I'm having the same problem here, on 2 PCs.
Both already have Internet Security 2009 on them, but was running it to get the new version.
It starts up, takes the login credentials, then goes to:
An unexpected error has occurred. The login process has experienced an unexpected server access error. Please try again.
The only option then is to click Close, which gives you:
You canceled the installation before we could finish installing your software.
To ensure your PC is protected against the latest threats, we recommend that you install your McAfee software now.
So not only will it not install - it rubs salt in the wound too!
Hi Arcanic81 and mikeW,
Sorry for the inconvenience caused in downloading the programs , It’s a known issue and its been reported to the engineering team. They are working on it get it resolved. Please try the installation after a couple of hours. In the meanwhile, I will keep in touch with them and update you on the status.
I have been trying all day to download purchased total protection and the results were the same as above.
Do we know yet when this problem will be fixed?
Looking at the other problems on this page I am beginning to wish I hadn't paid out the money.
My AVG free was no problem, just thought I should get a little more protection.
If I can't dowload tomorrow I will go for a refund. Spent hours on free chat, clicking things on and off, never once did they suggest it was a McAfee problem.
Not a happy bunny
I am still having the same problem. Is there any way to fix it?
Could you please provide me with the following details ;

Please get back to me with the above details , we can get this one resolved for you .

Hello, I just purchased Mcafee total protection and I managed to download the DMSetup successfully. I’m experiencing the same problems as everyone else.
My OS is Windows 7 (64bit). I’m traveling right now and I’m accessing the internet through “BT Openzone wireless broadband” in the UK.
Here are the screenshots:
