Good luck. As you can see from my post below I had a similar issue. Any not much help here. Looks like a virus got past mcafee and will not allow me to reinstall any virus protection. Have to rebuild the system which is more than 8 yrs old.
Thanks for the reply bigred i had similar problem last month and had to resore my pc to factory settings then it would let me reinstall. But again Mcafee has let a virus through and im getting these new problems im feeling really let down by Mcafee
May I know whether do we receive any pop ups from any other security software in eth computer ?
Also post me with a screen shot of the error message you receive from mcafee .
Do you have any other security software installed in the computer ?
They will suggest that ad-aware and malware programs conflict with McAfee. I removed all and this have problems. Rebuilding the system will be interesting for me as it is 8yrs old and more of the backups are cloned with the virus.
