Real Time Scanning is Starting .........

Jump to solution

How long does it take to start Real Time Scanning?  On my both Windows 8.1 machines, it takes forever.  It never finishes.  These are brand new machines and almost everything is factory installed.  See this picture:

I have clicked on to set it ON but it never finishes.

It should turn on and switch to a green band almost iimmediately. 

Go to the main screen and check for updates.  

Or close it and run the Virtual Technician to see if it finds and corrects any issues:  http://mvt.mcafee.com/

Hi jtanna,

Did you make any changes in the PC perhaps a System Restore? Also check if you have any other 3rd party Anti Virus Installed on your PC..!
