I've had an issue lately with Total Protection not updating. A few days ago, when I went to update (I have automatic updates turned off), the "Checking for updates" progress bar is stuck at 25%.
Not even rebooting my computer fixed the issue. Both McAfee and Windows keep bugging me to update Total Protection when I literally can't.
Is there anything I can do to fix this? Note I am on Win10.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I tried looking around, but I failed to find such. Then again I'm not very good at finding things like that.
In any case, I will be doing that later. Thank you for the advice, I'll update this post when I get around to doing so.
Update: so my procrastination on reinstalling actually paid off. The issue just somehow fixed itself. I certainly can't complain, as I was not looking forward to the process of the uninstall and reinstall.
Regardless, I still want to thank you for the very quick reply and answer, as I'm certain your answer would have worked.
I uninstalled, rebooted, and reinstalled and it seemed the problem was fixed. A day later it is again stuck at updating. What kind of garbage is this. I will definitely not renew my subscription. I do not have time to deal with this. That is why I paid for a subscription!
