McAfee Common Framework returned error fffff95b @ 2

I am unable to complete the UPDATE NOW, on my VirusScan ENTERPRISE 8.7.0i

 

Error msg:  FAILED TO INITIALIZE COMMON UPDATER SUBSYSTEM.  MAKE SURE THE MCAFEE FRAMEWORK SERVICE IS RUNNING.  MCAFEE COMMON FRAMEWORK RETURNED ERROR fffff95b @2.

 

~~~System: ACER / Genuine Intel(R) CPU U2300 @1.20 GHZ / Windows 7 HOME Premium / 2.00 GB~~~~        

 

Steps that I have followed so far, with no luck:

 

Step 1 - Allow McAfee services to be stopped (applies to VSE 8.5i and later)

  1. Click Start, Programs, McAfee, VirusScan Console.
  2. Right-click on Access Protection and select Properties.
  3. Deselect Prevent McAfee services from being stopped.
  4. Click Apply.
  5. Close VirusScan Console.
Step 2 - Stop the Framework service
  1. Click Start, Run, type services.msc and click OK.
  2. Right-click the McAfee Framework Service and select Stop.
  3. Close the Services window.
     

Step 3 - Register all the DLLs in the Common Framework directory

  1. Click Start, Run, type CMD and click OK.
  2. Type the appropriate command below and press ENTER:

    For VirusScan Enterprise 8.5i and later: cd \Program Files\McAfee\Common Framework
    For VirusScan Enterprise 8.0i: cd \Program Files\Network Associates\Common Framework

    NOTE: The  above are default installation directories. If you specified a  different directory during installation, use that location instead.

  3. To re-register the files, type the following command and press ENTER:
    for %m in (*.dll) do regsvr32 /s %m

  4. Wait for the DLL registrations to take place.
Step 4 - Register all the DLLs in %SystemRoot%\System32

Some of the shared McAfee DLLs are located in the %SystemRoot%\System32 folder.
  1. To navigate to the System 32 folder, type the following command and press ENTER:
    CD %SystemRoot%\System32
  2. To register all the files in the System32 folder, type the following command and press ENTER:
    for %m in (*.dll) do regsvr32 /s %m
  3. Wait for the DLL registrations to take place, then close the command prompt window.
Step 5 - Restart the McAfee Framework Service
  1. Click Start, Run, type services.msc, and click OK.
  2. Right-click the McAfee Framework Service and select Start.
  3. Close the Services window.
  4. Initiate an AutoUpdate. ------ ******* THIS PART OF STEP # 5, STILL GAVE ME THE ERROR MSG LISTED ABOVE again!!!******

 

Step 6 - Do not allow McAfee services to be stopped (applies to VSE 8.5i and later)

 

  1. Click Start, Programs, McAfee, VirusScan Console.
  2. Right-click on Access Protection and select Properties.
  3. Select Prevent McAfee services from being stopped.
  4. Click Apply.
  5. Close VirusScan Console.

 

 

If anyone can offer any other suggestion - PLEASE DO!

THANK YOU!
