McAfee Virus Scan will be updated each and every day in order to protect your computer from Virus/ Threats and if there are some critical updates definitely the computer has to be restarted. But if you wish to change the update settings, you shall try the following:
Open McAfee Security Center > Click on Configure on the Right Bottom > Click on Updates and change the updates method as desired.
3. Launch Windows Explorer and delete all McAfee files in "Program Files" but especially in "C:\Document and Settings\<user>\Application Data" and "C:\Document and Settings\All Users\Application Data". You have to set Windows Explorer to show all hidden files and folders (Tools > Folder Options > View tab). Just delete the McAfee folders even if they are empty in all the "Application Data" folders. Can be more than one! In Vista: C:\Program Files, C:\ProgramData and C:\Users\yourname\AppData\Roaming
4. Reboot and redownload/reinstall your McAfee products directly from your account at the McAfee web site, not from any CD that you may have.
