Thank you for your answer. After performing steps 1-3 I ran the installation file again, and it worked! I think that yesterday I might not have had IE as default browser (ran through Chrome) but using IE as default the installation completed successfully. Thanks again! :-)

Happy to Help
I am just thinking. Why does IE needs to be your default browser if you have to troubleshoot something with McAfee? Is it really a must? Thanks in advance..
That’s an integral part of our troubleshooting , just because McAfee relies upon Internet explorer for its display settings and any issues with Internet explorer might cause issues with your McAfee security products .
