Help!! real time scanning wont turn on and cannot scan!!

Ive been having troubles for weeks now.

My total protection tells me im not protected, so i try and turn on real time scanning and it turns off right away!

also when i try a do a scan an error appears saying its not possible.

I have been back and forwards with online technicians from mcafee with no answers yet.

I have reset everything asked, run all the diagnostic things, run a check disc and no answer!

The log from the virtual technician said i have 12 files or so missing and cant fix.

i have tried to uninstal then reinstal then i was unable to access my account on mcafee to re download!!!

So long story short i had to do a system restore to start over again!
