Re: How To: Download and Install AT&T Internet Security Suite powered by McAfee

I'm hoping you can help...I can download the DMSetup.exe file. When I run it, I am prompted to allow it to continue under the User Account Control, which I do. Then it brings up the McAfee Installer which tries to run, but it keeps telling me my Internet connection is unavailable. I am connected to the Internet, can surf the net, open Web pages, download other files, but this program will not recognize the Internet on this computer. The McAfee security suite downloaded fine on two other computers. I am running Windows Vista Home Premium (the same as the other two computers), the Windows firewall doesn't show anything blocked, any suggestions? Thanks!

Re: How To: Download and Install AT&T Internet Security Suite powered by McAfee

which website did you go to download the software? make sure to use your primary email ID to download it.

BTW, the error UNAVAILABLE TO CONNECT TO THE INTERNET usually shows when the McAfee Suite detects a 3rd party antivirus software installed on your computer. it could be ghost software of an old antivirus. do you remember having an antivirus installed on your computer?

Hi LSAMS,

 

Make sure you're using the primary email address registered for this account to download McAfee. If you are logging in to the Software Center using a sub account it will definitely give you that error.

Re: How To: Download and Install AT&T Internet Security Suite powered by McAfee

I performed a system recovery and need to reinstall McAfee virus protection.  I am hardwired to the at&t uverse network.  According to the Technician Wizard, McAfee will not install due to some network issues.  I tried unplugging the cable to the PC and ensured the firewall was enables.  I plugged the network cable back in and still get "unistalled" messages.  Any ideas are greatly appreciated!
