I am trying to install a new translation software. When ever I try to copy the activation key for that software on my laptop which has McAfee antivirus installed, this MsAfee anti virus detects the activation key of software as a potential virus and deletes it before I can install or copy it into my laptop from my pen drive. Please suggest me procedure, what settings I should make into my McAfee antivirus so that activation key of that software is not deleted from my laptop by McAfee. Can any one help how to resolve this issue?
I moved this to the VirusScan sub-section assuming you have to consumer/home product installed.
You could try two approaches.
Temporarily disable VirusScan until the product is activated.
Do this by opening SecurityCenter (double-click the taskbar icon)
Click Virus and Spyware Protection
Open real-time scanning and turn it off temporarily.
You could also submit the file for clearance, although that will take some time.
There's a help file I made up about that here: https://community.mcafee.com/thread/2016
