I can't access McFee protection on my Dell pc. The McAfee icon has disappeared from desk top and the link at the bottom right hand side of screen doesn't work.

The advantage of using McAfee is they have a very good support system. Google 'McAfee support' and take it from there. I have found the live chat with a McAfee to be very good.

McAfee Integrated Security Platform Installer has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Not only Uninstalling & Reinstalling the McAfee Program would help, because usually you'd get this Error During the Installation. The Reason for this Error is because of the Windows Update (McAfee is Disigned on the Windows Platform).

Things that Needs to be checked here are:

1. Update Windows:
- Open IE (Internet Explorer).
- Click on the TOOLS or SAFETY (If the IE version is IE v.8).
- Select Windows Update.
- Ensure that All Windows Updates are Installed on the Computer.

2. Installing MSXML 3 & 4:
- Check if you already have MSXMLs installed on your Computer by going to START >> CONTROL PANEL >> ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS or PROGRAMS >> PROGRAMS & FEATURES (In Case of Windows Vista/7).
- If you find MSXMLs, Uninstall them & then Restart the Computer.
- Download and Reinstall MSXML version 3 (MSXML3.msi only).
- Restart the computer.
- Download and install MSXML version 4 (MSXML.msi only).
- Restart the computer.
- Run McAfee Consumer Products Removal tool (MCPR.exe) from
- Reinstall the McAfee Program.

Thank You!

Generic PUP.x is being detected by my mcafee scan and then i try to remove it and it states it cannot be completely removed

It's a virus that Mcafee can't fix.You can get Spybot search and destroy,and remove it.Just make sure you update and imunize before running.
