I'm getting a warning saying "your computer is not protected". My security centre is telling me that my "computer & files" and my " E-mail & IM " need attention. I've clicked "fix" only to be told that " the detection signature files are between 8 and 29 days old". I've clicked update and still nothing changes...any ideas?
>> check time and date >> if not accurate: ADJUST it!
>> check for any previous configuration : *** this issue is normally caused by a SYSTEM RESTORE
>> check for possible infection: >> are you getting pop ups? >> on IE, are you being redirected to other sites? >> are you able to access mcafee.com?
>> check internet connectivity: >> start >> cmd/start search >> cmd >> type in: "ping download.mcafee.com" - hit ENTER >> check the number after REPLY FROM – you should get 4 times
>> try updating MFE? >> able to update? or got a n update error?
>> check your updates / drivers / and for any 3rd party app (i.e. Norton etc.) >> remove any other anti-virus app >> start >> ctrl panel >> uninstall a program >> java updates >> FOUND? >> Microsoft .NET framework 1.1 or higher >> FOUND? >> msxml 4.0 or 6.0 >> FOUND?
