    Mcafee Error 1920 : Service Mcafee Framework failed to start

    Hi,

    When I installed my Mcafee Antivirus 8.5. I get the bellow error. So I ignore the error and finished the installation. But now I am having problem with the mcafee update, I am not able to update it.

    Here's the error message.
    Error 1920. Service Mcafee Framework failed to start. Check that you have sufficient privileges to start system services.

    If your getting Error 1920, try re-registering the file OLE32.DLL, You open a command window MS-DOS and run the following command:

    Regsvr32.exe%windir%\System32\Ole32.dll

    Press Enter, and you will see a window with a message "DllRegisterServer in c:\windows\system32\OLE32.DLL was successful, click the button and I guess <OK> and then you can update normally.

    This problem can occur if the system date is set incorrectly. When services are started, the date the system is checked against external sources. If the system date is significantly different from the effective date, this impact may have privileges to start system services.

    Step 1 - Remove VirusScan Enterprise:
    1. Click Start, click Control Panel.
    2. Double-click Add or Remove Programs.
    3. Locate McAfee VirusScan Enterprise (VSE) 8.5 and click Remove.
    4. Exit Add / Remove Programs.
    5. Restart your system.

    Step 2 - Correct the system date and time:
    1. Click Start, click Control Panel.
    2. Double-click Date and Time and set the correct date.
    3. Click OK and exit the Control Panel.


    Step 3 - Run the VirusScan Enterprise installation program again.

    I think, Regsvr32.exe has become corrupt. It is part of the Microsoft Windows operating system and is used to register dynamic-link libraries and ActiveX controls in the registry. The corrupt file is causing the McAfee installation to fail.

    Delete and replace with the operating system

    1. Start Windows Explorer
    2. Locate the Regsvr32.exe in% SystemRoot% \ System32.
    3. Right-click and select Delete on Regsvr32.exe.
    4. Within 15 seconds a new file is created Regsvr32.exe
    5. Reinstall the McAfee product

    OR

    Get a copy of Regsvr32.exe

    1. Get a copy from another computer with the same operating system
    2. Start Windows Explorer
    3. Locate the Regsvr32.exe in% SystemRoot% \ System32.
    4. Copy the file to a shared folder or removable media.
    5. On the problem computer to replace the corrupted files.
    6. Reinstall the McAfee product
