Error reinstalling after uninstallation.

I have read through numerous lengthy discussions and instructions so I am very frustrated right now. :'(

I have uninstalled McAfee because I wanted to change my firewall settings so I can use a program to file for my tax return.

I found the post below and followed the advices accordingly.

Then I followed this next guide to uninstall and reinstall McAfee.

Then I downloaded the DMSetup to reinstall my McAfee software from the link below.

When I ran DMSetup, they asked for my account and password. When I got in, it let me choose between "Complete(Recommended)" and "Custom". I chose "Complete(Recommended)". When I pressed the "Next" button to proceed it posted...


An unexpected error has occured. The login process has experienced and unexpected server access error. Please try again.

What do I do? Can anyone please help me. I am so frustrated right now and I am considering switching to a new antivirus software if I can't resolved this problem. >_<

I feel so insecure and unprotected right now. I don't want my new laptop infected. =(

Please help. I would really appreciate it. Thanks. ^_^
