I am trying to install McAfee Internet Security 8 because my subscription had recently run out. I bought and downloaded the package for this installation, but have had many troubles trying to get it to work.
We have spend over 10 hours trying to deal with McAfee help, but realized since we were getting nowhere, it would probably be best to ask you.
First, when we tried to open the installer, it gave us a script error that read:
we talked to McAfee about this and they suggested several things. First, we were to try to fix it with a tool that was called "ieregfix.bat" This didn't do the trick, it actually made this worse. It gave us a different script error. Also, in this script error, it wouldn't even let us open McAfee SecurityCenter, from our previous subscription. We did a system restore to get rid of this newest script error, but were still stuck with the Line 210 one.
Next, we were informed we had to uninstall our previous subscription, which we did with the add/remove programs. This didn't work. We also tried manually uninstalling the rest of the components. The installer still gave us this error.
We were then told it could be an outdated version of Microsoft Script engine. We upgraded to 5.6 like they suggested, but it didn't fix anything. We continued to try different things.
We cleaned out all the temp folders, this didn't work. Left us with the Line 210 script error, yet again.
The last thing we tried was a command in both command prompt and also run. We typed in "sfc /scannow". It told us to insert the Windows XP SP2 CD, which we did. It ran for about a half hour, and closed. We restarted and we yet still recieved the script error.
It seems we've tried everything, and I'm hoping that's not the case! Please help!
Thanks in advance,
