          If you're here to ask a question about McAfee products, then ask. If you're here to rant and foam at the mouth, you'll be banned from these forums in double-quick time.

           

          Which is it to be?

           

          Your other post in the Business Section was misplaced and totally out of order, and I've consigned it to perdition.

            Good luck is all I can say as I doubt Norton would behave any better with that attitude.  Posting in all caps is termed 'shouting' in net parlance and therefore considered rude, apart from being difficult to read. 

             

            Also opening with a confrontational, insulting approach is no way to obtain help from anyone, we are all unpaid volunteers here and don't take too kindly to that approach.

             

            I gather from another now removed post that you have Windows 7 32-bit - is it up to date?   If it was it would be Windows 7 SP1.  (Help with installing that HERE.)

             

            What version of Internet Explorer is installed?  That can affect how McAfee behaves.  (Open IE and go to Help > About).

             

            What other security software have you now or have you had installed and was this installation new or an upgrade from an older version?

             

            Are you in the habit of using registry cleaners?

             

            What kind of problems are you getting; popups, errors etc?   Without more explanation we can't really offer any suggestions as we aren't mind readers.

             

            Lastly, if you really want a refund there is no problem getting one as long as it's within 30 days of purchase., just contact Customer Service linked under Useful Links above.

              To nijaiseeyou:

               

                    Although, I am not a moderator as Hayton and Peter are, I most certainly concur with their respective responses to your posting in the McAfee forums.  You just joined the forums 1 day ago and your first posting is reprehensible! 

               

              Yet, despite your obvious lack of tact & interactive etiquette...both Hayton and Peter were still willing to try and assist you with your problem.  I should think you would at least have the decency to express some appreciation to them

               

              They both volunteer many hours of their respective time in trying to help McAfee product users with problems they may be experiencing.

               

              I strongly suggest you lose the attitude if you ever expect to obtain any kind of assistance on-line...anywhere!
