    Damn total protection - Never works

      I bought this virus called "Total Protection Service" for our company for 25 computers. It never worked. In fact, we are working now more than before to fix "MCafee" errors than virus issues. I found this product just useless.


      The latest problem is this window that pops-up on everyone of our machines - myui://Update.htm/ Do you want to continue running this script? Upon pressing 'anything', nothing works. Our productivity is now taken for a ride and all my developers come back with the excuse that their systems are not working. Honestly, some do not work because there is no virus scanner.


      We had similar issues before and everytime we had to 'silently' install the new version. I don't know why update cannot do it. This is a manual process and we will have to download the 100+ MB executable again and again.


      I am so tired.. I believe I am going to Kasperski now.

            Dont you hate it when tech support cant read between the lines. I believe the issue you are describing is due to internet explorer security settings. you need to add the webpage of myui://Update.htm/ to the trusted site list. along with any other future pages that are blocked with myui://

              Well.. I appreciate your response. This issue has been closed. We are a development shop and we can't afford our developers coming back with excuses of their 'systems not working'.


              We actually opened a support call with mcafee. It kept on changing hands - three engineers in three weeks responding at their own convenient time. They expect us to explain the problem again and again as they change.


              Adding it to secure pages - We tried it and it didn't work. We had to complete remove mcafee using mcafee tools (MCPR, mvsuninst). Then we downloaded the latest code and manually installed it on all the systems letting them to download the defs file again.


              We got rid of this anyway now. We went with a different av software which has been working like an angel since we got it in.


              Thank you once again.
