hi... may i know the operating system that we are working on?
please check also if you have the following in your add or remove program/programs and features:
msxml, java, microsoft .net framework
also, please check any updates from microsoft... download and install both critical and optional updates... then try reinstalling mcafee by first saving the DMSetup on your desktop and then running it as administrator...
hope this helps...
Hi. I am also having the problem of the installation getting stuck on the gathering download information window. I am on a brand-new laptop bought today with vista sp1. Nothing whatsover has been added to this computer in the way of virus or security software. It came with a 30 day trial of Norton but I refused it at startup. I have installed all windows updates available at this point.
I have all 3 of those programs you mentioned in the remove programs list. What did you mean should be done about them?
Hello? Is anybody out there? Still haven't figured this out.
Comcast doesn't have Security Center 9 yet.
I see you are posting elsewhere so please stick with 1 thread.
What does it mean "Comcast doesn't have Security Center 9 yet"? I have the Comcast security stuff on two other computers and one is running Vista. So why can't this new laptop run it? Does it have a different version of Vista than the other one?
And about the 2 threads thing, yeah well it seems that some threads got more action than others so I was hedging my bets since there were several threads dedicated to this exact problem. Maybe you could merge them? Just saying.
Anyway, can I or can I not use the Comcast free McAfee stuff on the new laptop? Please use small words and complete sentences.
Comcast are infamous for being the slowest at releasing the latest McAfee products to their customers - usually they take about a year, so their customers are always lagging behind.
There's nothing we can do about that.
Far better to start your own new thread when you first post. Mutliple posting only dilutes the help you get as we are stretched pretty thin. Posting on someone else's thread usually also isn't liked by the original poster.
There's nothing stopping you installing McAfee on any platform, as long as it isn't XP x64 as that isn't supported.
