I have already posted this in reply to another question, but since I am in need of help here it is again:
My McAfee AntiVirus hasn't displayed and downloaded properly lately. Customer Service people tell me it only works with Internet Explorer as default browser, and I should best deinstall all other browsers and my old McAfee installation, and then reinstall McAfee with only IE as standard browser.
Personally, I think I'm going to pass, keep using Firefox and get a better (i.e. thorough, but more compatible) antivirus program.
But I'm still wondering what's the matter. A possible issue: McAfee makes use of ActiveX elements. But although Internet Explorer has never been my standard browser that wasn't a problem until recently.
I did tighten IEs security options at one point, restricting ActiveX elements (I'm not sure but the problems may have started then). I have reset those options by now - no effect whatsoever on my McAfee issue.
Has someone encountered and solved the problem? And if there is no cure, recommendations for a better antivirus program, anyone?
