I've got the same problem on a brand new McAfee backup installation.
There doesn't seem to be any way to stop/start this pgm as it requests.
Please try the following steps:
1. Go to C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\McAfee\MBK.
2. Delete the content of the folder.
3. Re-boot the system.
Let us know if this works…..
sorry, no luck - exactly the same symptoms as before.
not only did i delete the content of the above quoted directory, but other similar directories in the admin and other user folders.
Hi pac_ga - but did it work? You don't say.
I've passed this on to online support as well as in a different thread here and I have an open ticket on the problem but no news as yet. I'll report back when I have any new info.
I am having the exact same issues. Just installed McAfee on 5 computers. Don't really want to reinstall because this is the Network managing PC. I have tried clearing out the MBK folder and rebooting. All I really want to do is change the full backup time of day from the default 9 AM to something more practical like 2 AM. I tried the same change on the other 4 computers and got the same warning to restart the backup program. I even looked at all mbackup references in regedit but found nothing obviously related to 9 AM enough to risk messing with.
I see a 5 month gap in response to this question. Sorry but that is not encouraging.
As well as posting to this thread I have notified the online chat representative about this one although I have little or no confidence that he took it in. I started with another question and, although that eventually got an answer, I think this one may just have dropped into the nearest black hole.
Even though I'm not very happy about using it, I think you should also try online chat as the forum obviously does nothing for us. Who knows, if we bring it up often enough on chat it might get reported.
Are you using a Comcast version of McAfee?
