If your computer clock is correct, both time and time-zone, then run the Virtual Technician to see if it repairs anything: http://mvt.mcafee.com/
If that fails to work or doesn't help contact Technical Support via the link under Useful Links at the top of this page.
thank you, I ran Virtual Tech and there were a couple of issues resolved and one that needs tech support. looks like I'm on my way to getting this fixed.
also went to change the scheduled scan time and as soon as I hit the 'apply' button it got rid of the 1953 date. Thanks!
So the clock issue is fixed? It must have simply been an interface glitch. Sometimes running it again will fix whatever the other is, but if you need Technical Support they are there for you.
