Sometimes MVT will find errors that it can't fix. Have you by any chance been using registry cleaners/optimizers on that machine? This is often the result. There are other causes too of course.
The best way to fix that is to uninstall in the normal manner using Control Panel/Programs/Uninstall a Program (Vista/Windows7), Add or Remove Programs (XP)
Then run the MCPR cleanup tool listed under Useful Links at the top of this page or here: http://download.mcafee.com/products/licensed/cust_support_patches/MCPR.exe .
Reboot and then reinstall directly from your account, which in the case of a US-based Dell user would be here: https://us.mcafee.com/root/login.asp?affid=105
MVT reports that this file is also missing from my McAfee installation (Internet Security 2010). The full path it gives for the expected location is
The file is in fact present on my PC in the directory
It looks as if "%mvt_lcid%" is interpreted as something other than "2057".
From MVT I reported this to McAfee Support via the email option. When I get a reply (and if it throws any light on this) I'll post an update in this thread.
That file in 2011 version is in the "C:\Program Files\McAfee\VirusScan\" folder Peter yours is the 2010 version still correct?
the file is the OEM version identifier so the dell version could be elsewhere or MVT has a bug.
Still got 2010. 2011 will arrive on my PC eventually :-)
It's an MVT or VirusScan issue, because the error has only appeared in the past week, possibly after the latest VirusScan update yesterday (the 17th) - although this file was created last March (dates are dd--mm-yy). There are no duplicate files with that name anywhere else.
I have BT netprotect plus (McAfee) and i have the same issue
Same folder and same 2010 version ie security centre 10.5?
If so Peter ask on Monday's call if any news re this from tech support?
Same folder - Yes
As far as I know Bt netprotect plus is the same as the 2010 version ( i have the latest- I think)
Last Update 17/09/2011
hope this helps
Could be a MVT and 2011 issue will test my 2011 install.
Installed latest MVT worked fine no warnings
Dan_g is yours 2010 as well?
