One solution to Real-Time Scanning to stay on for Win XP

For those of you who are or may experience Real-Time Scanning turning off automatically after a couple of seconds, here is a fix that I found worked which was due to a previous version not being stripped out when my package was updated:

Control Panel - Add/Remove programs - Removed McAfee

Rebooted

Ran McAfee cleanup removal tool

Rebooted

Manually removed further evidence of McAfee in Program files and Registry

Rebooted

Switched on Windows Firewall and reinstalled package from my account

Rebooted

McAfee finally installed and computer protected

Can't guarantee this will work in all cases of this but it certainly worked for me.  Hope you find this useful
