Despite multiple reloads of the McAfee program, there is a defect in the security center pop-up screen. I open security center and get the black rectangular box with McAfee and four icons. The next screen does not fully load and only shows vestiges of irrelevant partial images of a navigation error. Since there are no options on that screen to select, I cannot act on any of the items McAfee says it has found. Any ideas?
McAfee relies on an up to date Internet Explorer with settings at default, whether or not its the default browser.
The above symptoms were caused by various beta versions of IE8 so if you have them please uninstall, then reload the final version from Microsoft.
It also could be IE settings so try the following: (assuming IE8, if not then it's time you upgraded)
Go to IE Tools/Internet Options/Advanced and click the Reset button.
OK any prompts that appear and then click Apply and OK.
Close and reopen IE and go to Tools/Manage Add-ons and re-enable the add-ons.
See if that helps.Message was edited by: Ex_Brit on 11/8/09 5:16 PM
I have the exact same thing, the Security Center will not open and also the 'Help' button doesn't work, but I repeatedly get warnings that my computer is unprotected.
I do however use mozilla firefox... Any ideas?
I suggest you both contact Technical Support Chat. They can go into the machines toi check what's wrong and escalate the issue if necessary.
Alter the country if necessary near the top right.Message was edited by: Ex_Brit on 11/9/09 4:24 AM
