For some reason, when I open up Security Center, I get a nice white checkmark in a green background and it says "Your computer is secure (no action required).
However, right under it says:
- Stay Protected. Scan Your PC Now.
- It's been over a month since we scanned your PC for viruses, spyware and threats. To stay protected, run a full scan now; otherwise, schedule a regular scan any time.
- Then I have the option to Run Full Scan or Dismiss.
So this is where I'm confused. Even after running a full scan, I still get the above "It's been a month" statement.
So what gives? Is this AV app up to date or not? If so, then why the confusing double-statements?
I feel that some Product Manager overlooked a serious bug here. The very core value proposition of this app is in question, since my confidence level in it projecting me is 0 with these two conflicting statements.
I am running McAfee Security Center v11.0, Build 11.0.623, Affid 105, Last Update 12/2/2011
It''s looking for a scan schedule which you can ignore of course if you don't wish to schedule scans. The scan you ran is a manual one and doesn't removed that warning unfortunately.
I get exactly the same thing and ignore it/dismiss it each time. If you want to get rid of it permanently you'll have to schedule a scan at least once a month.
