The task bar icon has had a white x in it since we returned from vacation on August 27. I have tried various ways to get this corrected through McAfee. They said they would call me personally about this three days ago. They have not called. When I turn off the computer completely and restart it, the normal red M comes up for a short time. Then it reverts to the "unprotected computer" M with the white x. Boxes with the message that my computer "is not protected" appear regularly. It appears only the computer files and the Internet are affected by this. The "Fix it" screen does not activate, so cannot solve the problem through that screen. The updates show that programs are up to date. Recent events show that on 8/30 Real-time virus protection was enabled. I have gone through MVT. It is in a loop. The box for downloading MVT files keeps appearing, even though I have downloaded those.
Hi, Sorry for the inconvenience caused to you, are you still facing the issue with McAfee product. if yes, Then please clarify.
What is the Operating system you use? Did you made any recent changes you made to the computer? Steps Option 1: Run the MVT and fix the issue option. http://mvt.mcafee.com/mvt/default.asp Option 2: try to enable the McAfee services from the services.msc For windows XP computer Start-click on Run-services.msc Check with McAfee Real time Scanning is started. if not then Right Click on the McAfee real time scanning and click on start.
For Windows Vista computer

I finally managed to get the MVT activated. It checked the various McAfee products. Session ID # 20203413. Then I followed your directions to Start > Run > Services.msc. Real Time Scanning shows as Started.
I have an HP Compaq Presario computer with Windows XP Media Center.
The icon still has the white x on the red M. So is the computer protected even though this icon shows it is not?

I have already responded that my email has not changed in over 10 years. The icon still shows that my computer is unprotected. Only McAfee can help with this. My problem seems to have been dropped. Can someone please respond?
This is to check if your issue has been resolved. --------------------------------------------------------------------- My response to McAfee Assurance message of 9/14:
Yes, the McAfee Security program was re-installed by the Chat help person and now seems to be working correctly. The Chat system worked well in correcting the problem, whereas the Community Forum system did not resolve the issue, over a period of many days. Thank you for checking.
