Perhaps Vista is trying to give you an estimate of the worth of McAfee
software! d

Seriously, give this a try;

http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/19...formation.html

This is a forum that lists a large number of tutorials to solve many
problems with Vista. If the link above doesn't do the trick, search that
site. You may find something else that will help.

if you still dont get it working then go to the windows security
where you have the red alert bars (you said malware protection) click
change settings...
then there click on i will monitor myself checkbox (it has that
wording.... not working in vista right so i cant check...lol)
then it will leave you alone...

Usually with new computers you need to register the preinstalled security
software. Have you done this? In any case, McAfee is one of the worst
choices for security software you could make (with Norton being another bad
one). My recommendation would be to completely uninstall McAfee and use
something better. Commercially, I like NOD32. For free antivirus software,
I like Avast.
