What do you mean by freezing?
I assume you mean the McAfee doesn't update anymore, I guess that is because your license has expired. If not, try contacting costumer support. If they do not provide a solution, try reinstalling the application.

I reinstalled windows xp and i go on to the internet explorer and it says the page cannot be displayed What can i do to fix it and i do not have internet


If NO Internet = NO Internet Service
You are perfect and I.E.8 is functioning properly.
Internet Browser ( I.E. 8.0 ) requires an active internet account and access to the internet. " Page Cannot Be Displayed " = no connection to the URL address in the address bar.

If you have active Internet Service =
Sounds like you have no connection to your router / modem
Confirm the following connections : LAN = network cable, or Telephone line, or Wireless network connection and password ?

Once connected to your Internet Service Provider
IF you're system is ( only ) " Auto-Updating " ?
Try this.. manually check for updates. When window opens, check for all types of updates ( default selection is " important ", "Recommended " etc )
Select the other ( optional ) choice. When the next window appears ...
on the left side default (1st choice ), Software (2nd choice ) Drivers / other (3rd choice) 2nd " Software " = contains "optional" network update drivers and software = after downloading and installing updates ... machine re-start will be required for completion ...
REPEAT PROCESS EACH OF THE THREE TYPES OF UPDATES
Windows would continually find additional auto updates after each optional installation ... additional optional updates will become available, as a result of auto updating adding more updates ...
( " Lather, Rinse Repeat " ) Repeat processes, until all updates ( auto, optional, drivers ) show "0" available.
The system will now be updated.
please excuse, if the exact word of the choice is not exact, XP has been replaced 3x over.
If you find this was helpful, please remark positively

How has mcafee let vires that has totaly wreck my computer, and as i pay sky for mcafee my contract is with sky and not mcafee i have sent three emails and not had a reply yet


There is no such thing as a perfect anti-virus program. The very best of them will only catch about 92--95% of potential viruses that they scan. And if you happen to click on the wrong thing or go to the wrong web page that is all ti takes to get an infection.

Mcafee is actually a pretty good antivirus program. If it is updated with the latest virus signatures it should be able to catch and kill most viruses other than the very latest new ones. Those new ones if they are differant may not be recognized as a virus until the next update.

Until you hear from Sky? I would sugest you update mcaffee and run a boot scan if your version has that option. Make sure it is set to scan all files and archives. That should help if not clean out the virus.

Uninstall, then at next boot, press F8, when menu come up, choose SAFE MODE, when window comes up, choose SYSTEM RESTORE. When calendar comes up, choose time before McAfee was installed follow instructions, then finished reboot, now problem should be gone.

McAfee not updating


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.

Move location of mcafee site advisor toolbar


Ok if you were like me and updated your mcafee security and it updated your siteadvisor it moved it from by your status bar to your toolbar. I uninstalled mcafee internet security, then reinstalled it using the custom setting. After you do that do not install siteadvisor. Once all that is done install mcafee siteadvisor for firefox on its own and this should solve the problem it worked for me.
