    IE7 and McAfee Virus Scan

    I installed IE7 Beta Preview yesterday but it caused a major problem with my
    McAfee Virus Scan(v10). When I tried to do a virus scan or open the Security
    Center all I got was blank screens. I tried to uninstall and re-install and
    again nothing but blank screens. I did a System Restore back to IE6(SP2) and
    the McAfee worked fine again. Has anyone else had this problem and if so is
    there a way to get IE7 and McAfee Anti Virus to work together?

    Yes, having the same problem with McAfee Virus Scan update. The downloader is
    fine, but the installer is a frozen blank screen.

    McAfee support pages say thier software won't work with IE7B2. They plan to
    update for the release candidate -- uninstalling the beta to update mcafee
    took 5 minutes and didn't lose the favorites or RSS feeds... Minor pain but I
    guess I'll be doing it for a while.

    Yep - Same problem. I'll do without IE7 for the moment - Sad, but never
    mind!

    IE7 and McAfee Virus Scan

    I too experience the same difficulties with a blank screen for McAfee virus
    scan, but the Windows OneCare Live Beta seems to work quite well and is a
    good fix or alternative.
    The Windows OneCare Live Beta can be found at: http://www.windowsonecare.com/

    The only way I found to fix this problem was to uninstall it. I contacted
    McAfee and they said that their products would not be compatable untill the
    full public release beta.

    RE: IE7 and McAfee Virus Scan

    I am having the same problem but I see no way to uninstall IE?
    I had made a restore point but XP told me I could not restore to that point
    and did not roll back?

    Vscan looks to be working I just cant see any screen ? or do anything manul
    I cant even uninstall Mcafee...my notebook with Nortons AV and IE7 works
    fine just not Mcafee .
