McAfee Virtual Technician Error 1316

If anyone could offer help I would appreciate it.

Everytime I try to down load the VT, it stops and gives me Error 1316.

I am trying to Fix something my Security Center needs to be Fixed, but it cannot do it on its own.

The error says:

"Error 1316. A network error occoured while attempting to read the file"

Then lists the file.

Again, thanks in advance.



Running Window Home Vista and IE 8

Hi cpmondello,

It seems that you have old McAfee Virtual Technician installed on your computer. Please un-install the old one from control panel>>programs and features and install the new one from McAfee website. This will resolve the issue.
