Real-Time Scanning Turning off

The real time scanning suddenly stopped working on my computer, I turn it on and it turns off within a few minutes.  How do I get it to stay on?

Re: Real-Time Scanning Turning off

Several possibilities a big 1 would be you may have a virus. That said try the following first before we look at the virus possibility

1. Have you any other AV programs installed or had been install prior to this version of Mcafee.? This includes other versions of Mcafee. If you have or had  you may nee dto run the relevant removal tool for the program you had. If you had Mcafee (aother version) yopu should have run MCPR removal tool mentioned here

2. try a manual update somethimes this shocks it into working.
