mcafee won't install

Hi, i've been trying to figure this problem out all day.  I have been trying to install mcafee virus scan and it will install to a certain point bit then a window comes up and it says this page cannot be displayed like a dead website.  I've tried safemode, turning off everything in msconfig and disabling all pop up blockers.  Still, no go.  Any help would be appreciated.

What kind of version of the McAfee virusscanner are you trying to install?
Normaly McAfee shouldn' t be giving a webpage at all at it's install.

Have you checked your computer on spy- and adware?

nationnon,
This can be a problem with the proxy server McAfee sometimes installs.
Check your Internet Options and make sure you don't have 127.0.0.1 as a proxy there.
This also applies to Microsoft Outlook Express sometimes.
Hope this helps,

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Also scan your machine with the lastest version of Mcafee Stinger.

Verify you don't have a virus on the machine.  The inability to install AV products in my experience has always been because the machine is infected.  Hope this helps.

Also check your application event log for messages to help you troubleshoot.

If the above suggestions didn't work, try AVG Anti-virus software, it's FREE, better and more efficient than Mcafee:

I agree with the possibility of a virus.  
Otherwise, in my past experience with McAfee, I've had to go in and rip out all traces of Mcafee (Netowrk Associates) in the registry and c:\program files.  Then try and reinstall it.
