Ok- My friend's computer ( Also has ATT DSL) seems to have lost his McAfee virus program ( was not purchased but was a free download with ATT DSL ).
So after a number of trials and talks with ATT tech, I found out that during a current re-download of the program that McAfee fails due to what seems to be a missing .dll file.
In this case the error is Missing file: C:/program//mcafee/msc/mcmscins.dll
Talking to ATT about this they say that the file is missing or corrupted ( although I cannot even find the mcmscins.dll file with a full puter search).
I have checked and this is a somewhat common issue, but the only fix that I have seen is some not so trusted "fix dll' website.
Can anyone here help figure this out for me or do I need to take the puter to the shop ?
I would appreciate any corrective comments.
