Cannot Setup Online Backup iOn Windows 7 (64 bit)

I was running online backup on Windows Vista Home Edition.  I installed Windows 7 Professional.  Before I installed Win7, I backed up mu data using Online Backup. I reinstalled McAfee Total Protection and when I click on Online Backup, nothing happens!  I need to get this working in order to get my data back.  Any ideas?

Hello ddefillipo ,

Could you please let us know if you backed up your data using Mcafee online backup the individual/standalone program (or) the one that came along your Total protection or Internet security suite ?

I am using the On-line backup in Total Protection (Mozy).  I am running Windows 7 Professional 64 bit.

I called support and a technician helped me.

The link Online Backup in the Data Protection and Backup drop-down does not work.  Your technician had me click on "C:\Program Files (x86)\McAfee Online Backup\MOBKconf.exe"to start the application.  I was able to set up backup and restore my files.  I now have a shortcut on my desktop that directly runs MOBKconf.exe.

Will this issue be fixed in a future release?

I have exactly the same problem than ddefillipo. Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bits.

I already uninstall, use ccleanner, aceutilities, install again, technician do not fixed.

When I run C:\Program Files (x86)\McAfee Online Backup\MOBKconf.exe ask me for a licence key and email adresses.

Please Mcafee fix soon.
