    Uninstal your antivirus and reinstal

    reset tcp/ip


    Click on Run.

    Type CMD in that.

    On the command prompt window type ping download.mcafee.com

    You should get some reply from any of the server.

    Get the ip address (for exemple byte 32 tid < 1 ms TTL=128) from which you get the reply.


    Click on Run.

    Type drivers in that.

    Open etc folder

    Open Hosts file in notepad

    Delete all the entries under # x.acme.com # x client host and paste the entries localhost download.mcafee.com download.mcafee.com

    Now save that file.

    Click on Run.

    Type cmd in that.

    Type ipconfig /flushdns

    Type ping download.mcafee.com

    It should now give reply other than

    after that try to update McAfee.
