SecurityCenter Installation Error

As many have encountered, my installation is stuck with the following error message:

At 83 % of the installation it stopped:

Error Message: "Sorry, your McAfee software couldn't be installed. The following components failed to Install: SecurityCenter".

I tried everything from 'How to fix this' to updating my windows updates and turned off Windows Defender, but nothing works.

My OS is Windows 10 64 bit, 8GB RAM.

Please advise on my situation, thank you.

Re: SecurityCenter Installation Error


Could you try running the cleanup tool MCPR and downloading a fresh installer from your Online account?

You can grab the cleanup tool from here

Restart the PC when prompted and download the installer from your account online
