Multiple possibilities here..
1. Yes, before installing VirusScan, you need to remove ALL other antivirus programs and that includes previous version of McAfee.. Please do so.
2. Refusing to accept the "Terms Of Service" for your program would certainly cause an issue.. If accepting the TOS fixes the problem on one machine, you clearly know the answer.
3. Try changing the settings on the "McAfee Engine Service" and the "McAfee McShield" service, so the "Recovery" tab, "First Failure" and "Second Failure" say, "Restart the Service" instead of "Take no action".
4. If you're using Vista, try disabling User Account Control (UAC) and see if it fixes the issue.
Hope this helps.
This is on an XP machine.
Thanks a lot for the effort, unfortunatly the bloody thing still won't work.
I booted in safe mode and removed everything I could find regarding Mcafee, even in the register. I've applied the removal tool, I've tried using different versions but nothing seems to work.
This should fix your issue with the 8.7 disabling after reboot the problem is dynamic disk related its and issue that is known. The below registry edit on the three entries in the registry has taken care of the issues that I was experiencing.
Awesome, that did the trick. Thanks!
That worked for me too! thanks muchly happy
Hi, what were the registry edits?
NOTE: There is no removal tool for McAfee corporate products. Please do NOT use the consumer product removal tool.
