Computer is not protected - Security Center screen is blank
McAfee tells me that my computer is not protected. When I open the seucrity center I get a blank screen. When I check my subscription it is ok. When I check for new updates, I get a blank security center, when I want to download and install again from the Internet, the process does hang.
When I boot the computer, the McAfee icon is ok for soem time and only then it will show the exclamation mark. I guess there is somewhere a conflict rather than a virus.
Replacing IE 8 Beta by IE 7 helped to display the security center and it also started to display a worm and a trojan. However it still tells me that I'm not fully protected. Opening the Security center asks me to click fix to update the virus definition file. And then.... nothing happens. Reinstalling from the webpage doesn;t work. After clicking download, I should get a box where I click run. But I get to a page error....
McAfee does not test or support third-party beta software used in conjunction with McAfee products. By definition, beta software is still in a limited-release or testing phase and often has limited or no support even from the manufacturer. Most manufacturers state that beta software is used at your own risk.
McAfee can only offer support regarding the proper functioning of our products. McAfee cannot guarantee that issues related to how third-party beta software interacts with McAfee products can be resolved. In these circumstances, the beta software may need to be uninstalled.
RE: Computer is not protected - Security Center screen is blank
I did go back to IE 7 and I can now open Mcafee security center but on the tray icon it still says 'you are not protected'. Scan is still working and updater is also working. Only once the update shoul be installed there is an error message. I probably should de-install Mcafee but since I always get an error message when I try to download Mcafee again, I'm not too keen to do so.... Is there something in the registry left behind from IE 8 beta?
