I have recently tried to configure my firewall but when i tried it wouldn't let me and keeps insisting i upgrade from 7.1 to 10.3 and that i should click fix to fix the problem. However i am unable to do this. Whenever i tell it to fix it always says the problem needs my response. Does anyone know how to fix it?
What is your operating system, service pack and are you up to date with Microsoft update?
What McAfee products do you have? If your taskbar icon is like this: - right-click it and go to each application "About" and post the details. If it is like this: - double-click to open SecurityCenter and then click "View Details" or "About" at the lower right of the new window. Post the details from each module.
PFP 7 is no longer supported so you may have to use a removal tool but I need to know the above information first.
i have recently upgraded my mcafee but now it says that my firewall service isn't working. I have upgraded it to 10.3 and whenever i go to configure it, it just says that it isn't running. can any one help me
3. Launch Windows Explorer and delete all McAfee files in "Program Files" but especially in "C:\Document and Settings\<user>\Application Data" and "C:\Document and Settings\All Users\Application Data". You have to set Windows Explorer to show all hidden files and folders (Tools > Folder Options > View tab). Just delete the McAfee folders even if they are empty in all the "Application Data" folders. Can be more than one! In Vista: C:\Program Files, C:\ProgramData and C:\Users\yourname\AppData\Roaming
4. Reboot and redownload/reinstall your McAfee products directly from your account at the McAfee web site. (NOT from any CD that you may have).
For future reference, never upgrade such an old application, especially one that jumps several versions - this applies to anything basically. Better to uninstall the old first and then install the new.
