when you see the yellow circle what information does mcafee show? is it signature files being out of date? or some components being disabled?
if you encounter the same yellow exclamation point try to check what components of your security center are affected and the information provided as it will greatly help a lot in trying to troubleshoot the issue...
better yet run the mcafee virtual technician in my signature and post the session ID here.
Any advice on how to remove the free trial version of McAfee that was installed on my
laptop.I have tried numerous times now to remove everything that relates to McAfee,also
was in contact with customer support and they gave me a removal tool.
When i reinstall by downloading a version of McAfee Internet security 2009 which i have
a subscription for and check my account the free trial is also still there.I tried running the virtual techniction which says eveything is ok.
for home products the removal tool of mcafee should be enough. the process would be:
1. run the removal tool (linked in my signature)
2. download and install the mcafee internet security you purcahsed from us.mcafee.com
3. use the email address you registered with the product in loggin in
4. look for the product you have purchased and click on the blue download button for mcafee internet security
5. go through the download process as usual
let us know what happens...
i did as you instucted bua_ako and still have the same problem.When i check my account
page i have two versions of protection.One is Internet Security which i assume is the free
trial version and continues to runs out of date the other the 3 user version which i bought.
I have run virtual technician which tells me the problem is fixed but when it tries to update i recieve i message asking me to uninstall then reinstall which i have done countless times.
3. get the IP address from the replies and the number of packets lost and post it here.
also if you run MVT please post the session ID of the MVT here.
Then arises a problem.. there is a chance of server misereading the subscription when you install it from Disc... let me know whether you regitered the product after installing from the Disc... if you have was it using sam,e e-mail address that had the trial version of internet security suite.. if so uninstall the product.. register the product using a different e-mail address...
IF you have successfully registered it, and can see the product under your account. Uninstall the product and install it frmo your online account not the CD...
IP = 184.108.40.206
packets lost = 0
session id = 17325194
mvt = 4.3.30
Hope i did this correct
thanks for the post...
