After installing the latest version of Mcafee Security Center software on my Windows XP desktop I have been unable to get SqeezeCenter to work. It attempts to start but fails. Sometimes it will start but then I can't open it in my browser. (FireFox). I have tried the fixes recommended in the FAQ section without success. If someone has a solution to these problems I'd love to hear them.

This very likely is either a port conflict with McAfee Backup - shut the latter down if you don't use it. Otherwise stop it temporarily, change the SC port to 9001 (Settings->Advanced->Networking), restart both.

Or McAfee AV is blocking access to the db files. Configure it to ignore *.my* files.

Or ditch McAfee and get some good software instead ;)

Avast or AVG are both highly recommended by IT professionals. They are also free for personal use.

Thank you all for your support and suggestions. What got me flawlessly up and running was to re-install Mcafee security software while Slimserver was playing my favorite music!
