My McAfee subscription expired several months ago, and I bought a new disc at a local store. After installing it it now won't open. When I double-click (or right-click and open) from the desktop icon nothing happens. No error messages, nothing at all. I've tried reinstalling (both from the disc and from the McAfee site) several times and get teh same results. I attempted uninstalling McAfee to reinstall it, but when I do so from the 'add/remove programs' utility I get an error message saying 'Navigation to webpage was cancelled. What you can try: Refresh the page.' (Right-clicking on this window yields no menu, so there's really no way to refresh it.) I tried running the MCPR tool listed in the support section of the McAfee site, but when I try to run it a get an error message saying the program is not a valid Win32 application. Does anyone have solutions, ideas, or input on how to either make McAfee work or uninstall it? Thanks so mcuh for any assistance anyone can provide!
Thanks for the advise, but it doesn't seem to work. There's no 'run as administrator' option when I right-click anywhere in msconfig, and there's no 'Disable UAC' option under the tools tab. Thanks again though!
Try running MCPR in safe mode ie tap F8 during boot.
I hear there is a virus that will give that error maybe try Mcafee online scanner and if no chop talk to their chat techs here http://service.mcafee.com/TechSupportHome.aspx?lc=1033&sg=TS
If they no good ask to escalate it. That message is usually a UAC issue though I saw a post saying a certain virus can cause that as well
