  • Unable to Update or Run Mcafee Antivirus

    Since i updated my security updates from the Microsoft Website last week, My McAfee antivirus 8 can't get to work. Its keeps giving saying that Scan32.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close! I've already reinstalled it several times. When i try to update it, it says:
    "Failed to initialize Common Updater subsystem. Make sure the McAfee Service is running.
    McAfee Common Framework returned error fffff95b @ 2."

    My system is using Windows XP Service Pack 2


    Thanking you in advance!

    a quick google search came up with:

    Looks like there might be a problem with the common framework
    Found this on another page i googled.

    *Run "dcomcnfg" from the DOS prompt
    Select "Component Services"
    Select "My Computer"
    Open DCom config folder
    Click no on the pop up dialog if it appears.
    Select Framework Services
    Right click on properties and select "Security" tab. Change "Launch" to "Use default".
    Click on "Apply".
    Close the windows
    Run Update
