Howto enable network scan (McAfee Total protection 15)

In McAfee Total protection 15 (which install under windows 10) i cannot activate the scan on networks any longer. The option is gone. A test virus on a network share is not detected.

In McAfee Total protection 14 (which install under windows 7/32 bit) i  activate the scan on networks. There is an option. A test virus on a network share is detected.

Howto activate network scan under McAfee Total protection 15 ?

From 15.0 network scan option was removed you can still right click on the drive and say scan ie this now a custom scan that should work.

Yes but an "Eicar" Testvirus is for example not found on the network (Windows 10). With versions lower than 15 the virus is found!

McAfee makes the product worser ? I cannot imagine.
