In order for the McAfee Scanner Service to run, the DCOM Server Process Launcher service must be set to automatic not disabled.
Once I set it to automatic and rebooted, I was able to scan.
Good luck all above have in the past fixed this error message unfortunately the cause can be any of several.
I'm not having much luck.
Mcafee Virus Scan Version 15.5
DAT Version 6942

I hope this information will help to find a solution.
It seems like you are not running a latest version of McAfee. Please reinstall the McAfee from AU server and check with your issue
Uninstall the McAfee using the McAfee removal Tool HERE
Reinstall the McAfee
Please update me the outcome
I have reinstalled from the AU server but it installed the same version.
When you uninstalled it did you use the method Karthiks posted of windows uninstall method followed by MCPR? If you loged in with the country set to Au or Us/Uk you would get 12.1 UNLESS you get your mcafee from a partner. Do you say from an ISP or say Dell?
What affid is the product showing in Security centre details? karthiks can confirm if yours is 1 that should get 12.1.
If you did get it from Mcafee try runnin
before reinstalling from your account
Could you please update me the below versions
McAfee Security Center :
McAfee Virus Scan:
McAfee Security Center
Build version 11.6.443
McAfee Virus Scan
Build Version 15.6.238
I have recived my version of McAfee Anti Virus Plus via my employer. Is there no Fix for this version ???
Karthiks will check who the affid number is tied to and when they will update to 12.1 . Of course in the meantime you could uninstall and join the beta users who are on 12.1 and affid is no big deal (only 1 affid of 10 gets 11.6beta) and they can change your affid if you ask.
Thanks for your quick response, I will look at becoming a McAfee Beta Tester. And i will look foward to Karthiks's response.
