Or download a free antivirus solution, like AVG, and an anti-apyware program like Spybot or Ad-Aware or NoAdware. Or Windows Defender.

That pop up is actually an update for your mcafee you can get rid of the popup by disabling auto upgrade detection or on upgrade center or turn off popup from your browser. by blocking pop-up window. go to preferences of you browser and disable pop-up windows.

I just want my money back. Because it asks me to uninstall a program I want to keep, Mcafee


Since McAfee is asking you to uninstall it, I am sure the program would have come in the spyware/adware list. They may have analysed that the software might create problems in your computer.

Do this.

install Microsoft virtual pc 2007, install xp on a virtual machine using this software.
Log into the virutal machin win xp , and instlal your software. If you connect to internet using that software, you can also install the internet device drivers.

YOu happy, Mcafee happy! atlast your systemis safe.

Dear rosemarycg ,

There can be several causes to your problem.

1. Captured cookies

Every time you install an application on your computer, it is communicating with a remote center, in your case with McAfee Security Center. In order to be able to do so, it installs a small widget on your computer, to identify your settings and login information by the remote server. It is possible that somebody hacked into your computer while somehow your protection was down, and made a copy of the cookies. As a matter of fact it is possible that the intruder got acces to your registration data with Mc Afee and it is using illegaly your personal keycode.

Suggestion: - write or call McAfee and explain them all the situation and ask for a new keycode.

2. Expired licence

Usually the licence for anti-virus or other software applications, provided together with an electronic equipment, have a promo quality first of all. As a matter of fact, the duration of a licence is for a limited period of time.

Suggestion: - check if there exists any data related to licence expiration date

3. Limited number of install attempts

Some software providers are using the system of limited number of installs, especially if the software is acquired as a promo package with an IT&C equipment.

Suggestion: - check when you install the software if in the agreement is specified something about limited number of install attempts

I hope some of the info I provided may be useful to you. If you have any questions, please dont hesitate to contact me.

How do I get this this message off of my desktop screen. warning! spyware detected on your computer.


You are infected. This is spyware of the worse sort.

What ever you do don't click on the link provided.

1. download adware (free version0, spybot (free version) and CCleaner (also free)

2. don't install yet - re-boot to safe mode. Then install these three.
a. run adware first - keep running till it comes up clean
b. then run spybot - keep running till it comes up clean
c. then run ccleaner - 1st Cleaner till it is clean (run over and over till it does not find any more) - then run its Registry Cleaner - and fix DO NOT BACKUP - run till it finds no more problems.

3. Click on 'my computer' - go to "program files" - list in Date Modified - anything that YOU DID NOT install in the past few days DELELTE the folder.

4. Run CCleaner again (as in step 2c).

Reboot.

When in windows click on Help and Support - Restore computer to earlier time - at least two days before you think this screen 1st came to you.

When done, it should be gone and cleaned.

you should have ordered McAfee for that... It's protects you from everything... If not backup your files or write them on a CD/DVD. Then reinstall your computer and you'll have a clean computer then install all softwares that you need and your anti-virus, anti-popups and firewalls.

goodluck.

My computer went back to older clock date as 1610


try starting your computer in safe mode and see if you can do anything productive there, like scanning for viruses or spyware. also check if you can do the following:
CTRL+ALT+DEL (open task manager)
goto Start>Run>Regedit (open registry editor)
goto Start>Control Panel>Display>Properties (change display settings)
right click on clock at tray and change the current time to correct settings

if you cannot do any of these activities, then your computer may probably been compromised by a virus or malware.
