You may be better posting on the McAfee forum where there are more users than on this forum.

Personally I would uninstall BT/McAfee. It can cause problems on some computers and is a resource hog. It always seems to be one update away from another problem. There are far better free antivirus programs available such as Avast Free and AVG Free.

If you do want to uninstall BT/McAfee use this guide and make sure you use the BT/McAfee removal tool after you have restarted your computer.

If you do want to re use BT/McAfee, uninstall it using this guide along with the BT/McAfee removal tool after a restart and then reinstall. This might resolve your problem.

McAffee is **bleep**, don’t even bother using it.

You’re better off using Avast or kaspersky or Avira. Use them in conjunction with malwarebytes and you’ll be all set. They all offer great free software, but if you’re willing to pay you can get some very good antivirus/anti malware. Just in case anyone else is wondering about McAffee.
