. Thanks
Hi thanks for the response, my connection is quite often crappy. I used to play a bit online and I've seen it be very slow, also with my xbox 360. I'm with aol. No I don't use a proxy connection, I just connect normally through my router. I did manage to get it to work before after I reinstalled my 'os' but it was having trouble updating and said to reinstall the security center, now I can't get it back. I'm assuming no you've said it a connection thing that I'll have to keep trying and wait till internet traffic quietens down a bit. If there are any suggestions that you could make I would be most grateful.
I could not get McAfee to install due to a 12029 error. I had recently gotten the tinyproxy.exe virus and taken care of it, but the virus had changed my settings to "proxy."
Under my browser tools/options/advanced/settings I reset it to "no proxy" right away as a part of the clean up but I missed the one under the control panel. I fought off and on for weeks until this morning I was digging around and found the other place I needed to correct:
Under control panel/internet options/connections/lan settings I unchecked proxy server.
And McAfee loaded up fine. Whew. I hope this helps someone out there!
Hi alanclother, thanks for the reply. I did have a look at what you suggested but my settings were already correct. I did manage to get security center installed but it won't update. Total nightmare. Thanks again, midge
