The Cog in the Machine

Level 23
This happens frequently on fresh installs and might due to a missing redistributable. Run McAfee removal tool and McAfee Pre-install tool.#
Then you can install it again. The pre-install tool will install the redistributable for you.
Uninstalling McAfee is pain. I installed Mcafee on my other device. It installed with the new GUi but after a system restart, it reverted to the old one. I guess i will have to wait until they force the new GUi because it is not the first time to have this problem with McAfee.
