McAfee VirusScan snoozed

Windows Defender is reporting, "McAfee VirusScan is snoozed and your device may be unprotected." Real Time Protection is turned off. When I tried turning it back on it immediately turns back off. How can I fix this issue? I am using Windows 10 on a Lenovo Ideapad 320.

Re: McAfee VirusScan snoozed

Please run McAfee Virtual Technician and see if it's able to enable "Real Time Scan". If issue persists, would suggest you to reinstall McAfee.
