Re: Mcaffe reinstall javascript error

Make sure your system is totally up to date, especially your Internet Explorer, whether or not you use it, and make sure also that all it's (& other browsers of course) add-ons are the latest version.

Make sure all remnants of the old software are gone from Control Panel > Programs > Uninstall a Program

Run the MCPR cleanup tool and reboot.

Run the VCFix tool

Unpack that zip and use the appropriate one for your system, x86 for 32-bit, x64 for 64-bit systems.   If in doubt what you are right-click Computer on your desktop or in your Start Menu and select Properties.

Run the  McPreinstall tool

Go to your account and try downloading again.

If you have more problems I need to know more information, what operating system and service pack is this and what version of Internet Explorer is installed, whether or not you use it as your default browser?
