Frustrated with Installation of McAfee Total Protection Services (SaaS Endpoint Protection) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I spent a good part of the day working with a McAfee expert to uninstall and re-install the latest SaaS endpoint protection software as an add-in to my HP Mediacenter (running server 2008).  Now, that I have the add-in available, I am trying to install the actual SaaS application.  However, after waiting several minutes, the install times out and delivers the following message..."Service 'McAfee Total Protection Service for WHS' (McAfee Total Protection Service for WHS) failed to start.  Verify that you have sufficient privileges to start system services."  How do I access / modify these privileges so that I can complete the install / start these services?  I am aware that EOL is coming in 2012 and just want to get through this installation so that I can feel more comfortable in opening up this server to remote connections.
