Unable to install IS 2011 on Windows 7 PC

Hi and thanks in advance for any help. I'm a longtime McAfee customer but I"ve been unable to install Internet Security 2011.


I'm on a PC platform running Windows 7 with all automatic updates in place.


My subscription for AntiVirus Plus 2011 expired last month, and I own a separate 3-user subscription of Internet Security 2011 that has two more installs valid into June. I've been trying to get one of these to install (working both from a downloaded install file and from the CD) and no luck. I continually get the same error message (asking for more time due to "trouble" and suggesting my Java may be improper). I've done a Java update so that shouldn't be an issue.


Out of desperation I completely uninstalled my prior version of McAfee (since it wouldn't update anymore anyway) thinking that may clear the road to the new install, but the same problems persist. I could really use some advice.


Thank you!
