I have reviewed your computer remote session which was taken by one of the McAfee tech,
Try the below steps and update me the outcome
1.In Internet Explorer, click Tools, and then click Internet Options.
2.Click the Security tab, click Default Level, and then click OK
Close and open the Internet Explorer
Click on help at the top of the Internet Explorer
Click on About Internet explorer and check you that red X, if not check the McAfee status
If issue persists, I need to know some entries in the Registry location
Follow the below link to know how to backup the registry
After backup the registry,
Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK
navigate to the below location and let me know you are seeing any sub registry keys under Extension & MIME (Please refer the screen shot attached)
Note : The screen Shot attached doesn’t have any sub registry keys for Extension & MIME
Please be cautious doing the above because if you modify any keys in the registry will lead to computer damage. If you are not comfortable doing the above let me know
Thanks, but nothing works. Security has been at default level, when I click on any red Xs, nothing happens, a McAfee link appears, with no subcategories under Registry entries:
HKLM\ Softwear\Microsoft\Interne Explorer\Plugins\Extension and/or MIME.
I spent most of the day researching Microsoft Communities for answers to the red X issue which may be at the root of my "no button in McAfee" issue, but all the KB articles were useless to me. No button or actual tiles (which I believe are supposed to appear (I have the large horizontal white space with Home, Navigation, and Help in upper right corner and various subcatagories scattered across the screen -- no tiling or user access. This may be an image problem, but my drivers are current. Sigh, sigh. Driving me to drink.
If I come up with any solution myself (besides cancelling McAfee) will post it.Message was edited by: torchwood on 1/11/13 1:49:59 PM CST
I found some in the below link, you can have a try on it and update me the outcome
Still trying. Used your link, karthiks -- found and downloaded their 7-ZIP -- found it was an obnoxious plug-in to create and handle archived files. I don't have any, so went to uninstall. Ended up with ghastly problems worse than original. Long story short: Registry had to be reinstalled from Jan 6 backup. Which gave me an interesting situation: Until I do the necessary reboot, have the old preferred MUI up, and can actually use it!
Thanks for your good intentions, though.
I said I would come back -- my problem seems SOLVED, but don't know why, so not much help to Community. Just fyi: did an overwrite of System State from Jan 6, 2013 backup, also overwrote all McAfee files/folders. Allowed MAVP to update -- saw good old interface! And, AFTER update reboot, interface still there. Don't know why or who, but THANK YOU!! Can go back to my life now.Message was edited by: torchwood on 1/13/13 11:13:21 AM CST
Here we go again. Today's update (01-16-13) forced a reboot; no UI again; new large white screen with no buttons or images, no tiling. Unusable. Presume AV still useful, but really, really gross interface.
So many problems with "fixes" which impacted other areas of my OS that I am just sending a formal complaint to you, as I am NOT OK.Message was edited by: torchwood on 1/17/13 2:58:58 PM CST
