Grey Box when opening McAffee

First ever post and a problem (although I have been running McAffee for years) ....... (this box is on Vista in case it makes any difference)

When I try to open any McAffee application I receive a blank grey box in the middle of the screen.

Updates are running continually as the screen dump shows but are saying 100% complete downloaded.

Tried Virtual Technician and received the response shown on the second screen dump.

Ran a full scan (can access off RH mouse button) and nothing detected.

Any ideas?

Re: Grey Box when opening McAffee

Only 3 cases 2 are in installing Mcafee so. best to call support and let them sort it out. I would assume you need to reinstall the product as something could have been corrupted.

uninstall/ reinstall


and use the mcpreinstall tool here then reinstall Mcafee
