Is there a way to have Mcafee to continue real time scanning but ask what to do and give sugested actions for suspicious files instead of automatically deleting or quarantining them?
Moved to VirusScan for better attention. No there isn't unless the detection is identified as a possibly unwanted program (PUP). We have been asking for that ability to be reintroduced in the home product for around 7 years and so far our pleas have fallen on deaf ears.
If something is being mistakenly identified as malicious when you know it isn't, follow the guidelines here: https://community.mcafee.com/thread/2016
