Hello, I just started using Windows Vista SP1 (which came with McAfee SecurityCenter 9) a couple days ago and I am still getting used to it. There are some files I attempted to download from the internet. There is no problem downloading any files, and they are saved and found where I want them. The problem is that as soon as I double-click on the installer an error message always occurs. There are different error messages for each different program but I'm guessing they all relate. Below are some messages I am getting:
"Error reading setup initialization file." "The file name, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect." "Your system is currently not allowing access to our servers. Check your firewall and/or security software settings and try again. Visit the help page or contant us at (email-here)for further assistance."
I spent some time researching what the problem may be and came to a conclusion the McAfee is not allowing me to install anything. I am new to McAfee and do not know how to work it very well, so is there some place such as a setup or settings that I can access and set it to allow me to install these? (I transfered all the installers to a different computer in my household and they all worked fine).
Hi, Please clarify, How old is the computer? What is the version of internet explorer (IE) you use? Did you made any recent changes to the computer? Steps: Perform the windows update including the patch and optional update Reset the McAfee firewall to default. (Click on internet and network –click on configure in the right had panel –click on advance button under the firewall protection is enabled –click on restore firewall)
I just got this computer a couple days ago, although the computer itself is from 2007 I believe. I use IE8 and I have not made any changes since I first got it. I have tried installing programs with and without the firewall on (mostly off). When I reset the firewall to default it made no difference to the problem.
