Hello Team,

Can you please let us know the file name or the WMI name used by McAfee through which Windows or any other product recognizes the presence of McAfee on the enduser machine.

Re: file that Windows identifies the presence of McAfee

Hello Abhijit ,

There is no Such files in general that could illustrate the question of yours . Once McAfee is installed , It used its own files and processes for its operations like : DAT update , Detection of a malicious  file etc..

Also from windows prospective , the presence can be recognized by the files that are used by Windows Security Center. 

Hope this helps .

Thank you .
