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.

Compatibility Error - Mcafee Personal Firewall Plus

Trying to upgrade from vista to 7. Getting compatibility error from mcafee personal firewall plus. I don't have this program anymore, but it is showing up in services. How can i get the upgrade to work? Ideas:i have eliminated all the mcafee folders and registry items that i could find. In services it lists the path where the service is, but the mcafee folder listed there is not on my computer. I have tried using the mcafee uninstall tool, no success.

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?

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.

Firewall And Sharing

I have a program that is unable to work while windows 7 firewall is enabled. I have tried restoring the firewall to default and then repeatably allowing the program access. I have tried the more advanced options and they still do not work. I have resorted to installing a third party software firewall and behold i have found out i cannot disable windows 7 firewall and disable network sharing and file sharing. This is super poor design. I do not want networking sharing or file sharing on at all. What am i supposed to do in this situation?

Cannot Enable Win 7 Firewall

I recently purchased a new hp laptop with windows 7 home premium. However, i cannot activate my firewall. When i go into my firewall settings from the control panel, it doesn't even allow me to click the 'turn windows firewall on or off' option to the left. Now, it stated in my firewall settings that "these settings are being managed by vendor application norton firewall provider".

So i thought perhaps my norton firewall was interfering with it, so i turned off its smart firewall. But i still can't turn on my windows firewall. In fact, i cannot click most of the options in my firewall settings at all (turn firewall on/off, restore defaults, change settings etc). The only thing i can click is the advanced settings and troubleshoot.

Firewall Blocks Scanner

Spend several minutes with brother (model mfc-490cw). It's a 3 in 1. It is set perfectly. My computer is shown on the list were to send the scan to, but the connection doesn't go through. Able to scan from my computer to printer. If i disabled firewall, works. Try to add brother programs, don't find the right to add obviously (and the tech either). Was working just fine with vista! For now, only have config. Problems with windows 7. I don't think that removing my firewalls is the right answer.

Firewall Access - Bittorrent

On my computer i have bittorrent and for the longest time it was working perfectly fine. I was able to download torrents quickly and easily but recently i haven't been able to download any at all. I get this message "error opening windows firewall: 0x80070005 access is denied". I never got it before this just randomly started happening. I am not the greatest with computers so i was wondering if anyone could provide a step by step process to solving this problem.

Some information that may be important: bittorrent is installed on my laptop and i use a wireless connection to the internet.

Firewall Blocking File Sharing

Came into the office today (two computers on the network) and one of the computers could not see the other on the network (it was not a problem the other way around). I went through some troubleshooting, and figured out it was the firewall on the one computer blocking access. The firewall is controlled by macafee virus protection. So, i turned off the firewall, and bingo, i can now see each computer from both directions. The problem is now i don't have any firewall protection. Any reason the settings on the firewall would have been different today than they were yesterday, and how do i turn the firewall back on while allowing the file sharing to continue on as before over the network?

Win 7 Freezes Due To Nvidia

Running windows 7 64-bit home premium, after upgrade from vista 64-bit. (The upgrade was from the manufacturer, asus. )Nvidia graphics card geforce gt 220, driver version 196. 21. The system has started crashing frequently. It freezes. We cannot connect this with any particular application or activity. Lso, a flag icon is now appearing in the system tray. When i mouse over it, i see "solve pc issues:  4 messages". I clicked it and it listed the 4 messages, one of which was, "address a problem with nvidia graphics driver. " 

So i click this and i see a window in which it says, "opening solution . "  This lasts for a while but eventually it says, "this solution could not be downloaded. "  I am on the internet so there shouldn't be a problem with downloading anything. Anyway, on the same window i see where i can click, "view all problems this applies to. "  So i click that, and i see a list of some, but not nearly all, of our recent crashes. So there is some connection between nvidia and our crashes, but i can't get any further with this. Do you know what is going on?

Random Bsod Crashes Due To Driver_power_state_failure

Random bsod crashes due to driver_power_state_failure when pc left alone or in sleep. I have a dell studio xps8000, core i7-860, 8gb ram, nvidia gt220, win7 home premium 64-bit oem which, more or less since new, randomly crashes about once a week if i leave it alone and powered up for several hours or put in standby first. When this happens the pc is either fully shut down (& i then boot selecting 'boot windows normally' option) or has rebooted to login screen automatically.

According to recovery boot it is a bsod, and each minidump file looks like nearly identical to this, parameter 1 always 0x00000003:

A Program Or Firewall Is Not Compatible With This Version Of Windows

I am having a reoccurring windows security alert and  issue with my windows 7 home premium edition.
I have a dell studio1737 laptop. I get a windows security alert warning stating "a program or firewall is not compatible with this version of windows"

Name: microsoft console based script host
Publisher: microsoft corp
Path: c:windowssystem32cscript.exe

I also run norton internet security on my laptop. I am also quite careful about my online activities so i am pretty confident it is not a malware issue. But i could also be wrong.
I have contacted norton support and after removing and reinstalling norton is 2010 a couple of times. They advised me to contact microsoft support for assistance because they could not rectify the issue i am having.

Dell support have not been much help either (nothing new there). I have searched extensively for a solution and an answer but i have unfortunately not found anything that has helped me. Can anybody here help me with this issue. Because i am not filled with confidence at the moment about my laptops security? Also if anybody could give me any information about what cscript.exe is and why it is causing these problems.

Backup Fails Due To Corrupt C: Drive

Recently backup failed claiming a corrupted c: drive prevented some user files from being copied. On startup disc check is run automatically and reports a fault due to recently installed/upgraded software application and states that the solution is to restore to an earlier point. This fails on a series of restore points citing corrupt c: as the problem. (Some loop huh!)Regcure has been run and sped things up (a lot!) But not resolved the issue.

Windows 7 family premium is being run as an upgrade from the originally installed vista. Ny ideas please? I really don't want to reboot and start again if i can help it, especially as its an upgrade not original installation. (Most of me wants to go back to xp if i must stay on windows!).

Unable To Install Programs Due To Not Being Computer Administrator

Why am i unable to install programs due to 'not being the computer administrator' when i am the administrator? The last couple of times i have tried to install programs, such as adobe reader, a message comes up saying i do not have permission to install and must re-try when logged on as the administrator. But i have only the one user account on the computer and it says i am the administrator. I have tried granting permission to my user account (the same one is listed separately, once as administrator and again as what i have called it) to act as administrator but it said i am not allowed to do this.

Disable Windows Firewall " Stealth Mode "

Is there any way to disable "stealth mode" on the windows 7 firewall? I want windows to send icmp unreachable packets. According to this technet article, stealth mode is enabled by default, but there is no information on how to disable it. It was possible to control this on xp. Allow meto pre-answer the obvious questions about my question.

(1) i've already googled it. I found other people asking the same question, but no answers.
(2) i really do want to disable stealth mode. With all due respect, i'm not asking for advice or opinions on the wisdom of my choice.

Problem: Delay On Boot Due To Drivers Files: Ndproxy.sys, Srv.sys, And Vga.sys

Recently installed a fresh copy of windows 7 x86 and x64 in separate instances to see if the problem of a two minute period between the "windows is starting" screen and the desktop. Neither had a visible impact. I looked around online and found how to create a boot log. The following are the drivers/services that could not be installed during my startup:

4 instances of ndproxy. Svs
1 instance of vga.sys (hadn't installed video card driver yet)
1 instance of srv.sys

After installing the necessary drivers and with no alert from the device manager, the boot time is still roughly 2 minutes. Right now i am at a loss on what to do. For reference my avg startup time in xp was around 10 seconds from the windows logo. Any help would greatly be appreciated.

Activation Error Upgrade

I bought and started using windows 7 right after it came out and used it for about two months during which time the product key worked perfectly. I decided to try out ubuntu 9. 10 and did a clean install of ubuntu over win7. I decided to move back to win7 recently and after the install my product key is no longer being accepted saying that it can only be used for an upgrade, and everywhere else i have read that you must have either vista or xp on a separate partition  for this to work. However, installing vista or xp on my computer is not an option since i have neither product or product key for either. What should i do to get past this problem?

Upgrade Error 0xc004008

I had a computer on which i ran vista 32-bit. I bought the windows 7 home premium upgrade (not full), which i installed on the old os. Everything went fine. Then, some time later i bought a brand new computer (custom, so blank hard drive). I decided to format the old computer to end up with an empty system which i would put up for sale. On the new computer i installed windows vista 32x and the wanted to try out windows 7 64x. I inserted the disc, boot from it and managed to install windows 7 64x, which i am currently running.
 
Now, the weird thing is, during the installation, the product key worked just fine, but when i try to activate it, i get error code 0xc004008 upon entering the code again, stating: the product key you typed cannot be used to activate windows on this computer.
 
What can i do to activate windows?
 
Other notes;
 
- I cannot remember if i ever actually activated windows 7 before during older installations (only installed once before).

- On my local disk (c:) i can see 3 "windows" folders. Two of them are labeled ". Old" and ". Old. 000", which are together hogging 461gb of space. These are from previous times i'm assuming. Can i do something with the older registration files which are still located there?

Upgrade Error Code 0xc004f061

My system originally had xp pro installed. I upgraded it to vista, and now to windows 7. My hard drive crashed and installed windows 'upgrade' on it. Now when i try to activate window 7, it gives me an error code 0xc004f061. My problem now is that when i bought my system it did not contain the full install cd, and therefore the key inheritance from xp pro is no longer there "the software licensing service determined that this specified product key con only be used for upgrading, not for clean installations. ". Does anyone know how i can work around this issue without having to dump more money into full install os?

Error Code 0xc004f061 Upgrade

I recently purchased a toshiba nb305 with windows 7 starter preinstalled. My netbook of course has no cd-rom and therefore my computer did not come with a recovery disk for windows 7 starter. I purchased a windows anytime upgrade to windows 7 home premium and the installation worked fine. However when i attempt to activate my upgrade it tells me error code 0xc004f061 and states that my product key cannot be used for an upgrade but can only be used for a clean install.

I wasn't aware when i purchased the upgrade that it was only usable if you were currently running windows xp or vista. How do i resolve my issue so that my windows 7 home premium gets activated and is still a legitimate genuine copy of windows 7 home premium.

Upgrade Error Code 0x0

I have a dell xps m1330 and am trying to upgrade to windows 7. Whenever i start the installation program, choose my language, and the temporary files are being set up, i get the error 0x0. The error tells me to restart the installation, which does not work (i tried it a lot). I tried booting from the install disk, but it tells me to run the installation through windows.

I have tried to use the chkdsk utility, and everything seems fine. I also used the upgrade advisor, but aside from a few programs everything was fine. Right now i have windows vista rc 1 (all programs updated), 2gb ram, an intel core 2 duo t5750 (2 ghz), and nvidia 8400m gs.
