Hello and welcome friend, “.exe” files are execution files which adorn an important role in any software, and “firetray.exe” is related to McAfee Host Intrusion Prevention software which is developed by Windows. You are greeted by this error when you open or close McAfee HIP. This error can occur if your “.exe” file gets infected by Trojan, suspicious malware or any other virus. Hence, it is important to solve this issue. You can do this by:

One important point that you should register in mind is that you should never attempt to download these type of files from unofficial websites as they are not verified from their respective developers, and you may unintentionally invite virus within your computer.

Option no-1: Remove and again install McAfee HIP

  • Enter Control Panel and then click “Uninstall a Program.”
  • The list of all software installed in your PC will appear and select McAfee HIP. Right-click on it and select “Uninstall.”
  • After the removal is completed, restart your system PC and try installing it again from a disc or their website.

Option no-2: Execute an Anti-virus scan from reliable software:

  • You must restart your computer for this option. While it restarts, choose the “Safe mode with networking” option.
  • Open your reliable anti-virus software and select “Full System Scan.”
  • Remove the virus detected files and restart your PC again.

Thank you.

If you are experiencing a problem with your McAfee software, check first your subscription if it is still valid. You usually get problems with your antivirus or internet security when your subscription is expired. If you no longer have a valid subscription or it is already expired, renewing your subscription should fix the problem.

But if your subscription is still active or valid, try to uninstall and reinstall the program. Download the free version of Revo Uninstaller and install it. Once installed, start Revo Uninstaller then select your McAfee antivirus among the applications and click “Uninstall”. Follow the normal uninstall process. When uninstall is complete, click “Scan” to scan your computer for any leftover files and delete everything it finds.

This removes everything the program created on your computer. When it is finished, close Revo Uninstaller then install your McAfee antivirus back. See if this works.
