Keep virusscan disabled after update

    Hi, I  would like to have mcaffee virusscan on access  scanner disabled permantly, the problem is that when the scheduled autoupdate launch and update the virus database, the scanner is activated again. Is there a way to disabe it without disabling autoupdate.

The version of the virusscan enterprise is 8.0.0.0

Many thanks.

Hi

VirusScan Enterprise 8.0i reached End of Life some time ago and the DAT files are no longer updated. Apart from that, it lacks the functionality to give you maximum protection against today's threats. I would recommend upgrading urgently as the solution in place offers little protection. On-Access Scanning (OAS) is one of the main components that keep your computer safe, Switching off OAS will be highly detrimental to the safety of your computer and must be strongly advised against.

Re: Keep virusscan disabled after update

Hi, I undestand the risk of having the On-Access Scanning, but we need to have it disabled for testing purpose, is there an option to disable it without removing autoupdate. Is this option available if we update to 8.7?

Many thanks.

Hi

VSE 8.7i will allow you to do so.
