Malware that disables Mcafee Total Protection

Every time I booted my computer, it took almost ten minutes for

McAffee Complete Protection to reach the Green Screen.   I ran the

free MalWareBytes program from Malwarebytes.org and it found and deleted two

registry data entries that seemed to be the culprits. Why didn't McAfee find them?

(From MalwareBytes log)

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Security Center\AntiVirusDisableNotify (Disabled.SecurityCenter) -> Bad: (1) Good: (0) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Security Center\FirewallDisableNotify (Disabled.SecurityCenter) -> Bad: (1) Good: (0) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.

Re: Malware that disables Mcafee Total Protection

Hi,

The setting that Malwarebytes has picked up,

Is usually set by your Anti Virus (McAfee) or Malware.

McAfee sets these settings.

Thanks.
