View Full Version : McAfee Internet Secutriy Suite 2006 wont connect

02-02-2006, 04:30 PM

We have a Windows xp sp2 machine.

We have this McAffee ISS 2006 which I have just installed. We also have the latest Avast anti-virus. I know that it is bad to have duplicate programs but I thought I would wait until McAffee was updated before uninstalling Avast. I just don't like avast as I have sent in another post.

We are on Jetstream and I am using the internet now but McAffee says that it can't find a connection.

I opened IE to see if it was on "Work offline" but it wasn't so I am not sure what is happening.

Also the Gmail notifier is stuck on "Checking Mail".

All the Avast services are stopped.

Any ideas?

The answer is somewhere in the context of your post.

Uninstall Avast.

I would uninstall it but apparently there is this new worm that is going round and I don't wat to be infected in the meantime because it may take ages to download an update.
