I updated my total protection mcafee 2011 . intalled the new 2012 but I dont know why eveyday when i log in to my laptop it say I updated and i need to restart???
I'm not complaing about the update just confused on why im restarting everyday for last 2 weeks. little confused just wanted to make sure. i did change my setting on my update to
download updates but notify me before installing, but that doesnt happen. message the update say It already download and it need to restart my laptop??
little confused on what happen here. Never happen on my 2011 so does anyone know what going on...
It shouldn't ask for a restart every time like that. Maybe the upgrade from one to the next didn't go smoothly. Try running the Virtual Technician to see if it will autofix the problems.
If it doesn't help then you have 2 choices. The first one:
1. Uninstall everything via Control Panel > Programs > Uninstall a Program (Add or Remove Programs in XP)
2. Run the MCPR cleanup tool listed under Useful Links at the top of this page, reboot.
3. Download and install you new software from your online account.
Contact Technical Support, it's free by phone or online chat and also linked under Useful Links at the top of this page.
However the chances are that they will tell you to do my previous suggestion anyway, at least as the 1st possible solution.

Thank you for quick reply. i have already done that. uninstall then used the tool to full clean everything . then install it back. I got window 7 64x system . I will try the Virtual Technician see what happens
Good, if that doesn't help then try Technical Support as I mentioned.
It's quite normal for daily updates to occur but the vast majority of them are silent. Only when something major changes does it ask for a reboot.
