I have Windows XP with McAfee Anti-Virus. I need to disable the Anti-Virus for a short time untill I change my HP printer from a USB to a Network connection. I am able to disable the firewall ok but stuck with the Anti-Virus. Please can anyone help me?
To temporarily turn off VirusScan do the following:
Double-click the taskbar icon to open Security Center Click Advanced Menu (bottom left) Click Configure (left) Click Computer & Files (top left) You can disable VirusScan in the right-hand module and tell it for how long.
Thanks for your reply. If I click on my McAfee in the tool bar (Bottom Left) it does'nt open anything, to go to Start then Control Panel, then Windows Security Centre I can disable the Firewall but not the Anti-Virus. If it makes any difference my McAfee I have connected is through my ISP which is o2. They can do this for me at a cost of £15 which I think is a little steep. But may have to if it can't be resolved any other way. Thanks again for your quick and detailed reply.
