What does "nuke and fresh install" mean, please?
Uninstall via windows and then after a reboot use the MCPR removal tool reboot and run Pre-install tool then reinstall product from your account. takes around 15 mins depending on download speed.
If you have a problem installing onto Windows, try using the Pre-Install Tool. This tool prepares your computer for installation:
Thank you for the information and quick response.
My Action Center is flagging for that, too. This is all way too weird!
Only at boot plus 90 secs and fine before 5 mins or longer

Appreciate the follow up Selvan.
Thank you, Selvan, for this article. I don't remember installing Windows Security Suite any time recently, but whatever did this sure screwed up a lot of settings! In Services, in MVT, in the Action Center.....
Do I assume, then, that we (who have been doing it) should continue manually starting the McAfee Firewall, or are things fine as they are?
Thank you again; your information is always appreciated.
WSS or Windows security suite is another name for all Mcafee windows suites. just the way they talk ie Livesafe etc. From that FAQ I gather McAfee starts the firewall automatically as required though Selvan will confirm.
