Can not get it to load on windows 10 it loads half way and quits

The software won't load if there are some incompatibilities with W10 which is highly likely when it was designed to work with former versions of Windows. You may have printer and scanning issues also.

I would dump W10 and restore the original Windows system you had before. Save all your files to another device(or you will lose them) and run a factory default restore and that should reinstall the original operating system on your computer. Any software you loaded will disappear when you do this. When that is done you will be able to load your software without it quitting on you.

Cannot bring up mcaffee from tool bar icon or desktop iconCant open it to run virus scan or anything

I would reinstall the program to get the icons back. It may be that the path of the icon is incorrect. If that doesnot fix the issue try these steps

First, please make sure that you have the latest firmware and drivers available for your CD/DVD-ROM drive. This can be done by visiting the CD/DVD-ROM manufacturers website.
Then, clear out your C:\WINDOWS\TEMP directory (this is a storage area where files are stored before they are installed). Delete everything in this file, and your problem may be solved completely.
If this does not work, you may also need to clear out your Internet cache (temporary Internet files):
(Internet Explorer)
1. Open Internet Explorer.
2. Click on Tools -> Internet Options.
3a. In IE6 - Click on the 'Delete Files...' button on the Genral Tab
3b. In IE7 - Click on the 'Delete' button under the Browsing History section of the General Tab.
(Mozilla Firefox)
1. Open Firefox.
2. Click on Tools -> Options
3. Click on the Advanced tab -> Network Tab.
4. Click on the 'Clear Now' button under the Cache section.

- Empty your recycle bin

- Run Scandisk
1. Click Start->Programs->Accessories->System Tools
2. Select Scandisk
3. Select your hard drive. If you have more than one, you should scan each drive individually.
4. Click Standard
5. Check Automatically fix errors.
6. Click Start

- Run Defrag
1. Click Start->Programs->Accessories->System Tools
2. Select Disk Defragmenter
3. Select the hard drive you wish to defrag and click ok.

I hope this answers your question.
Thank you for visiting FixYa for your solutions.

Window disappears..

It appears your orignal download was corrupt. I would suggest you go control panel and using add/remove programs, you uninstall or remove. I suggest a restart after this. Once it is gone, download the program again and reinstall. If the problem is still there, look for a different download site. I would also recommend you run a security scan soon, as the corruption may have given you some hidden virus or spyware. Good Luck!
