did you previously use norton on this PC? aside from avast are there other security softwares?
are you by any chance using a wireless router?
steps that you may try:
1. delete cookies and temporary internet files including offline content
2. save dmsetup on your desktop and run it as administrator
3. install mcafee in safemode with networking (if you're using hard wired connection)
4. try running this
Thank you for your help. I did have Norton on at one time, but I ran the removal tool before I installed Avast. I ran it again, just in case. After it ran and I rebooted, I found that I had not uninstalled Comodo Firewall. This is something that I had uninstalled on the other 2 machines before I started the McAfee install. But apparently on mine, I had just exited, I hadn't uninstalled it. Dummy me. :rolleyes: After I uninstalled Comodo, it worked like a charm. Thanks again. grin
glad to hear that you're ok now...
usually third party firewalls will create problems when installing mcafee... anyway the mcafee software that you are installing has it's own firewall so i guess that should be ample... however, you can always choose between the mcafee firewall and the comodo firewall... depends on your preference... anyway both firewall programs i guess are satisfactory in terms of functionality...
