Re: Mcafee not downloading updates on a windows 7 machine

hello,

did you use also the MCPR tool after removing Mcafee from Windows7 before doing a new install ?

when Mcafee is removed from Windows7 and doing a reboot you can use the MCPR tool

the MCPR tool can be downloaded from here;

https://service.mcafee.com/webcenter/portal/cp/home/articleview;jsessionid=2lOfRCxjT57-9lzsaRnwOj3kc...

after using MCPR tool and a reboot, doing a fresh install of the Mcafee product should than work correctly.

hope this info will help to solve the problem.

I'd recommend opening a ticket with Support since you mention that a re-install was already done. https://service.mcafee.com
