          You most likely need to run the cleanup tool for whatever the software was you had before.   The McAfee installer is probably detecting remnants of that software and balking at installing.


          This is Windows 7 SP1 I trust and to ensure McAfee user interface functions correclty you should also have IE9 installed at default settings, even if you don't use it as your browser.

            Adding to Peter’s notes, it would be great if you post the screen shot of the error for better understanding

                  Is this Windows 7 SP1?


                  Are you totally up to date with all updates and have Windows Update set to look for updates for all components using Microsoft Update?  


                  On the forums we can only speculate as to the problem, the technicians are far more likely to find the solution.

                    Hi yes all upto date the tech guy on phone call yesterday checked all that and he couldn't figure it out ?

                      OK thanks.  Let's hope that call comes in then.  Sometimes they get held up on other cases and can't always be punctual.

                          That's too bad I could have emailed someone to hurry the process up.  Never mind.  All you're ever going to read in any forum like this are complaints.  People never post otherwise, well hardly ever.  Norton/Symantec forums are full of the same as are most of the other brand name forums.


                          Good luck with your new software.
