    McAfee Security Center will not open

    ced2

      Periodically McAfee Security Center will not open via a
      right click.  A double left-click on the
      security center symbol in the system tray produces a balloon which says updates
      are being installed, and when this balloon is present, scheduled scans will not run.

       

      When the balloon is present, there
      is no update or install activity occurring.
      It takes three restarts to get the McAfee symbol to react and get the
      security center to open and then the scheduled scan will finally run.  

       

      I am running Windows 7 on an HP4540s laptop and McAfee
      Security Center.  I have McAfee updates set to “notify when updates
      are available”, so that I am aware when updates are downloaded and
      installing.  I also have a scan scheduled every Monday morning.  

       

      This is a continuing problem that occurs at least once a week and has been this way for
      several months.
