Scheduled scan and exclusions

Jump to solution

Geez, this software is driving me nuts lately. I'm trying to do 2 things: Create my own scan schedule, and exclude my usb drives images folder.

1. I go to schedule your scan and select "create your own scan schedule." I make my day and time selections then click apply.

2. I go to excluded files and folders and click "add folder" then select my pictures folder for each of my usb drives. They then show up in the list. I see no apply or save option.

The problem is these settings just won't stick. I go back and none of it saved.

Am I missing something?

SC 14.0.4113

Thx

I was just about to suggest to do a 'Restart' . Or set the settings through Custom.

Glad that all is okay

I just did the same thing to my photos folder in my usb stick the folder shows up and is still there after I close McAfee and reopen it.

If it is disappearing best to run MVT below and see if it finds anything amiss then call support note the session number MVT throws up.
