Right-click the taskbar icon and select Updates.
I've never seen that reaction before personally.
I am trying to reproduce the message
It will not paste-pity.
The heading of the message :-
" Run the McAfee update tool to fix this problem "
" This problem was caused by a Mcfee product which was created by McAfee, Inc. "
I have done what you said. My Laptop is on auto update and is done on a regular basis.
Thank you for you help-------------a fairly new experience for me.
Well if updating manually fails to stop the warning try the following:
1. Uninstall all McAfee programs through "Add or Remove Programs" in Windows "Control Panel".
2. Use the MCPR tool, see this article: How to remove supported McAfee consumer products using the McAfee Consumer Products Removal tool (MCPR.exe). This will remove all McAfee remnants from your computer. (you must have Windows Vista, XP or 2000 SP4 to use this tool)
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
If you can't find these files don't worry. It just means that MCPR has done its job.
4. Reboot and redownload/reinstall your McAfee products directly from your account at the McAfee web site.
ok and thank you. Very good service.
You're welcome. Let me know how it goes.
I sought the article you suggest but McAFEE says not recognised. Help!
Article? You mean the MCPR removal tool link? It works fine for me. Then try this: either click the link for it in my signature or click the Technical Support Chat link to speak with a real support Technician live.
In my opening question I said that I am from the UK.
Does this make any difference to recognising your link to the MCPR.exe?
