McAfee Total Protection refusing to update

Jump to solution

I've had an issue lately with Total Protection not updating. A few days ago, when I went to update (I have automatic updates turned off), the "Checking for updates" progress bar is stuck at 25%.

Not even rebooting my computer fixed the issue. Both McAfee and Windows keep bugging me to update Total Protection when I literally can't.

Is there anything I can do to fix this? Note I am on Win10.

Seen this before in the forum posts. A uninstall and reboot followed by a reinstall fixed it.

I tried looking around, but I failed to find such. Then again I'm not very good at finding things like that.

In any case, I will be doing that later. Thank you for the advice, I'll update this post when I get around to doing so.

At the top of this page type update stuck and enter. The post us first it finds in my search.

Update: so my procrastination on reinstalling actually paid off. The issue just somehow fixed itself. I certainly can't complain, as I was not looking forward to the process of the uninstall and reinstall.

Regardless, I still want to thank you for the very quick reply and answer, as I'm certain your answer would have worked.
