McAfee SecurityCenter and the McAfee Installer rely on Internet Explorer.
Make sure you are not using any beta version of IE8, if so uninstall it immediately and download the final version from Microsoft.
Also make sure, as you are using a 64-bit system, that Internet Explorer 32-bit is the default IE (you'll see two listed in Start/All Programs). For the purpose of this exercise try setting it to the default browser for now.
Now go to Tools/Internet Options/Advanced and click "Reset", OK any UAC prompts and click Apply and OK.
Close and reopen IE and go to Tools/Manage Add-ons and re-enable all the add-ons you want. (The above exercise disabled them all).
See if it works now. If not.....
Run the McAfee Preinstall Tool from the following link and try to install the Product, let us know if the issue persists: http://download.mcafee.com/products/...PreInstall.exe
If that fails to cure the situation then I suggest Technical Support Chat at top left of the page.
Sorry for the slow reply, college got busy
I hadn't updated IE at all since I got the PC as I only ever use firefox. I only had an early version of IE7 :o McAfee installed fine after updating. Thanks for the help!
Glad you are OK now. It's important to keep all aspects of the system up to date regardless of whether or not you use them.
Marking as solved. Good luck.
