I was installing McAfee Live Safe on my Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1 x64 laptop.

Toward the end of the installation I got a pop-up message "The Procedure entry point Set Default Directories could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll"

I clicked OK and the install continued a while but then the message re-appeared with increasing frequency. I clicked OK each time until the McAfee install ended. The pop-up stopped appearing.

McAfee seems to be running ok, reporting everything as up and running.

Might McAfee not be correctly installed or might the pop-up have been generated by something else?

This was on a laptop on which I recently re-installed windows from the recovery drive and windows update had not run before the McAfee instal. I did not want to spend too much time on-line without virus protection.

Since installing McAfee I have run windows update and just over a Gigabyte of 220 updates has downloaded and is in process of installing - it has taken all night so far.

Is there a way to find if something is wrong or was the error pop-up an error itself?
