Hi

The problem you are facing is that your antivirus is not working properly due to the factor that you have updated your software and after updating your software it is not working properly. The reason is that when you updated the software there are some files which has missed or may be corrupted or has not updated will therefore you encountered this problem and if you want to get rid of the problem then do the following instruction:

You have to uninstall the software and then again install the software it will start working and would not update the software otherwise you will again get this problem and if you want to update the software then first download the update version of the software and then install that software instead of first installing and then updating so this is the only best possible solution which I have so done this and it will work on your system and you will get rid of the problem.

The problem is with your McAfee main exe (executable file) It throws an exception to the main thread. Just do one thing download McAfee from their official website:

Now try opening it , it will say you already have McAfee now click on repair. It takes a while then after that do a quick system restart. And now you see that error message vanishes . 

The problem with uninstalling and installing it is that you have to start everything from beginning like licensing issues and all. So it's better to keep that problem making McAfee aside download another setup and repair it.  Let it find and repair only the BAD files why should we remove it completely with a fresh one , keep that in mind 

Hope it solves your problem.

Amazing!

I didn't know there such way of getting rid of this popping message on my massacre. It was nice having registered online at this site.

Very practical way of getting information about technical support like these.

Thank you again Lesten.
