Just a suggestion or two..
If you haven't already, please do two things.. First, disable UAC (User Account Control) for your user..
Open the Control Panel (Classic Style), then double click on "User Accounts", then in the "Turn User Account Control (UAC) on or off", UNCHECK the box for "User Account Control". Reboot the computer.
Once that's done, Vista may warn you of the lack of security by throwing a red or yellow warning shield in the lower right corner/system tray. You can disable that as well by opening Control Panel, then the "Security Center" icon, then select the "Don't Notify me and don't display the icon".
Once that's done, navigate to the updater program (mcupdate.exe file, I think), RIGHT click on the file, choose "Run as administrator".
Hope this helps.
but can I turn the UAC on again, after I've done all of that? It is not the problem that it doesn't update. The update works fine, but not the AutoUpdate.
Does the McAfee Framework Service have permissions in your firewall to contact the internet?
Do you mean the firewall port settings in the vista firewall? which ports are used then?
Since i didn't change my router settings they should be fine. But still, if it would be a firewall issue why does the update via right click on the taskbar work?
Anyways, I will check the firewall settings as soon as I get home.
Ok folks, I've checked the Vista firewall and found the "..McAfee\Common Framework\FrameworkService.exe" in the exception list. So that should be finde.
I don't like the idea of turning UAC off. Does anyone have a system running Vista with activated UAC?
I run with it on
Any ideas oder special setting you had to do?
Nothing just installed it and let it and let it run
