Part of the problem with the new McAfee Security Center is that it wants to have all computers in your workgrup/domain to have the software installed because it tries to manage all of the open connections between the computers. Part of their new design is to secure the entire network instead of just one computer. Which is a good idea, if you have enough money to afford the licenses for all computers, because you would have a really secure system if they were all synched via McAfee. You could try installing McAfee on all of the machines, or you could also disable that option(I think, don't quote me on that though).

yes i see what your saying but aol now have a policy one subscription one mcafee it was ok before they updated you could use mcafee on all the pcs in the house hold.if i install it on a other pc it seems to take away the management away from the main pc and you cant control the network then its crap.

I personally wouldnt use the mcafee. I sorted my uncles pc not long ago, he runs AOL and mcafee. He had a virus, NOD32 sorted it straight away, mcafee didnt even detect it!
