For a few months now, almost everytime I turn my computer on it comes up with my computer and files and email and IM are not protected. It takes up to 30 minutes some days if not longer to fix the problem.
I checked my log viewer this morning and at the time that my computer wasnt protected there had been another unsolicited connection attempt. The ISP number is the same number that has attempted to connect to my computer 17 times in the last month. The event information includes stuff like Socks, MCS Fastmail, Installation bootstrap, Plato License Manager, bruce, Optiwave License Manager, Stargatealerts and connection attempts to 10 UDP ports.
Is there a way to fix it so that my protection is always on. Are there any other programs that are compatable to run with McAfee to ensure better protection such as Spybot or something. I downloaded a Malware program yesterday to check my computer and it came back all clean. I really am having lots of problems with my McAfee program.
* Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish. * If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version. * Once the program has loaded, select Perform Full Scan, then click Scan. * The scan may take some time to finish, so please be patient. * When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results. * Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected. * When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to restart (see Extra Note below). * The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM. * Copy & paste the entire report into your next reply.
Extra Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts. Click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately.
I'm having the same issue. It pops up and says it's not protected. I scanned for malware/spyware nothing came up, uninstalled security center, ran the mcafee removal tool, reinstalled it and it still happens.
