When I boot up I get a message saying I'm not fully protected, run security center. But when it opens the window is blank.
Virtual technician wont run and says "Installation ended prematurely because of an error."
Should I reinstall?
Running windows 7
AMD turion dual core 2.2 ghz
I would recommend you uninstall the software via Add/Remove programs and reboot. Go to useful links at the top of this page and run the MCPR removal tool to remove any traces of the software that Add/Remove fails to completly remove and reboot again. Then go toy your online McAfee account and download and install your software.
Let us know how this works for you.
This Stop error, which can be caused by either software or hardware, indicates that a kernel-mode process or driver attempted to access a memory location it did not have permission to access or a memory location that exists at a kernel interrupt request level (IRQL) that was too high. A kernel-mode process can only access other processes that have an IRQL that’s equal to or lower than its own.
This Stop message indicates that a kernel-mode process or driver attempted to access a memory address to which it did not have permission to access. The most common cause of this error is an incorrect or corrupted pointer that references an incorrect location in memory. A pointer is a variable used by a program to refer to a block of memory. If the variable has an incorrect value in it, the program tries to access memory that it should not. When this occurs in a user-mode application, it generates an access violation. When it occurs in kernel mode, it generates a STOP 0x0000000A message.
It would be great if you could provide us with some information on this error and about your machine.
In addition to this if it’s ok with you could you please perform some of the below indicated steps? This mustnarrow down the reason for this Crash .

Everything seemed fine until I downloaded security center and tried to run it. got the IRQC bit agin as it crashed.
Have a 30day trial version on computer and it seems to be working so how do I upgrade it to the purchased version that I paid for until February 2011?
After the system restore i downloaded security center but it crashed when i ran it.
when I restarted i noticed i had a trial version already installed (must be part of the software originally with the computer) and it works fine. But is only a 30-day trial even though I've paid for the full version.
