    McAfee VirusScan Plus installer problem

      Hi all.
      I have a computer with Windows Vista Home Premium (32b), with SP1.
      It had Mcafee VirusScan Plus installed but it needed to renew the subscription.
      I renewed it through my account and then downloaded the DMSetup.exe file.
      When I tried to install it, it would show me a screen with the progress bar and then it went completely blank and made a sound like a browser refreshing automatically.
      I tried to let it work for a while to see if it does something, but it just goes on forever...

      I thought it could be caused by the already installed version of McAfee so I uninstalled it. So now I have a computer with no anti-virus protection and I can't install McAfee. I tried inserting this on the console in admin mode

      regsvr32 jscript.dll
      regsvr32 vbscript.dll

      and also tried to download this: http://download.mcafee.com/products/licensed/cust_support_patches/IERegFix.bat and it gives me an error (or at least I think it's an error) "2 not expected"

      after all this McAfee still doesn't install.

      Please help.
      Thanks.

          Solved! You can close this thread.
          I tried everything, rebooting, etc. Than I just gave up and turned off the laptop.
          After a while I turned the laptop back on and just tried it again just one more time to see if it works and it did!
          • 2. security center won't install
            i had security center for three years, and i liked it. Got amessage that i needed to reinstall so i deleted then attempted reinstall, program stopped at"checking compatibility". just sat there not doing much at all. i contacted McAfee about it, they sent me everywhere and emailed bunches of links, but nothing has worked, and worse, one of the McAfee techs said that i wasn't entitled to help because i didn't contact them within 30 days of renewal. Now i am paid up till 2010, so i think i'm entitled, anybody know how to fix this?, Btw, i used the mcpr program, but that din help either.:mad:
