I'm running the latest version of Yosemite and MIS 18.104.22.168 (600). Everything seems to be working fine including Real Time Scanning and Updates, however I keep running into issues during Time Machine backups. What happens is that after the backup starts, I will get a message at some point from Real Time Scanning saying that some malware has been found on the Time Machine volume, and then the backup immediately aborts. I can get around this by disabling real time scanning but that seems a bad idea. So I tried to clean out all my quarantine files on My Mac and on the Time Machine volume but had the same issue occur, which seems strange if I deleted those quarantine files. Is there a workaround for this?
One workaround I tried was to just do a full scan on the Time Machine drive, but that brought up another issue. When I go to do a Custom Scan, there is just a Start button; there is no option to select specific drives or folders. I guess I can just scan the whole Mac, which I presume would include that drive, but would prefer not do do that during the day. So why would I not be able to select any folders or drives?

Oops, it was a typo on my part. I meant McAfee Internet Security! I don't see a way to edit or delete my post so I will start a new one.. Sorry.
Oops indeed, LOL. I edited the main post - hopefully correctly. As we Mods don't use MAC's I'm hoping someone with knowledge will answer you soon, otherwise there is always Technical Support which is free of charge.

Search down in the posts here... I posted the ports you need to open in the firewall to get the TimeMachine/Airport stuff to work properly with the software. McAfee tech support is useless. It took them half an hour to realize I wasn't running on a PC. When they got to the MAC the best they can suggest is to reinstall the software.
TRY THIS (reposted from the earlier thread):
The TimeMachine backups need Bonjour to find the disk (the TimeCapsule or whatever your destination is). You need 1900/UDP enabled for the thing to find the backup disk. Also enabling 5353/UDP makes the Airport Utility discovery stuff work. The file transfer is on 548/TCP (Apple Filing Service). This is outbound only from your client so you shouldn't need a rule for that.
There's definitely some bugs in the "Manage Rules" system on LiveSafe. Periodically pressing SAVE causes it to put in different ranges than what was typed (sometimes just reverting to some old version). Further Save and even sometimes closing the windows doesn't cause the rules to be applied. I found that sometimes I need to twiddle from Public to Home/Work and back again to get the rules to switch.
