McAfee VirusScan Plus installer problem

Hi all.
I have a computer with Windows Vista Home Premium (32b), with SP1.
It had Mcafee VirusScan Plus installed but it needed to renew the subscription.
I renewed it through my account and then downloaded the DMSetup.exe file.
When I tried to install it, it would show me a screen with the progress bar and then it went completely blank and made a sound like a browser refreshing automatically.
I tried to let it work for a while to see if it does something, but it just goes on forever...

I thought it could be caused by the already installed version of McAfee so I uninstalled it. So now I have a computer with no anti-virus protection and I can't install McAfee. I tried inserting this on the console in admin mode

regsvr32 jscript.dll
regsvr32 vbscript.dll

and also tried to download this: and it gives me an error (or at least I think it's an error) "2 not expected"

after all this McAfee still doesn't install.

Please help.

RE: McAfee VirusScan Plus installer problem

Solved! You can close this thread.
I tried everything, rebooting, etc. Than I just gave up and turned off the laptop.
After a while I turned the laptop back on and just tried it again just one more time to see if it works and it did!

security center won't install

i had security center for three years, and i liked it. Got amessage that i needed to reinstall so i deleted then attempted reinstall, program stopped at"checking compatibility". just sat there not doing much at all. i contacted McAfee about it, they sent me everywhere and emailed bunches of links, but nothing has worked, and worse, one of the McAfee techs said that i wasn't entitled to help because i didn't contact them within 30 days of renewal. Now i am paid up till 2010, so i think i'm entitled, anybody know how to fix this?, Btw, i used the mcpr program, but that din help either.:mad:
