My McAfee SecurityCenter won't automatically work. It also won't open even I click the program in start manu.

Jump to solution

Hi,

McAfee SecurityCenter won't automatically open on my toolbar after I turn on my laptop (Windows Vista with IE9).  I tried to click the short cut and the button on start manu.  But, none of them work.  I also removed and re-installed it.  Still doesn't work.  My case might be different from other people because I didn't see blank window.  Please help.  Thanks!

Get the above details from "About Internet Explorer" which you can find in IE settings...

Also let me know if there is any major change happened to your OS, before u start seeing the issue with McAfee

Hi Tony,

I tried two different way to remvoe McAfee from my laptop, one via control panel and another by MCPR.  Neither of them work.

Since I can't open McAfee on my Vista laptop, I don't know its version.  But, my other two laptop (XP and Windows7 with same McAfee) work well, I guess McAfee security center version should be the same, 11.0, Build 11.0.678. 

Thanks!

Hi Jai,

Sorry for my late response.  Actually, I replied McAfee's "Do not reply" email on 8/24.  Here is why I wrote in my email. 

The update took 2hrs and was still 0% last night.  So, I decided to reboot my laptop.  After reboot, it took about 3 mins for McAfee icon to show next on toolbar.  Then, I tried to update and full scan my pc.  Everything looks Ok now.  Thanks for you help!

Was the issue because of virus or program conflict?

Thanks!

Gary

There was a bad DAT out and that has now been fixed. What is your current DAT?

Good idea to run MVT as per

Hi Tony,

The situation in the link you attached seems to be different from what I had.  Before Jai fixed the issue, McAfee securitycenter software could be removed and re-installed smoothly.  The problem was that the software seemed "hibernate".  I didn't see any error message or white window like other people have.  I just could not "turn it on".

My laptop has the same issue again.  I am pretty sure I didn't install any new software.  Could you please help again?
