Your download was unsuccessful due to an issue with McAfee download servers. These errors do not originate on your computer or internet connection – instead, they indicate an issue within their systems that caused it. A 12152 or 7305 error indicates a problem on their side caused your download to fail.
For example, McAfee download servers are overburdened with customers trying to download product updates. There’s little you can do directly to address this problem, as its cause lies with McAfee download servers themselves.
Retry Your Download After Sometime For best results, wait some time – such as an hour – before trying your download again. If it still fails, stay longer and retry later that day.
