    Error Message: Updates not installed

      I keep getting the above error message along with "Cab installer object.  Agent service not working".  Until recently I did not have this problem.  Any ideas on what might have caused the updates to stop installing?  I have checked the firewall.  I can scan the computer, just not get updates.  I am running XP Pro.  Thanks.

          I've moved your post to our Home & Home office area for better attention.

            Hi decarlevato,

            Could you please let us know some of the below information ;


            What is the operating system installed ?
            Did you have / Do you currently have any other  security software in the PC ?

            Do you received any alerts in the computer while going online .

              Operating System is XP Pro

              No other security software is running

              No alerts appear on the screen

              DSL Connection

              I can't post a screenshot but  the error message is:  "The last automatic update did not complete successfully"  It appears when you place the mouse arrow over the red McAfee shield in the system tray.


              When I open the console the Security Center Communication is red with an update failure notice.  The troubleshooting tips do not help.
