What system and service pack are you using and is it 32 or 64-bit & up to date with Windows updates? Also how much memory and free hard drive space do you have?
Plus where are you installing from, CD or online...ISP etc.?
I'm using an SP2 32-bit I believe and I have 25.9GB free space left. I'm getting it online not through a CD. I just tried it again and it DID go all the way through but when it got to the Security Center/Virus Scanner/Ect., all 3 failed to install and told me to re-install it again just like it did yesterday. Any solutions?
SP2...Vista or XP? How much memory do you have installed (RAM)?
There could be three factors at play here - insufficient memory, infection or leftovers from another installation.
First, enable Windows Firewall to provide you some protection.
Check for spyware/,alware using the free version of these two tools, update them before running and let them remove anything they find.
If that fails then try running the MCPR removal tool linked in my signature & reboot and retry.
If it indicates that it was unsuccessful run it again and reboot then retry.
Another thing that sometimes helps, assuming you have either IE7 or 8 installed (you should have 8 even if you don't use it) - go to IE Tools/Internet Options/Advanced and click the Reset button. OK any prompts and click Apply and OK.
Close and reopen IE and go to Tools/Manage Add-Ons and re-enable the add-ons.
McAfee relies on an up to date IE working at its default settings.
I run Windows XP with 2GB of RAM and also, what did you mean by 'OK any prompt'? I'm also trying the three links you suggested me to use right now.
Thanks, you should be using SP3 by now so when this is all over read here: http://community.mcafee.com/showthread.php?t=220807
I meant OK any prompts that Windows throws up asking if it's OK to proceed or "are you sure?", but usually that would only happen in Vista or Windows 7.
Anyway, good luck.
Those are all ancient products and have long since expired.
Your failed install is something to be concerned about. Best contact Technical Support Chat perhaps.
That can mean lots of things - infections, competing products installed etc. etc.
Uninstall any products that may compete with McAfee and run a scan using the free version of these two tools and let them remove anything they find. reboot if asked to.
