Getting a blank McAfee SecurityCenter window

I could not view the mcafee security window on my computer. And this has disallowed me to update security of my computer.
I contacted Mcafee and I was told that

"we found that you've installed Internet Explore beta Version 8.0.6001.18241 (Windows Internet Explorer 8 Beta 2) in your computer and this is responsible for the problem you are experiencing and your McAfee protection installed in the computer is working fine and intact".

Do I need to uninstall the window explorer? How do I uninstall it?

    I purchased McAfee Internet Security 2014 and am trying to install it. Your Quick Start Guide is not very helpful at all. Instructions are to go to mcafee.com/mis/retailcard and enter your registration number from the Quick Start Guide. When I go to the website I get all these other websites instead. Very very confusing and frustrating. How do I register the number when I don't know what site to go to next. I wish I had bought Norton again

Bought acer laptop 2 days ago but internet service is on 23/1/2014.currently using my company pc to install the McAFEE internet security but unavailable so what should i do


McAfee is not worth installing. It gets in the way and slows everything down plus it is a real problem when you get issues with windows. I would and do, install Microsoft Essentials. It is free and seems to work well. Don't bother until you are on line as it requires updates. Don't forget to uninstal McAfee!!!!!

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 http://download.mcafee.com/products/licensed/cust_support_patches/MCPR.exe
- Reinstall the McAfee Program.


Thank You!
