Re: McAfee Icon

If you have VirusScan installed when you right click on a file you should see the red 'M' followed by the word 'scan'.

HI,

I do have the red M by the clock .When I do a right click on the M is there supposed a small m by scan.I have seen it on my father's computer.Is there any reason I don't see the little m icon next to scan on my computer. Is it a setting.

Thanks

OK, I think I got you now.

When I right click on the M by the clock, I have no little M  before the word scan.

However if I right click on a file, there is a little M before the word scan.

I will check this against my other puters, this one is XP sp3.

Re: McAfee Icon

Ron,

I have you all confused.When I click on a file I don't see the little m next to scan.When I right click on the big M by the clock no little m by the word scan.Yes I am running xp home sp3.I downloaded the signature files again, so let's let this go till tommorrow.I once work with a tech & I remembered how he reloaded the sig files.After we did that the next morning I saw the little m where it should be.After we downloaded the signature files it showed up the next day.

Thanks Ron
