Windows Starter Edition is basically the least compatible Version of Windows. In order for your McAfee Software to install and function properly. You will need to have the minimum of *Windows Home Premium* installed.
Please read; Windows 7 Starter Edition: Explanation
If I am not terribly mistaken you will be required to *Upgrade* your notebook to meet McAfee's Software/System requirements. Of course it is best to remove your McAfee Products/Software before you do so. Go to your Control Panel/Programs and Features/Select your McAfee products/Remove/Uninstall/Restart.
Follow up by running the latest MCPR Tool/Restart. Then upgrade your Notebook OS. Afterwards you can then go to your McAfee Account and download /install.
I hope this helped...
Thanks for the information. For some reason I can now do what I have been trying to do for quite some time.
I did just upgrade the memory in my computer from 1 to 2 GB. Maybe that helped.
I have this old computer that had gotten very slow. But I don't use it very much, just for travel which I don't do very much either.
I have done some things to make it faster with the memory upgrade, SSD, and a disc cleanup, but internet is kind of slow. I wanted to disable the McAfee stuff to see if that was the problem.
It wasn't. I will probably not do much more.
You are quite welcome. Yes indeed increasing your memory will improve your system performance. So you can now access your McAfee settings and features? Are your Virus Scan Engine versions current, and can you perform a Scan? And does your McAfee UI display that *Your Computer is Secure* If that is the case then you should be OK.
