McAfee Security Center is installed on your computer at the same time you install the regular McAfee antivirus software. The Security Center is a quick way to view the levels of protection that are in place on your computer. Occasionally when you open the McAfee Security Center you will see a blank, white screen in the main program window instead of seeing all of features and buttons that would normally be present. Just as shutting down and restarting your computer fixes most memory-related issues, shutting down and restarting McAfee Security Center will fix the blank screen issue.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Right-click on your computer's taskbar.

  2. 2

    Click "Start Task Manager."

  3. 3

    Click "Processes" in the "Task Manager" window.

  4. 4

    Highlight "MCAgent.exe" and click "End Task." This will shut down the McAfee Security Center.

  5. 5

    Click "Start > All Programs." Click once on "McAfee" and then click on "McAfee Security Center." This will relaunch the McAfee Security Center software. You will now no longer experience the blank screen issue that was happening prior to the forced restart of the software.
