Along with the above instructions , please check the following before we reinstall McAfee;
1.From the Taskbar, click Start, and Run.
2.In the Run field, type notepad %WINDIR%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts then click OK.
Note: This will open the 'hosts' file in Notepad.
3. Remove all lines referencing McAfee websites, or Network Associates International (NAI) websites.
Examples of such lines are:
- 69.299.33.21 bin.mcafee.com
- 220.127.116.11 nai.com
Note: You can ignore all lines that start with the # symbol
- Click File.
Close Notepad and try to update your McAfee product again

I tried that but only got a sample file,
I have tried to attach a screen print.
Thanks for your advice kiwi4life, I will do that but thought I would try Dinesh's suggestion first as it might be a quick solution.
Sorry the screen print did not work It simply explained how the data should be entered and gave two example lines, the only entry without a # was 127.0.0.1 Local host
