RE: Help with fix directions

We aren't psychic and have no connection here to Tech Support Chat so maybe if you clarify what it is you saved to your desktop, and what operating system and service pack you are using?

After you have saved it did you right-click, go to Properties and click "Unblock"? That is a Windows standard procedure since XP SP2 and upwards.

What are the properties of that shortcut, where does it lead, what address?

RE: Mcafee worthless

Can you email me the email that chat sent you please I would like to review what they are telling users. Include attachments,

Emails only from your email you registered with will get past my spam filter.

What version have you security centre 8 or 9? 9 is stable, yes it has the not protected issue but fix works so I am wondering if you have 8.1. did you buy it or get it from say AT@T or Comcast?

to find out open security centre (click on red M). Click on details or about tab bottom right corner. What version is security centre?

Add these answers to the email please This thread has to remain closed.

My email now removed

Of course subsitute @ for (at)

Alternatively email me your chat id number for your talk and i will reference that to get the email
