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.

Won't power on. Was running mcafee then restarted and was updating system. And stopped


Windows 8, 8.1 and 10 do not need extra antivirus stuff. Windows has got it within the OS. Adding extra has probably deleted some system files.

My dell vostro 1015 laptop freezes intermittently. when this occurs, all buttons and the cursor will just freeze (fails to respond). i then had to force shutdowm by holding down the power button for 5secs....


When does your system freeze? Shortly after booting or my this be an overheating problem? When Laptops / PCs core temperature is too high they tend to stop responding. Maybe it could also be a driver related problem. Can you reproduce the error or is it happening only when you browse certain websites, etc?

MSN Camera Problems


If you have both McAfee SiteAdvisor and Windows Live Messenger 2009 installed, please take the following actions until a patch is out from McAfee because there are some incompatibility problems.

The workaround is pretty simple. All you need to do is to disable McAfee SiteAdvisor from monitoring msnmgr.exe but there is no option to do that. You’ll have to manually go to C:\Program Files\McAfee\SiteAdvisor\ and look for the file sasets.ini. Open the sasets.ini with notepad or your favorite text editor, locate the section titled [msnmsgr.exe] and change the value to 0 (1 means enable and 0 means disable).

Save the file and close it. You can either restart your computer for changes to take effect OR simply terminate and reopen Windows Live Messenger 2009. Yeah it’s frustrating that Windows Live Messenger 2009 has so many bugs and incompatibilities but no worries, I’ll slowly help you all to look for solutions and workarounds to make it work rather than downgrading back to MSN 8.5. According to Wikipedia, Windows Live Messenger is no longer beta and the latest version is Build 14.0.8064.206 released on 12 February 2009. You can head on to Live Messenger to download the latest Live installer (wlsetup-custom.exe) which can automatically update your Messenger if it detected there’s an update.

3com 8 port hub not connecting to 2nd pc


Be sure that when you say its a hub that is indeed a layer 1 device which is just passing the signal and data along to all ports. Be sure to check the cable on the second device. At this point it must a straight cable you use to connect the PCs to the Hub. PCs transmit on pins 1 & 2 and Receive on 3 & 6. Hubs are the opposite. So a crossover will not work. You need PC pin 1 & 2 Tx to Hub Pin 1 & 2 Rx and over to PC pin 3 & 6 Rx to Hub pin 3 and 6 Tx. Tx = transmit and Rx = Receive. Also assign an IP address on each machine that is in the same subnet as each other. Such as PC1 192.168.1.100 mask 255.255.255.0 and PC2 IP address as 192.168.1.101 Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0 This way the 192.168.1 is the same for 8 PCs and the only change is the last number (octet). Also keep the speeds at either 10/100/1000 what ever the product is rated for but always keep the duplex half. Half is good because on a layer 1 hub, everyone is broadcasting at the same time. So you have to have half of all the ports listening at all times.

I hope this helps. My advice is to buy a layer 2 switch.

Laptop freezes


"I never shut it off " Hope u r hibernating the laptop.. It seems that ur lap is junked with a lot of registery files and starup files.. so it takes a lot of memory to perform its operations and subsequently it hangs up.. and i hope u have installed norton anti viurs. this antivirus needs a lot of resources. better u install Mcafee. The best thing u can do is to install a fresh copy of windows. this will solve ur problem.. and remember keep the startup items to the min level.
