It seems like I'm experiencing some trouble when McAfee Anti-Virus tries to update. I get the error log listed below:

It seems you are part of a domain? Have you asked your IT Department? – Ramhound Jun 28 '12 at 17:26

few things come to mind which need to be working are;

  1. *.cab file associations to permit extraction with explorer ( find a .cab file and test it)

  2. "msiserver" aka Windows Installer, under Services near bottom needs to be running or start on-demand.. run> net start msiserver with admin command window or as admin in run box. It should take 5 seconds or less if it says starting up MSISERVER (MSI installer service) , which if it does means you may have fixed it for now. ( run services.msc to see services)

  3. mcAffee*.msi or self extrating exe to msi file ACL's need to be enabled for trusted installer if running from server side script . If web download, ask McAffee

  4. group Policy must not restrict msiserver from doing a windows installer service of 3rd party apps.

If I think of any more... I'll add
