    McAfee VirusScan won't run full scan.

      I'm using Internet Explorer 9, I have Windows 7.

      Everytime I try to enable full scan, it says it cannot be done at this time and to try again from the homepage.

      I also cannot change my firewall settings because my computer says they are being monitored by McAfee personal firewall.

          Could you please provide us with some more updates ;

          What is the  version of McAfee virus scan ?

          What is the exact error you receive while scanning (If possible could you please attach a screen shot)

          Please run McAfee virtual technician from here : http://mvt.mcafee.com and post us your session id

            My session ID is 34083531. This is the screenshot of the issue. Virtual technician did not resolve the issue. I have McAfee Internet Security version 11.0.560. screenshot.jpg

              I have the same issue on one of our family computers. At first realtime scanning was disabled and continously got disabled every time I enabled it. When I tried to run a full scan the process was interupted after a few seconds with the same error message as displayed on the screen shot in this string.

              Tried to run the Virtual technician wich found and corrected Registry issues in the first run and then keeps reporting everything OK. Yet Realtime scanning and now also Spyware scanning keeps getting disabled, and Full scan gets interrupted. Also updating of McAfee Total protection is not able to run - the program stops responding.

              Have gone through all running processes and services without finding anything unusual.


              This does not help solving the issue, but thought I would confirm the problem as beeing one seen on more computers and not just a single instance.


              I decided to upgrade the PC from Windows XP to Windows 7 and reinstall McAfee Total Protection. Therefor I won't be able to test or confirm any suggestions on how to solve this issue in a less disruptive manner.

                Regsvr32 jscript.dll and press enter

                Regsvr32 vbscript.dll and press enter

                  When I tried to run Regsvr32 jscript.dll, I received an error message.

                  error code.jpg

                  I ran the other one and it worked. Should I continue to the Internet Explorer and Reset? Or should this problem be fixed first?
