    System Restore disabled McAfee. McAfee won't update.

      Hello,

       

      I'm running a Dell Studio XPS 16 (or 17, I can't remember) with Windows 7.

       

      I recently ran into a problem where I could no longer boot into Safe Mode. I tried a few different simple fixes before deciding to do a System Restore.

       

      I've done System Restores in the past, and I understand McAfee needs to update after a Restore.

       

      The problem with this System Restore is that McAfee won't update.

       

      I've tried going in and clicking "update", but even though the icon of searching for updates shows up, it goes away mere seconds later without an update.

       

      To make matters worse, the System Restore didn't fix my Safe Mode problem. But that isn't McAfee's fault as far as I know.
