When you signed up for the trial, You must have received your Log on information from McAfee.
I request you to please use that infromation and log on to :- www.mcafeeasap.com.
All you need to do is to reinstall the software. It is a sign of an installation gone wrong.
Thank you for the help Sameer. I reinstalled the firewall component as you suggested and that did away with the error. However, now when I open up the console it is telling me that the softwrare is not activated. When I try to activate it it tells me it can't because I don't have an internet connection, which I do. When I look at the computer in the McAfee security center, it still says that it is in the 60 day trial evaluation period. And the McAfee console on the computer says that my virus and firewall protection is enabled. So why would it think that the software is not activated?
