Jump to solution

I'm having a problem for several days now. When I try to run the program it's disappear in a flash. It's not in a toolbar either.

Currently I run Window 8.1

I have already tried to reinstall it.Still not helping.

Any help?

Moved to Consumer > General as a better spot for it.

Make sure 8.1 is totally up to date, including App Updates (accessed through Store > Settings)

Make sure you have no other security software active.

Run the Virtual Technician to see if it finds and fixes problems: http://mvt.mcafee.com/

If that doesn't help try uninstalling via Control Panel > Programs and Features, then running the MCPR cleanup tool, reboot and reinstall from your online account.
