Leiah, When you uninstalled the software did you also use the MCPR removal tool found at the top of this page under Useful Links? MCPR removes any remnants of the software that might be left behind that Add/Remove does not completely get out. You may just have a corrupted installation so it may work next time you reinstall. Worst case scenario is you could contact Technical Support Chat also found under Useful Links.
Yes I did use it. But thanks for the reply and for pointing out the 'helpful links' area.
So far nothing I have tried has worked and I still am not able to use Total Protection at this time. A man from McAfee support called me though and told me that this seems to be a compatibility problem with the new McAfee Total Protection and Windows 7 (which is my operating system). They are apparently working on coming up with a fix to the issue.. I havent heard anything as to whether it has been fixed or not though. Hopefully it will be soon.
I am not sure if I posted the last reply as a reply or new post... I'm still trying to figure out how to work the forum correctly... Thanks for your patience.
Leiah, it appears that you are posting correctly. If it appears here then you've replied OK.
It should work OK in Windows 7 and perhaps you should connect with Technical Support Chat to see what's causing the problem. It is linked under Useful Links at the top of this page.
They can enter your machine and troubleshoot.
Meanwhile so you are covered by some sort of anti-viru/spyware I recommend you try Microsoft Security Essentials.
