    [2017] Anti-virus won't respond suddenly, now unable to install


      Hello All,


      This started last weekend when Mcafee notifications popped out saying that my Anti-Virus Real Time Scanning has been turned off. Whenever I click it to On, it would go back into Off.

      I then decided to un-install the whole product and tried to install it again. I have done the following:

      • Uninstall Mcafee Software
      • Used CC Cleaner to clean up
      • Used the Mcafee Remover Tool


      I have done these three items, and I was able to re-install the software. (Funny though because the installer did not prompt for any product key which was along with the download I got from the official website.) However, the Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware was left uninstalled by the kit. I tried downloading the feature from my Mcafee Internet Security Application, but keep on getting an "unsuccessfully installed" message. I then downloaded the Virtual Technician to identify the problem. Listed below are the findings of the Virtual Technician:

      I saw on one post here about Resetting Defaults of Internet Explorer. I tried to follow through by resetting the default and install the feature again, to no luck, I still get an "Unsucessfully installed."




      Hoping that someone could help me with this problem as I am currently have no anti-virus for 3 days now..



      Thank you to those who will respond!
