I received a message when I started my computer today, which reads: 'Some components of ActiveShield are either missing or might not have been installed properly. Please reinstall Active Shield'.

I received this message once before and I contacted Mcafee Tech Support and they gave me the steps to correct this issue. I followed their instructions, but once again I have received this message regarding Active Shield.

I've been having a problem with VirusScan repeatedly becoming 'disabled', even after manually 'enabling' the program it will eventually become disabled again.

Any ideas?? :thumbsup:

Follow my instructions below, ALL of them ;)

1. Uninstall all mcafee products and switch to a better Antivirus program, and a better Firewall program.

- it appears its been giving you troubles for awhile anyhow.
- try and stay away from the "suites", and go with different AV and Firewall protection.

I personally like AVG antivirus, and using a router as my firewall.

See here for more antivirus and firewalls: http://forums.techguy.org/t110854.html
