Some files might have been corrupted somehow.

As per the error, you need to uninstall Mcafee and then reboot the computer. Then once your windows boots back, re-install Mcafee from the CD you purchased. That should solve any corruption problems.

Need help uninstalling?  Click Start -> Run, then type appwiz.cpl and press enter. You will get the Add/Remove programs. Go down and select Mcafee Total Security and click on remove and follow the simple instructions on the screen.

Your programme update to renew subs for 1 year has wiped off my Mcafee programme how can I get it back


We don't sell programs. We try to answer (most technical) questions.
I think I have to give you a free advice.
Install the free Microsoft Security Essentials en never pay a penny for virus programs again. To add security, only allow yourself to work in a non Admin account. As soon as any program is asking for admin rights, you know something wants to be installed, what you did not start in the first place. and just answer no.
Saves money and frustration.

How to register with Mcafee 12 months free internet security 2013. this is included when i buy acernotebook.


After purchasing a McAfee program online or from your local computer software retail store, the program must be registered on the official McAfee website to receive product updates.
These product updates keep your software's virus definitions current, preventing new viruses from infecting your computer.
Once your product is registered, you will receive free virus definition updates for the length of your McAfee AntiVirus subscription, which is usually one year.
To maintain computer protection, renew your subscription annually.

Visit the McAfee registration page using the link Below.
http://software.mcafee.com/support/cust_care/reg_intro.asp
Click the circle next to the option detailing how your software was acquired, and click the "Continue" button to proceed with the registration process.

Enter your full name, address, phone number and zip code in the appropriate fields.
Enter your email address, and select where you purchased the software.

Click the drop-down menu next to "Product" and select the name of your software from the menu. Enter the product identification number found on the bottom of your purchased software box, or enter the activation number sent to your email address after you purchased the software.
Click the "Submit" button to finalize the registration.
McAfee will send an email to you confirming the completion of the registration.

I renewed my subscription on 10 March, Order No. NP12650135, but continue to get reminders to renew on your reminder pop-ups. Please input my renewal to reflect that subuscription has been renewed.


This is an issue that frequently comes up. Please make sure that you have your product key from your new subscription stored (the MyNorton account is a useful place to store the data since you can cut and paste the number into Norton IS).

First check if NIS 2009 has your correct subscription information. Start the program, click on Help and Support > Subscription Status. Click Finish when that window finishes its activity.

If it is still confused, my solution is to update to Norton Internet Security 2010 (no cost to you).

One way to do this is through the Norton Update Center:
http://updatecenter.norton.com/?NUCLANG=en

The other is to use the Norton Removal Tool:
ftp://ftp.symantec.com/public/english_us_canada/removal_tools/Norton_Removal_Tool.exe
After the product removes all trace of any Norton product and rebooting your computer, if you have a good internet connection, it will lead you through downloading and installing the updated product. I recommend the Removal Tool since frequently the error you report is due to NIS not correctly updating the registry when the new subscription is updated.

I hope this helps.

If i restore my dell inspiron 9400 to its original factory settings will it delete XP updated files received over the past couple of years and will it affect my security McAffe that i subscibe to?


Yes it will. I suggest that you download Windows XP SP2, and Windows XP SP3 and save to an external USB key or burn to a CD-R. If you save the downloads to your HD, restoring to factory settings will most likely overwrtite your HD. So with that. I also suggest that you backup all your personal data, such as documents, pictures, favorite, email contact list, emal messages, and any other personal data that you will need.

Once you have finished the restore to factory process, place the USB key or CD-R in the slots/drive, and install SP2 first, check no restart button, then install SP3. Reboot and now do your Windows Updates.

The reason I suggest sp2, then sp3 before running Windows update, is to save you time getting your unit back in production. If you did a Windows update after the restore to factory process, you would most likely be prompted to download and install SP2, then all the patches and updates would follow fro sp2. This way sp2 updates sp1, then sp3 updates sp2, and finally the updates and security patches for sp3 are all you need.

McAfee - Again download the software to a USB key or CD-R. Before you start the restore, open McAfee, select help, about, and print out or write down your subscription key. You will need these when you reinstall McAfee on your restored unit.

Hope this helps.............

God Bless !!!!!!!

Downloaded Mcafee internet security 1 year subscription and nothing has appeared on my computor


you better be getting that for free.. other wise you may be wasting your money.. mcafee is not one the best antivirus known out there.

keep in mind that downloading the antivirus is not the same as installing the antivirus and getting it to run.. so look for the installation package you download and look for a file that's called setup.exe and run it to actually install the antivirus. once install, configure automatic updates for your antivirus and you should see the macfee icon on the system tray (bottom rigth area where the clock is).
