What should I do ?

Don't bother with or use McAfee, as there are several excellent freebie anti-virus utilities about; some of which are regularly recommended here.

Have you actually bought McAfee?

If so - any prospect of getting a refund?

I agree. There are numerous freebies that work just as well if not better than McAfee, Norton, etc, plus they're much lighter on system resources. Try BitDefender Free Edition.

✔ Best Answer
You probably need to catch up on updates for your windows 7 system. Specifically I think you need this one:

to fix that error. But yeah, why would you pay for Mcafee?
