1. is this a new download of MVT if not remove the old 1 and reinstall it.
2. Second try a full uninstall reinstall as per
3. If still an issue call support they might be able to say what is wrong.
Running vista is getting old Mcafee new versions do not support it that is why your install is an older version.
I will try the things you mentioned and get back to you. I realize Vista is a dinosaur but I don't know how to go on to something newer. Where do you go? How much will it cost? I'm lost!
Really depends on how much the laptop is worth to you. You are still protected by McAfee just it is not with the latest versions.
You can buy win 7/8 licences and upgrade the laptop though may not be worth doing so. See if the suggestions I gave help.
I uninstalled the copy of MVT (it was from April of this year) and ran the scan again and it came back with the same problem...Security Center 14.0.339 ; Ref # 1142849...Update trusted Microsoft Certificates...Restart Required.
On to your second idea... complete uninstall and re-install of total McAfee. I will try that next.
Question about your third presumption... You said newer versions of McAfee don't support/work with Vista. Are you certain about that? If that is true then I will not be able to renew with McAfee in April of 2017.
MVT finding a problem is not unusual and doesn't mean anything is wrong necessarily. You said your software was acting strangely, how so?
Vista is supported until at least its end of life on 17 April next year, 2017, but after that you are basically on your own. The software usually continues working with an expired system for about a year, but certain features will be degraded as they only pertain to the currently supported OS's.
That certificate issue may have something to do with the fact that Vista uses IE9, but of that I'm not sure.
Technical Support is free by phone or online chat if you wish to go that route and is linked at the end of your MVT session or HERE.
Update windows a CERT update for vista might be available.I did email a tech re this the update of windows and Chrome update if you use it was his suggestion if reinstall failed to help.
Thanks PK, I'll leave it to you ;-)
I have done as you asked. I did a complete uninstall of everything McAfee on this computer. Then I went to your website to re-install. When the re-install was completed and everything was configured and as it should be, I re-installed the MVT and ran it. The very same error codes came up again! And everything was brand new! I am at a loss.
I misspoke in my earlier post, my subscription ends 3/13/2017, not 4/2017.
