Hello @Bi 

We are sorry that the installation got failed. Please follow below instructions that will help you to sort out this issue,

  • Check if there any  pending Windows updates. Please update Windows and make sure there are no pending updates and try to install McAfee again
  • Check if there are any third party Anti Virus program traces and remove them since it will conflict with McAfee

The first step should mostly fix the issue and you should be able to install McAfee. 

Please let us know if you need any further help after exhausting all trouble shooting steps.
