A few days back I started getting a subscription verification required pop-up in the icon tray but could not get it verify my subscription.
I went through this forum and followed the uninstall procedure. When I tried to re-install it downloads the software but then says the installation failed. Only the security center is installed. I call my internet provider through which I have a free subscription and they connected me to Mcafee support. They told me to unistall again and try re-installing and everything should be okay. But it failed again.
This is very frustrating. My PC has been running McAfee for almost 6 years without any problems untill now. I even tried a different account since I have one installation for every email registered through my provider. My laptop is running fine with macfee.
I have tried the removal tool and also the pre-install.exe but still cannot intall Mcafee. Since I am getting it free from my subscriber and McAfee support was not too much of a help, I might as well go with anyother free virus protection.
I noticed while going through other threads that someone can help with a MVT session ID. Here is my session ID after another failed installation. ID:20312977. I also have saved the problem and diagnostic logs.
McAfee relies heavily on a working and up to date Internet Explorer. Go to IE Tools/Internet Options/Advanced and click "Reset", OK any prompts and click Apply and OK. Close and reopen IE, go to Tools/Manage Add-ons and re-enable all the add-ons. (This is assuming IE7 or 8 which you should have). Whether or not you use IE this still applies.
