My Security Center says that my PC is not protected. When I press the Fix button, I get a box that says: "Fixing your protection ites. Please wait." left to right and, finally, a message that says: "One or more problems cannot be fixed because of an error."
Here my vital statistics:
Security Center version 9.0 Build: 9.0.295
VirusScan version: 13.0 Build: 13.0.218
Personal Firewall version: 10.0 Build: 10.0.209
I ran the McAfee Virtual Technicial to no avail. It detected some errors, but when I selected Autofix, it came back with a message that not everything could be fixed.
I'm having same exact issue. Have been on tech chat with Dell and McAfee. Have uninstalled and installed 3 times but still have same problem. Fix button only fixes 1 of the two problems. Message "signature detection files between 8 and 29 days old. Manual scan for updates does nothing. help!
I checked my software and found that is is NOT 9.0. I have Sec Center 8.1. Does your advice still apply? Computer is showing protected because I uninstalled and installed on 1/19/08 so will see what happens after 8 days. I also double checked system time and time zone and it is correct.
The error message in v9 when clicked on opens the security centre. When open it shows what is not enabled usually computer and files and email. Clicking fix fixes things and if you then click on the arrow next to these you see everything is back.
