Vista drivers not working

When i log on I initially get an error message that Mcafee is not responding. I also can not log onto internet - not responding. I try and get ms updates - same message not responding. I have tried the few diagnostic tools - check memory - disk defrag/cleanup to no avail. I think there may be some type of virus that has turned off a number of key drivers. I don't know what to do.

    Thank you for your response.

    FireFox

    I haven't tried McAfee from the start menu. I will attempt it later. I'm not at the machine now.

    Windows defender is the only other and I scanned and it gave an all clear.

    Cable

    No wireless.

    I'm pretty careful about potential viruses but I think I must have got one and it has turned a lot of the functionality of the machine off.

Download Advanced System care 8 free online and install it.
Run it and on the second or third tab find a program called driver booster. Download and install it. Run it. It will take some time but it will upgrade your drivers to the newest latest drivers. As well as having your computer cleaned at the same time.

First let me ask a couple of questions --
what web browser do you use?
can you start McAfee from the start menu? Start -> Programs
Do you have any other visus scanners/removers on your system?
What kind of internet connection do you have Cable/DSL/Dial-Up?
and are you using a wireless device?

    the first thing we really need to do is get you on the internet so we can download some tools.

    if you haven't already, open up Internet Explorer and see if you can connect with it. sometimes certain viruses will kill a lot of functions but will leave let ie work, sort of.

    and are you running XP , XP pro or Vista and what service pack?

    find out by going to ---

    Start -> Control Panel -> System, the first page should have version and service pack.

    OH and just in case, do you have your windows installation disk with a valid key?

  • Brian Ebeling Dec 26, 2008

    Please be sure to try and run a FULL scan with McAfee if you can run it. and sorry i saw you're running vista, long day today :)

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.


Open your start menu and type "McAfee" in the search screen.

The error 'Unable to reach McAfee server' usually indicates a problem with the internet connection. Check if your internet connection works properly, if so: also check that McAfee has permission to go through any firewall that might be installed on your computer.

Alternatively, try to reinstall McAfee by downloading the setup application from the website.

How to fix error code 646 microsoft windows vista home premium software


* The solution, in a nutshell, is to disable your firewall. If you’re using McAfee Personal Firewall Plus, F-Secure Internet Security, Norton Internet Security or another Firewall vendor, see its respective support page for assistance in disabling it (temporarily). If you’re using the built-in Vista Firewall, keep reading.

* Open the Control Panel and select Security.

* Select Turn Windows Firewall on or off.

* Select Off (not recommended), click Apply and then OK.

* Back at the Windows Update screen, click the Try again button.

* The download(s) and installation should start…

* and this time successfully install. If a restart is required, make sure to re-enable your Firewall once your PC restarts.

* Though this solution will work for most Vista Update errors

Look for your Security Email Firewall settings (Mcafee, Norton , etc ). Got to Email protection > Disable Incoming \ Outgoing mail protection. That should do it.

Can not download any programs


Hi,
The windows backup feature does not back up any installed programs , it would only backup up your data files , but no exe files. But you are not able to install a fresh copy of the programs over the internet and from the cd.
Try installing these programs from in safe mode of windows . To start the computer you need to press the F8 key a couple of times before windows starts up.
If the same is not working you need to redo the operating system once again



Thanks
