I've been trying to download Security Center 9 for several days. McAfee Downloader opens and starts. I then start downloading "Compatibility Checker". This has run for as long as 8 hours with no result. no error messages, no nothing. Internet activity shows all kinds of activity at 31.2K. I'f tried shuting off Microsoft Firewall, clearing all "temp files". I'm at wits end!! Of all the things I've lost....I miss my mind the most!! :mad:
Oh yes....XP service pack 3, 8MB (old clone), It's a second machine on a three machine license.
8MB was wishful thinking on my part (RAM) actual is 384 at 800mhz. I had Norton inatalled at one time (though I removed it completely). I have "Adaware" anti-spyware installed. My "C" drive has 1.75GB of free space and I try to install any other software to my larger "F" drive. All Windows updates are up to date as of today (auto update on). XP is 32 bit with SP3, home version, 2002 version. Intel P3 processor. Internet is dial up here at work and it is very slow 31.2 kb. Thanks for the reply. Mike
Peter: I ran the Norton removal tool. Turned off AdAware. The Installation tool starts running the " compatability checker" then stops. the internet shows activity but nothing happens after the "indicator bar" moves about 3/4 of an inch. Hows that for technical jargon? Mike
