I am having the same problem. I surfaced after I renewed my subsripion. I have used "3 User McAfee Total Protection for years and have never had this problem before. I've spent two full days working thru the support site without success of ant kind. The McAfee Virtual technition sys everything os fine. Does anyone have an answer?
I probably shouldn't say this in a McAfee forum but if you use McAfee's password vault you are tied to McAfee for life -- something not lost on them you can be sure. If you choose to use another AV program you lose the passwords. There are shareware and freeware programs (google Keepass) that work fine and are secure and you can take the 'vault' (i.e. the database where they are stored) to other machines easily after installing the program on them. I have my 'vault' on 4 machines. Keepass also starts quicker than McAfee on any machine I run (my main one is a dual core 2.4 ghz, XP pro,
4gb 800 mhz DDR2 ram).
