I've been happily using McAfee for at least 8 yrs -- no problem installing-- runs fine.
I have a new McAfee Anti Virus Plus 2010 ("protects up to 3 PC's"), and tried to install it 4 different times. It looked for old programs, cleared them out, and then installed itself-- but.....Each time the install finished it came up as "Failed". I downloaded and ran the suggested McAfee utility (from their website) and it cleared my IP stack and DNS cache ("to resolve issues which may be caused by malicious software or incorrect configuration") Everything was cleared-- I tried to reinstall McAfee and again, got the "Failed" messages.
So I went back to my McAfeee 2009 -- it installed just FINE and is running just FINE.
Why can't I install McAfee 2010???
