Windows 7: McAfee Antivirus Plus install kind of hangs

McAfee Antivirus Plus install kind of hangs

I just got McAfee Antivirus Plus. I would have posted in the McAfee Community, but whatever I try, it says me that my password is not strong(even something like kjbscbnwaefnuiiascnnigioo1289y92uhfuiwga).
I wasn't able to access McAfee and Microsoft website. I could access others. So I started Windows with Safe Mode with Networking. Then I was able. I downloaded the file and again went to Normal mode.
I run the PreInstall application. After I stared the setup, it downloaded a file(approx 6MB) and then stopped. I waited several hours, still no use.
I again went to Safe Mode with Networking. This time it worked. It downloaded files(approx 130MB). Then, the install started and its doesn't move from the halfway.

Very few will use McAfee just because of all the problems it causes.
