I've been working on fixing the mess the data update has done to an xp pro computer for days!!!. None of the fixes worked and I have discovered that it removed 16 of the OS services including "network connections" and related services as well as "system restore services" from the services. Not just disabled them but REMOVED them. I can not access restore or the backup on the computer or the backup on the network for this computer. I'm surprised the computer even works but it does. There is current data on this computer not on the network backup so I would rather not wipe the hard drive an reload it. I tried creating a new back up to another hard drive but that service was gone also. Am I mad at McAfee You bet!!! Got any suggestions?
I am pretty darn mad too. I had to uninstall/reinstall McAfee twice. And now, for some reason, both my routers (an Netgear and a Belkin) DO NOT WORK. Why is this? It has to have something to do with the recent internet access issues.
I will not use McAfee products again.
I did get my router and switches to work but "IT" had reset their IP's and configurations. All the computers except the one running McAfee are back on line. The McAfee computer is at the shop to see what they can do with it won't know til Mon.
