Probably my last post till next week.
I noted that I could do a manual update today without difficulty. Noted that the previous virus definition directory was named 7510. A new one was created named 7514. I don't know if it is normal behavior to have both directories there.
As I went down the navigation menu, I noted the following:
Quick Clean creates a blank window in the McAfee GUI
File Lock does not generate anything
Security History does not generate anything
Security Report does not generate anything
About does not generate anything.
Except for Quick Clean (does it still not like Chrome...I am using Chrome at the moment) and file lock (which seems to be a group policy issue), do all the others depend on an external window to McAfee? Would there be an issue with flash player or something like that?
If anything weird happens to McAfee UI first thing I would check is Jscript and Internet Explorer. You can try Resetting IE and Re-installing MS Visual C++ 2010.
Check GUI if it functions normal.
I use chrome because IE looked unstable. Sure enough, it doesn't even show up in the uninstall programs list. I reset IE but to no avail.
Yes looks like I messed things up again. I updated JAVA to latest version.
IE still looked sluggish and always opens up with a message saying that some program has corrupted the search engine and that it is defaulting to bing.
I went to the Programs/Features to uninstall/reinstall IE8. When I clicked on it, it just disappeared. No messages. No nothing. Good thing I got chrome. Good thing the McAfee udpated (manually) tonight. Nothing going right on this machine.
McAfee on laptop is still doing updates, scans, and other basic things necessary for antivirus. Gui interfaces have not changed. I may just close this post, since it is running in a basic mode. I use Chrome, so I am not going to update IE just this moment. Takes too much time (slow DSL) and I do have a day job. Not sure what is going on.
