I may be wrong, but I am know to assume the worst. I think I might have a virus that McAfee or windows defender cant detect. A few hours ago a message appeared saying my computer is at risk. I opened the security center and it said that real time scanning was disabled and a few other major security risks under Computer & Files. About 2 hours later the same thing happened with Email & IM. If I attemp to fix any of these problems or turn on real time scanning, it says the setting could not be changed because of an error. Also, every 2 or 3 minutes I would have "A computer at 10.0.0.2 has attempted an unsolicited connection to UDP port 5353 on your computer. The source IP is a 'non-routable' IP." I have a wireless router and use an iPod with it, but not during the times that showed up. Also, when I go to 'Manage Network', 2 computers, 10.0.0.2 and 10.0.0.4 are connected to my computer but not the internet. I can't get any info on them and I dont know what they are. Also, the 'M' McAfee icon on my taskbar is glitched and appears as blue and black scattered pixels.
Recently some updates have caused this issue, try rebooting if you see it again to see if it persists.
By the way this version of Security Center is practically obsolete so please more information......
Please include the following information:
What McAfee products do you have? If your taskbar icon is like this: - double-click to open SecurityCenter and then click "View Details" or "About" at the lower right of the new window. Post the details from each module.
A computer making attempts to connect isn't an error, it's an event that is being recorded because you are trusting a network which perhaps you shouldn't be trusting. They aren't actually gainng access so no harm done.
As I said, unless you are actively networking with other machines I would not trust the network.
My network is only made up of my computer, a printer, and a router, which I'm sure I'm the only one who accesses it. I'm running SUPERAntiSpyware right now, and when it's done I'll restart and see if McAfee is fixed.
But I'm wondering - why did the Anti-Malware tool pick up 2 valid viruses that McAfee or Windows Defender couldn't? After all, I'm spending money on it.
