Thank you, I did what you recommended and it did work. I still got the message about the program not tested for the Windows logo for compatability with Windows XP at least a dozen times and each time I clicked on install anyway..after the 12th time it finally did go ahead and install. I cannot beleive that the Mcafee AintiVirus Plus program is not tested for compatablity with Windows XP so why did I have so much of a problem with the installation?
Please help me,
I have a anti virus plus (3 licence).
I correctly installed it on my Windows Vista PC
Now I'm having trouble installing it on my PC with Windows XP (SP3 1,73 Ghz / 1 Gb)
After reinstalling this message never came up again.
I have made sure that i don't have any mallware on my PC
I installed McPreInstall and ran it.
Each time trying to install the anti virus plus, it stopped and saying: (i have to translate this from Dutch) De safety-functions can't be installed. Try to reinstall the software, run "Mcafee Virtual Technician" or contact McAfee for more information.
The virtual technician can't find any software (of course not! It didn't install!) I've tried reinstalling about twenty times!
So you guys are my final hope.
What can i do??
I can't help you, but I discovered the same problem on my Windows XP machine.
After first time installing, no internet acces whose possible. No browser, no email. Many other programs didn't start at all, while no firewall was activ.
After uninstalling and a new download, it seemed to be succesfull: McAfee was updating and a full scan reported no problems at all, also Windows is up to date. Fot that time I could read my mail again. After a reboot (the other day) the same problems occoured.
I decided to uninstall it for the time I can't find a good answere on my problems.
Uninstall using the MCPR tool (useful links tab above) reboot run the Mcpreinstall tool mentioned below and retry the install.
