Hello! I am from Russia! I am sorry for the poor knowledge of English.
I really like the product of McAfee Total Protection 2012, but I have difficulties in using it.
So, it does not allow me to visit some of the sites. Also does not give the opportunity to work with some files, taking it for viruses.
I would like to find a common language with it. For this I need clear guidance on setting up the product, so I could avoid these and other problems in future.
I really hope for your help to find such documentation.Message was edited by: bazaroff on 9/2/12 8:45:29 AM CDT
SiteAdvisor mey be warning you about certain websites but you can override it if you wish.
Regarding the antivirus labelling some software as bad you should read here: https://community.mcafee.com/thread/2016
Unfortunatel there is no way of telling the software to ignore something.
Ex_Brit, thanks a lot!
Sorry for my obsession.
Obviously, to solute various problems it requires different actions. This all is very difficult to learn.
Is there a possibility to temporarily completely disable the product as it is sold in similar products from other developers?
Of course, if I knew what part of the product is responsible for various activities, I would search the answer to the question how to turn off this part.
But, if there is trouble, I do not know it, but I know only that some restrictions introduced Total Protection.
For example, at the time when I used Avast, I could call from the tray context menu and select "stop on-acess protection". After that, I could do whatever I want and do not worry about interference Avast.
Is there such feature in McAfee Total Protection 2012?
You can disable real-time protection (VirusScan) but there really should not be any need to do so because it would leave you open to infection.
Open SecurityCenter by double-clicking the taskbar icon
Click Virus and Spyware Protection
Click Real-Time Scanning
Turn it off there and tell it for how long.
You can do the same with the Firewall, but again it should never be necessary to do so by, clickng the Web and Email Protection.
Thank you so much for your help!
I understand that when I cut off some part of the product, I am responsible for data safety.
Previously I did actions you are talking about concerning SecurityCenter. But I was disappointed!
Indeed, if I disable SecurityCenter, the file that is necessary for me to work was not removed immediately by extracting it from the archive. But, before I start to work with it as it disappeared from my hands! (((
Obviously, turning off this part is not enough to solve my problem. (
