hi guys,i have a question, i need your help

I have an HP Pavilion PC with a 64 bit Windows Vista system. Owing to the nature of my PC usage I MUST run with ALL firewalls down and ALL popups allowed.


In addition I MUST use Adobe addon like Flash and Reader, AIR and Shockwave as well as Action X. I MUST also use FireFox browsers for these activities.


What I want to know is this- why does McAfee keep allowing my FireFox browsers to crash- constantly? No matter how often I upgrade FF McAfee ALWAYS


screws it up and crashes! As you may already know FireFox is staffed by a bunch of lunatics w/o intelligence so do NOT suggest asking them! I have asked and


asked and asked again to no avail dammit! HP will not help me. FF won't or can't help me. McAfee constantly uninstalls/reinstalls itself and always fouls up


something every single day! I have tried System Restore on the average of 25 times an hour and NOTHING works!! Is there anyone out there who knows what the Hell


is wrong with this piece of crap? Wish I could afford a Windows 7 upgrade but I am unemployed and have to depend on surveys, web ad surfing, contests, etc. just to make a little money!


PLEASE HELP out a poor slob nobody cares about? Please? Thanks I hope and sayonara for now- K&K- Brookhaven PA- USA

The software is no longer supported on Windows Vista.  But you could try running the Virtual Technician to see if it helps:  http://mvt.mcafee.com/ - if not then uninstall the software and download a free one that is compatible.  (Google search)
