Every time I turn on my computer I get a window popping open from McAfee announcing that it is scanning my computer. Please help me shut this off. I don't want to have to tend this window everytime I bring up my system. I want McAfee to do it's work, but I'm not interested in all the attention I have to give it. Maggie
If you don't want a scan you can turn it off, but first I need to know what version you have.

Yes, I WANT it to do the scan......I just don't feel I need to know every little thing it is doing.....I just want it to quietly do it's work in the background so I don't have to acknowledge it all the time. I have the shield-shaped icon, by the way. It's not always been like this.....I wasn't faced with it's little pop-open box every day - only in the past 3 months or so. I liked it the old way where it just worked quietly! Thanks for your help.
OK moved this to the appropriate spot.
Double-click the taskbar icon to open SecurityCenter
Click Scheduled Scanning and turn it off and click Apply.
(I suggest manual scanning is best).Message was edited by: Ex_Brit on 16/01/11 2:16:26 EST PM
