SecurityCenter Downloading in Spanish

Several weeks ago I downloaded McAfee SecurityCenter through my Qwest/MSN Member Center account onto one PC. It downloaded and is running fine in English. Today I went to download on a second PC. It started coming down in Spanish, so I quit and tried again. Spanish again. I found no options for selecting language.

I went back to the first PC and started a download there again, and lo and behold, it too was in Spanish. I checked my Language/Region settings, and everything is English. Any thoughts?

RE: SecurityCenter Downloading in Spanish

Moved to your own thread as the other one was rather old and was about SiteAdvisor only.

You must have somehow switched servers to a Spanish location (such as Mexico for instance).

It is possible to download McAfee in any language you like that way.

I suggest you do the following. after double-checking your Region and Language settings in the Control Panel.

1. Uninstall all McAfee programs through "Add or Remove Programs" in Windows "Control Panel".

2. Use the MCPR tool, see this article: How to remove supported McAfee consumer products using the McAfee Consumer Products Removal tool (MC... This will remove all McAfee remnants from your computer. (you must have Windows Vista, XP or 2000 SP4 to use this tool)

3. Launch Windows Explorer and delete all McAfee files in "Program Files" but especially in "C:\Document and Settings\<user>\Application Data" and "C:\Document and Settings\All Users\Application Data". You have to set Windows Explorer to show all hidden files and folders (Tools > Folder Options > View tab). Just delete the McAfee folders even if they are empty in all the "Application Data" folders. Can be more than one!
In Vista: C:\Program Files, C:\ProgramData and C:\Users\yourname\AppData\Roaming

4. Reboot and redownload/reinstall your McAfee products directly from your account at the McAfee web site.

If you are McAfee direct customer, go to https://home.mcafee.com/Secure/Protected/Login.aspx and log in to download your McAfee products.

If you received your McAfee products from your service provider, please use the list below to download your software.

Comcast users should go to http://security.comcast.net/ and log in to download your software.

DELL users should go to https://us.mcafee.com/root/login.asp?affid=105 and log in to download your software.

Gateway users should go to https://us.mcafee.com/root/login.asp?affid=370 and log in to download your software.

eMachines users should go to https://us.mcafee.com/root/login.asp?affid=365 and log in to download your software.

MSN users should go to http://membercenter.msn.com/ and log in to download your software.

To start a new thread one would look for that particular button when looking at the main forum, whether it be Security Center 9 or Siteadvisor...or whatever.
