McAfee icon

The McAfee icon at the bottom of my toolbar has an X on it. When scanned, it is able to "FIX" some problems but unable to fix others. Why is it not able to fix the other problems?

I am disappointed in this program if it is unable to resolve the problems.

RE: McAfee icon

Please clarify,
Can you open the McAfee and let me know what error you get in the Right hand panel?
What type of internet connection you have (DSL, Cable….)?
Post the DAT version and Engine version of McAfee Virus scan (Open Security center-click on about in the Right hand bottom panel-check the Build version and DAT version for McAfee Virus scan)?Did you receive any kind of alert/advertisements or pop-ups in the computer?

Dear Bala,

Thank you for your response but it appears it corrected itself---finally. But I just don't understand when I have the McAfee program to take care of such technology headaches. The thing is that it will occur again because it does that every so often.
