When you endeavor to introduce a McAfee Windows security item, the establishment falls flat and the installer shows a red flag with both of the accompanying error messages:
Method 1
Retry the establishment. By and large, this will settle the issue and your item will introduce effectively. On the off chance that this still comes up short, you have two choices:
Utilize our Virtual Assistant where you lean toward direction while settling this issue, see our Virtual Assistant .
Method 2
Run the Pre-Install tool
When you see the mistake, click Done to close the discourse box, at that point take after these means:
Download the Pre-Install Tool.
Double tap the Pre-Install_Tool.exe account, and take after the prompts.
Read the notice message, and snap OK to consent to the progressions.
After the Preinstall Tool finishes:
Click OK.
Click Close.
Restart your PC.
At the point when your PC restarts, attempt to introduce your McAfee item once more.
Continue to the following Solution if the establishment fails again try as above.

This is most probably because remnants of the old software are stopping the installation, why I’m not sure about it.   By the way, both machines are Win 7 SP1 I assume as there never was an SP2 for Win 7…not yet anyway.
Uninstall everything McAfee through Control Panel > Programs > Uninstall a Program.
Then run the MCPR cleanup tool and reboot.
And then go to your online account page and reinstall it from there.
