Could you please update us with the below details;
What is the operating system installed?
What Service pack?
Did you try running MVT If not yet, please run the same from http://mvt.mcafee.com and post your session id back here
SP1 being installed now, with much trouble.
Once SP1 is installed, should I run MVT first and then install MCaFEE AGAIN, OR INSTALL mCaFEE FIRST THEN RUN mvt ?
This poblem has been resolved by upgrading Vista to SP1
Vista has an SP2,
It is recommended that you download SP2.
Thank you for the confirmation, & glad that you are OK now.
I have a similar problem to that outlined by funkmasterj. I receive a pop-up dialog with the message "please restart your pc to upgrade to the latest version of mcafee security center" once a day. Once I restart then I am clear until the next day.
Windows XP Pro, Service Pack 3
TS100430.bat (suggested from other posts) did not help.
No other McAfee installs in place.
Are you using System Restore a lot by any chance or restoring from backups frequently? Also chedck you system clock is accurate both time and timezone-wise.
This could also be caused by the frequent use of registry cleaners and optimizers.
Best cure is to uninstall in the normal manner via Control Panel/Add or Remove Programs
Theh run the MCPR cleanup tool listed under Useful Links at the top of this page
Reboot and reinstall from your online account.
I gave up. I eliminated MacAfee (which was free from my Internet Provider) and went with a combo of PCTools Spyware and Micrsoft Security Essentials. In the end, it is less obstrusive, faster, and seems to catch more stuff.
