Mcafee messing up

Hi, My Mcafee is messing up because of IE9, any known fix other than removing it or changing browser? I have Chrome but I use IE9 for other things.

If you know a fix please note it

Thanks

Mcafee user interface has designed using the scripting languages, if there is any problem with scirpt files, or script errors .. It will show blank page. you will get the blank page. so times running the IE fix . will fix the problem... Best to Remove the BETA version of IE>

I did not know that McAfee could be that easily compromised.

Hi there

Mcafee -- time for R.I.P.

Just get rid of it and install MSE instead -- ZERO cost, small, runs unobtrusively, updated very frequently and takes almost ZERO resources.

For a home user this is by far THE BEST BANG FOR BUCK. (COSTS NOTHING --IT'S FREE AND WORKS FINE).

Like all AV software if you DO get notification that your system has been infected I would always recommend a complete OS re-install or at least restore a CLEAN image.

As I keep saying on these Forums the time - especially for home users -- for PAID FOR AV software is OVER --DEAD --FINISHED.

None of these products designed for NON CORPORATE USE work any better than the FREE MSE.

OK you might get Virus A is picked up by product B and not product C or VIRUS B is picked up by product C and not product B but these days all this stuff will get picked up within hours by MSE if it is perceived to be a real threat.

There is no such thing as 100% protection in any case unless you leave your computer TOTALLY SWITCHED OFF.

Just surf safely and if you DO get a virus take appropriate action --restore a CLEAN image or re-install the OS.

Cheers
jimbo

Thanks, I would agree with this but if you have paid for a subscription you would like it to work. I understand its IE9 but I want to keep it insted of IE8 which sucks.

Better idea would be to fix McAfee to work with the beta of IE9. Or do they plan on waiting until it is released, and then hoping that it will work properly?

My Dad did the same thing with McAfee and I ended up finding over 50 pieces of Malware on his computer which McAfee had let in and left undetected. That's a very high price to pay to keep McAfee.
