Mcafee Security Centre Is Prohibiting Upgrade Process


I have been trying to install my new windows 7 upgrade on my acer aspire 5332 laptop. It accepts the acer setup disc. When i try to continue with the windows disc, it tells me that the mcafee security centre is prohibiting the process. I have disabled the mcafee, with the same result. I have now uninstalled mcafee and checked the registry too. Mcafee is no longer showing on the computer. When i run the windows disc again, i still get the same message. Can you advise please?

Security Centre Service Cannot Be Started

I have tried going into 'safe mode' but get the same results. Have tried the liveone care scan, nothing found in the way of malware or spyware. Any other suggestions will be welcome. This is a new pc in march 2010 with intel core i5 750, gigabyte p55 ud6 m'board, 150 gb velociraptor hdd with back up 1. 5tb hdd. Suddenly while playing 'facebook' i see a red flag and find that my action centre is telling me that my security protection is off. Tried to start it but keep getting the same message.

Upgrade Error Due To Mcafee Firewall

I need some recommendations about how to upgrade my dell desktop running windows vista business when i keep getting an error that mcafee firewall plus is installed despite this program having been removed over 2 years ago?

Original dell system shipped with xp and mcafee pre-installed in 2006 however i upgraded to vista immediately through dells' upgrade program. Later after the my subscription to mcafee expired i removed the program (i thought) and replaced it first with norman and now norton internet security 2009.

After repeated system searches and use of the mcafee ' technical assistant there are no 'visible' folders or files associated with mcafee however i cannot run a simple upgrade to windows 7 upgrade because of this issue.

Upgrade Advisor - Uninstall Ati Control Centre

Un-installing ati control center and ati install manager disables my graphics card, i am attempting to upgrade from my current 64 bit windows vista home premium to windows 7 home premium and i am having some compatibility issues. The upgrade advisor is telling me to uninstall my ati control centre and ati install manager.

However, once i do so, this also uninstalls my ati drivers, which means i must use my built in chipset graphics card which unfortunately is too weak to process the new windows aero interface. Does this mean i will not be able to upgrade my computer?

Upgrade Adviser - Dell Webcam Centre Problem

I am having problems running two programs (dell webcam centre/fast action facial recognition and also kaspersky internet security 2009. Neither of which should not work according to the windows 7 upgrade adviser. I received my copy of windows 7 yesterday and have had a few problems with just 2 programs everything else works fine. The first is kaspersky internet security where the only the intenet security bit is working.

I have no fire wall so having to use windows and none of the other options available. Is there a way around this. And my other problem is dell webcam central and also fast action facial recognition where the drivers will not all get installed and will then stop one another working when originally they would work  together. It is an amazing problem but when they started advertising it they said that they had already worked out all software problems so anything could still be used with it.

Will I Have Compatibility Issue With Mcafee?

We just purchased w7 hp upgrade software. I have a current mcafee protection/subscription. When i install will i have compatibility issues with the w/defender disabling my firewall and auto activating? If i do should i contact mcafee or ms for solutions? I've had these issues with ms "updates", they are a real pain in the neck to deal with. Of course mcafee, wisely, will not say anything negative. I'm looking forward to upgrading and wish to avoid any sidestepping with potential issues.

Media Centre

Using windows 7 hp. I am trying to open the media centre to set up for tv etc; it will not open for me. I get a box up each time "you are currently logged on as a guest. Windows media center requires a non-guest account. If you need to change your user type, contact the owner of the system" of course i am the system administrator/owner. I cannot find a way to change to a user account? I have looked into the security setting to see who can do what to the system regarding permissions and owning the system.

Cannot See Switch In Network Centre

I'm trying to connect a switch in windows 7 however i can't see it in the network centre. When i connect the internet router directly to the pc, i get internet access however i can see 2 networks! I'm apparently connected to the home network and an unidentified network. When i then add in the switch, the network map brings up the yellow triangle/exclamation mark, the multiple networks icon is greyed out and the internet connection turns to the red cross.

Windows Security Versus Norton Security

I have just taken for granted that i need a separate security company, because every time i purchase a computer, "norton" came with the included software. My question is; is windows defender and ms security sufficient security for a home computer?

The avast! Antivirus program suddenly stopped working. I tried to kill the process with the task manager and pskill, but had no success as access was denied.

I didn't find any way to get rid of the avast.exe file or the entire program folder altogether. Tnx for any suggestions on how to kill or get rid of the avast application. Programs you are having problems with error messages recent changes you made to your computer what you have already tried to fix the problem.

Process Srrstr.dll

I have a problem with a rundll32.exe process srrstr.dll in task manager. From what i have found out this has to do with creating a restore point. This process will run forever until i stop it through task manager. I also have another problem that occurred around the same time. My external hard drive that i use as a backup is not showing my backups since this started. I believe that a backup might have been interrupted. Don't know if that could have caused all of this.

I had a screenshot but i cannot seem to paste it in here so i will type it out:

In task manager -> processes
"Image name" = rundll32.exe
"User name" = system
"Command line" = c:windowssystem32undll32.exe/d srrstr.dll, executescheduledsppcreation
"Description" = windows host process (rundll32)

I am running windows 7 pro 64 bit build 7600 v6. 1
Amd phenom ii 955 processor
Asus m4a785td-v evo mobo
4gb gskill ram
2 wd black 640gb hard drives & 1 external wd black 750gb hd as a backup

Raid 10 Array Process

I'm switching from xp to win 7 pro 64bit - i previously set raid 10 so have experience. This was done using f6 floppy on clean install xp pro 32bit with intel ich9r driver. I am going to do a clean install with win7 pro 64bit - i have read that in win 7 you don't need to use the same process but i am unclear what exactly occurs in the install process for win 7 - will win 7 simply recognize and install the correct drivers - or do i need to have the intel 64 bit matrix drivers ready on flash drive etc. Please confirm the process?

Ps this is hardware raid not software

Not Enough Storage To Process Command

I have major problem trying to install a new wlan pci card. When i first inserted it into the pc i figured the pnp would take care of everything but no so i installed it manually from the cd, this didn't work either so i tried to install it using a driver from the manufacturers website. The installation finishes and everything but windows still goes to look for drivers and when it doesn't find any i go to look in the device manager and i get the following error code:the drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28) (but they are)not enough storage is available to process this command.

To find a driver for this device, click update driver. I have about 2, 5gig ram free and about 590 gig of disk space free so that can't be it right?The things i have tried are:running the setup file as administrator, performing a disk cleanup, creating a new account with administrator acces, "telling" windows installer where to find the driver installer. Nothing works. Doe's anyone have any good ideas?

Bsod During Boot Process

I was playing an on-line game when the system locked up. The keyboard was unresponsive, no ctlr-alt-del or anything else seemed to have an effect, i power cycled and now the system cannot pass the boot process before bsoding. I get the windows saying starting windows and it just starts to draw the microsoft 4 color logo (about 3 to 5 pixels worth) when it bsods and reboots. Trying the repair mode it just bsods again but without rebooting. If i try the command line it stops when it gets to classpnp.sys then reboots.

I did a full memory test using memtest86, all 8g passed 3 iterations.

If i try the repair, it "loads windows files" and then bsods with a machine_check_exception with a  stop value of 0x0000009c (0x000000000000003, 0xfffff88002865b60, 0x00000000b220000a, 0x00000000002010a)

Settings.ini Is Being Used By Another Process

My gadgets aren't working, neither is firefox. I have a problem with my sidebar, as-well, as a lot of others have on this forum and a lot of others. Every time i start up my computer this message is shown. I tried a clean boot and that took care of the error message, but when i tried running the sidebar it popped up. Besides that my firefox, keeps claiming that another firefox is already running which, from my point of view, doesn't make any sense.

This seems to have started after i tried connecting windows media center to my xbox 360 and there was an error. In searching the internet, i have found that quite a few people have posted this kind of problem, several after a snafu in setting up their xbox 360 for media center, but there seem to be no answers to be found.

Process Identifier (pid) 4024

Upon boot up of my desktop computer an error message shows ' the desktop colour scheme ' has been changed to windows basic because of qttask.exe ie. Apple computer inc program. My computer has an intel processor with no apple programs! I have carried out windows explorer and control panel searches without success of finding such a program. It then follows to say that windows home premium colour scheme will return when the apple program has been uninstalled.

Any suggestions to stop this error message appearing everytime i boot up would be much appreciated and my computer running normally with the windows 7 home premium o. S installed. For information : my windows 7 o. S was a clean install and not a upgrade.

Computer Start Up Process Never Finishes

I have a 64 bit computer i recently updated from vista to windows 7. I did the compatibility search, and ever thing was supposedly ok to go. I have had only 1 problem- if i shut down my computer, when i turn it back on, i get all the way to the desktop, and get the "busy" signal. Forever. I can't click on anything. My only option is to pull the plug. The way i get my computer started is to start in safe mode, and then restart, then it starts just fine. Any suggestions?

Cannot End Process On Gaming Programs

I recently installed windows 7, and previously used windows xp. I play a game called asda story, currently floundering between beta and live. My problem is that when it bugs out and freezes, and i go to desktop to shut down the program, in windows xp i hit end process and it shut it down immediately. In windows 7 it says "cannot end process" and won't shut down the program. It won't shut it down from either programs or process tabs in the task manager. This has also happened occasionally in fallout 3 when that game freezes up. I bring up task manager and it won't let me shut down the game. No matter what the process is, if i hit "end process" it should end the process. Why doesn't this work in windows 7 sometimes?

How To Disable Process Wlcomm.exe?

I need to lighten the load off my lower end e5200 processor. Wlcomm.exe seems to use quite a bit of memory. It is my understanding wlcomm.exe is part of the "windows live contact". http://searchtasks. Answersthatwork.com/tasklist.php?File=wlcomm we do use "windows live mail". How can  prevent wlcomm.exe from starting up when i boot windows?I did uninstall windows live messenger since wlcomm.exe has something to do with the program. However, whenever i boot window's live mail, the process starts again.

Running Explorer As A Separate Process

Under windows xp we login to our workstations as a basic user and then launch a command prompt with administrator privileges using runas. This allows us to launch things like aduc or exchange system manager as our admin account.

Now i am in the process of creating an image and setting up security for windows 7. When attempting to do the same thing i get the message "windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item. ". The account that the cmd prompt is running as is an admini account that is in the local as well as domain admin groups. So i dont see that this could be a permissions issue.

Also we have set the registry key hkcusoftwaremicrosoftwindowscurrent versionexploreradvancedseperateprocess = 1.
