          I would redownload MCPR and rerun it this after a reboot.


          Will point a tech to thread if above not work

                        Hi Daria,




                        I sugessest you to try these steps to check if it helps.


                        Can you try deleteing the McAfee folders from below mentioned locations and try running MCPR again.


                        IN Xp:


                        C:\Program Files\McAfee

                        C:\Program Files\common files\McAfee

                        C:\Documents and setting\All users\application data\McAfee


                        In Vista & Win 7

                        C:\Program Files\McAfee

                        C:\Program Files\common files\McAfee

                        C:\program Data\ McAfee


                        the files may have been hidden so enable the hidden files and folders options from Tool> Folder Options> View


                        Also please navigate to

                        In XP:Start> All programs> Accessories>System tools> Scheduled Tasks and delete MCCleanUp if you have any.

                        In Vista  it sold be named as task scheduler and delete MCCleanUp if you have any




                        Run Mcpr once the restart the computer and run it again. let us know how it goes!!!!


                        I believe cleanup incomplete happens because of some very older traces or permission issues in the Computer.

                          3. In the Open box, type cmd, and then click OK.
                          4. At the command prompt, typemsiexec.exe /unregister, and then press ENTER.
                          5. Type msiexec /regserver, and then press ENTER.
                          6. Restart the computer and run MCPR again
