I get a pop up that tells me that I am not protected. Errors it is suppose to fix: Detection signature is more than 30 days old. Some components are missing please reinstall McAfee virus scan (I did this yesterday). When I click the "fix" button I get an error message that states that one or more prblems can not be fixed due to an error.
I am at my wits end because nothin I do seems to work...
Operating System on you computer:- Windows Vista/Windows XP Internet Connection you use:- Cabel/wireless/dial-up/dsl Internet Explorer Version:- 7/8/beta (you can check the version on Internet Explorer Window,Help-->About Internet Explorer)
McAfee was not able to communicate with the server and it was not able to get its periodical updates, that triggered McAfee Unprotected.
3. Launch Windows Explorer and delete all McAfee files in "Program Files" but especially in "C:\Document and Settings\<user>\Application Data" and "C:\Document and Settings\All Users\Application Data". You have to set Windows Explorer to show all hidden files and folders (Tools > Folder Options > View tab). Just delete the McAfee folders even if they are empty in all the "Application Data" folders. Can be more than one! In Vista: C:\Program Files, C:\ProgramData and C:\Users\yourname\AppData\Roaming If you can't find these files don't worry. It just means that MCPR has done its job.
4. Reboot and redownload/reinstall your McAfee products directly from your account at the McAfee web site.
Already used the two spyware tools. they DID clean up a lot...
Upgraded to IE 8
Clock is fine.
I did the McAfee uninstall and reinstalled from their website previously - but I'll try it again and report. I did not go in and manually remove the items that you listed above - but I'll do that and report the findings as well.
