    I had the Jacquie Lawson Advent Calendar (jacquielawson.com) running on my Windows 7 computer until a couple of days ago. Then, I no longer had the icon show up and after many attempts to make it work again, I ended up de-installing the Calendar, downloaded and ran PC Cleaner, re-installed Adobe Air, re-downloaded McAfee Total Protection, and re-installed the Advent Calendar.

    Now I have an icon on my desktop for the Calendar that has a McAfee shield on it. When I tried to open it, I got a screen asking if this was a trusted company (or similar language). I click Yes, and nothing happens.

    Now when I try to open the icon, I don't even get the screen, absolutely nothing happens.

    I'd love to see the rest of this awesome Advent Calendar before Christmas.

    Anyone help?
