Security suit had -died- and taken others with it...
Hello, hopefully you all can help us with a -VERY- frustrating problem. But first the backstory. 5 or 6 days ago, for no apparant reason, McAfee Security Suit _DIED_. I mean that, everything went out and the "Fix Problems" thing was worse than useless. Well, I did the sensible thing when confronted with an intractable problem, I used the ever helpful System Restore. It worked, McAfee Security Suit all came back. That is until last night... arg... and McAfee Suit _DIED_ again, this is also the recent auto-resubscribe new product offered by McAfee. Now I could complain for days how much the program -when it worked- slowed down this computer, but I won't.
Well, since last night this seemed to be a endemic problem, I decided it was prudent to unistall McAfee and reinstall. Seems harmless, yes? I was wrong. Deleting was no problem, I then go to the online reloader McAfee offers, and tried to reinstall. First time the computer seized up, completely and totally only half way through. I left it thinking it might self correct, for 40 minutes, no such luck. Second time McAfee did in fact install... everything -EXCEPT- VirusScan. Then I tried to get it to install Virus scan, to no satisfaction. So I removed that instance of McAfee S-Suit. Third time, then charm eh?... Not so much. This time the program just made no progress at all to install, over an hour and a half the program wouldn't load.
Well, at that point last evening, over 4 hours were wasted with no progress, so I stopped for the night.
I may not be much of a tech guy but I know that's not right...
Okay now I'm worried, because it seems as though McAfee has caused a systemic flaw in this computer. So I even went the extra mile and reloaded all Java software, all brandnew right from SUN, and I -STILL- receive the aforementioned message.
I do apologize for sounding... abrasive, in this post, but this is, as I'm sure you all understand, very frustrating for me.
So, does anyone have any fix solutions? Thanks in advance.
