Hi,

Under VSE policy and general you have the option to hide options from the icon.. Just restrict What user can see

Best regards,

Jose

You have to lock mcafee vse console under vse general policies,  where define the password which will disable the user to edit the access protection policy  locally on user machine.

Could you give me the complete path/name to the policy.

Re: Prevent Users from Disabling On Access Virus Scanning On.

What avilt is indicating is the tray (icon) so even if you set a password still users should be able to disable from the icon.

The best thing is not to show the options under the icon...

Hi,

In ePO go to VSE policy -> General Options Policies -> Open the policy that you have created for your company -> and chose do not show the System tray icon or Show the System tray icon with minimal menú options

Best regards,

Jose

What is wrong with my ""Access Protection Policies". ? Why is it not effective?

Re: Prevent Users from Disabling On Access Virus Scanning On.

Nothing is wrong with your AP. If you disable OAS does not stop sny service like Mcshield so nothing is wrong.

You should hide the option or put password in the console to prevent the OAS to be stopped

Best regards,

Jose

Re: Prevent Users from Disabling On Access Virus Scanning On.

The reason I asked is when I manually click the option (as shown in the attachment) It becomes "On-Access Virus Scanning - of"

then alert too pops up saying it's disabled.

I have already set a password to prevent services from being stopped.
