McAfee Suite Problem following IE7

  SURVEY 09:33 15 Jan 07

A friend of mine has asked me to help her with her Mcafee installation. She has a section on this I believe entitled Privacy and since upgrading to IE7 she has had a message pop up on start-up informing her that this section is not working properly.

I have rolled back her computer to IE6 but the message now persists. Does the Mcafee disc include a repair option? Can one remove and reinstall just that part of the Mcafee suite?

Anyone else experienced this problem?

Have you tried installing McAfee again after you have IE7 already installed ?
Think i would run Ccleaner after install to get rid of all the bits,then install again

mymate - yes a comlpete reinstall would no doubt be the answer. However I did just wonder that as the problem is only with a single component whether there was a simpler solution.

I am sure that this problem must have arisen with others installing IE7. The McAfee website mentions other problems with IE7 but not this specific one.

Just been to see my friend and of course the start-up message is not now appearing. Her McAfee scren infoms me that all McAfee services including the Privacy Service are protecting her computer with no references to errors.

I have shut down and restarted her computer several times this morning without the fault appearing again. No doubt now that I have left her, it will reappear!!

This is obviously an intermittent fault - always difficult to trace.

It could be that the latest Mcafee updates have corrected a previous problem.

johnem - that is exactly what I told my friend and just hope that is the case!
