I can't open McAfee and have it do anything for me because I continually get the same message, "An update is being installed".
What do I have to do to make McAffe just work like it's supposed to and quit dispalying this message?
see also the thread "stuck on update is being installed" under "General discussion" for potential workaround.
There are several other threads of the same problem. Hopefully there will be a fix soon. It has been going on for months.
Also the New installer is slated to release any day now, the Version/Build 15.1r2. The New User interface should be (Blue) also. As far as my knowledge this build is functioning just fine. I have been running 15.1.156 since last October, and have not experienced anything untoward.
If this is Windows 10, turn off Fast Startup as it prevents a clean restart.

Or if it's Windows 8 here: Fast Startup - Turn On or Off in Windows 8
Or Windows 7:
Disable through the Control Panel
**Also check that your system clock is accurate for time, day and date.
