I regularly get notifications from McAfee indicating that I'm not fully protected. I'm quite aware that I'm not fully protected by McAfee since I've disabled McAfee's internal scanning for e-mail and IM. I want to keep e-mail and IM scanning DISABLED.
However, since McAfee does not allow me to ignore the e-mail and IM scanning warnings, I have to pull up the "You're not fully protected" warning many times every day to ensure that something else is not wrong (other than the warnings that e-mail and IM scanning are disabled....)
As happens pretty regularly, I pulled up the notification popup today and it indicated that Parental Controls shut down unexpectedly and is now disabled. It gives me an option to ignore, but I don't want to ignore. I want to fix it. But the only option I see to fix the problem will also turn on e-mail and IM scanning. If those are enabled, it creates an extra folder in my Outlook inbox to put McAfee spam files, etc.
How do I fix parental controls without "fixing" e-mail and IM scanning?
Based on the fact that 1,236 people have looked at my post implies that a lot of people are having the same problem.
I finally fixed it. Just follow these simple steps:
1. Uninstall McAfee
2. Install NortonMessage was edited by: Droopy on 12/16/10 7:31:31 PM CST
