yeah it has been acting up. it somehow turns off real time scanning. and it starting to get me worried if i have a viruse, i cant scan or update, or if it starts to. it says my computer is at risk and it will stop working, and this is on my Alienware Mx-11 laptop i hanvt had mcafee for even 5months yet, iv used Malwarebytes to can for malware.
Could you please let us know what operating system is installed in the computer ? Also, did you have malware bytes along with McAfee in the computer ? If so try uninstalling all other security software and perform an update and let me know if it resolves the issue.
