How can I get Mcafee to open?

                 When I tried to open the Mcafee LifeSafe program on my windows 10 pc earlier today, instead of the regular menu opening, a window opened stating "We're getting your app up and running(we'll launch your award winning anti virus protection shortly". Thinking it was an update, I left window open and waited. When I came back, the window was still open! There is no loading bar or progress report, so as far as I know its just sitting here "launching my award winning antivirus shortly"(If shortly is some indefinite time over an hour). I've tried restarting my pc multiple times, getting the same result. Please help!!!

Hello @TheOneLasagna

Regret the delay in getting back. Please confirm if you are still facing ths issue. A reboot should usually fix this problem but if you are still facing this problem, follow the steps in this article and it should resolve the issue.

You have to follow the steps given under How to resolve a damaged or corrupt file issue.
