I have McAfee. That problem has been resolved. It seems there was a burp in my connection as it was downloading an update so it didn't install properly. I downloaded the update and that is fine now.
I always disable services though .. have for years for this game. Unless I had a stupid moment and disabled something that I shouldn't have?
Bill, do you think I should still run malware, tho McAfee does take care of that. I'm running a full scan now.
Thank you for helping.
