I have windows 7 and have been using Mcafee for ever, all of the sudden real time scanning wont stay on, I did wake up this morning and there was security shield on ? I never installed it. recovered computer to last week and that went away, now still can't get real time scanning to work
Any help would be great
i have the same problem of
"real time scanner wont stay on"
this happened suddenly, i have a vista and everything is updated
what could be the solution, pls guide - anybody !!
That means install Mcafee again? Actually, I don't know what is the problem. I tried to reinstall all the tthings, even the Windows 7 by format the hardrive. However, the problem arise again. It is very troublesome that happen again and again.
1 What have you installed list the programs. Especially any antimalware ones.
2 Run chkdsk c: /r to see if you have any bad sectors.
3. Tried MVT as mentioned above?
4. Go to run and services and see what services show as stopped for Mcafee
Your windows in english? if so try uninstalling and reinstalling from the australian server the new version there and might work for you.Message was edited by: Peacekeeper on 9/05/11 6:41:14 AM
I had the same problem as wforacing.
So after searching for a solution on the community website I did find this topic.
The cool thing now is that in the time that I finished reading all the replies, the newest McAfee update (which I initiated) was installed. And when I clicked on the homecenter of McAfee EVERYTHING WAS GREEN, even the real time scan.
(be sure you always update or change anything as a administrator)
So probably you just need an update.
One other thing that can cause this is an inaccurate system clock so make sure it is correct, both time and timezone-wise.Message was edited by: Ex_Brit on 10/05/11 10:34:45 EDT AM
