As you will have gathered I not only don't investigate how to mend something if its not broken I also just go on using the broken thing till I can't. So I won't read it all (the content of the link that is) but it looks like just the kind of thing I would desperately need and won't be able to find when I'm panicking because my PC is not working. So I have printed it and put it in my special file with:

I'm not Moldyjacket but as I have this issue I thought I would let you know.
On The McAfee Updates box it said Update Current. Which was no surprise as it is set to update itself automatically.
Anyway I selected check for updates and I got a message saying "You are set to update automatically so there was no need for you to do anything" but after about 20 seconds this dissapeared and another message said something like your McAfee needs updating please select close so this can be done. This was a surprise as it contradicted itself.
I selected close and it appeared to be updating and took I would say less than 2 minute's to return to normal.
I then tried doing a custom scan via the McAfee front page menue and it still gives the same "an error has occured" message on my XP computer
The scan I requested was just the 300 files on my desktop.
If I right click on my desktop in windows explorer and select McAfee scan it works fine with no errors.
Maybe the change you made has not got to me yet as I get my updates via BT.comMessage was edited by: dmurphy on 09/07/14 06:27:25 CDT
I am investigating this issue and was able to get users complaining about this in the past few days. If required I can offer you logs collected from one such machine having this issue.
I just got an automatic update for McAfee and for me the problem has been corrected ie I no longer get the message "An Error Has Occurred". So congratulations to whoever sorted it and thanks.
Now that there has been some progress, time for a little on topic humor (you have to give me credit in resisting this earlier): Sorry there are minors reading these threads and his language is not acceptable to this Forum's terms of service. Moderator Peacekeeper
For those who haven’t seen it previously, yes…that really is John McAfee.Message was edited by: Peacekeeper on 25/07/14 6:58:17 PM
Didn’t cross my mind (much as when Peter jumped on me) since YouTube doesn’t restrict it and there is McAfee Parental Controls. Is it a violation for anyone to search YouTube “How To Uninstall McAfee Antivirus” by John McAfee?
John McAfee has had no connection with McAfee for years and his irrational rants are not publishable for the most part, at least not here.
Apart from that particular one being totally incorrect and misleading people.Message was edited by: Ex_Brit on 25/07/14 5:38:34 EDT AM
