Hello,I've been using the McAfee Total Protection for a few years and didn't have any problems with it, but today when I installed the newest update it started accusing that the Real-Time Scanning was "initializing" and didn't stop doing so.
Yesterday, I messed up with some portforwarding ( I removed some port forwarding entries while using another computer that is part of the network that this computer is in, though none of the entries had to do with mcAfee services) and this computer popped the "blue screen"(of death), I am not sure if that had any effect the antivirus, because mcafee continued to work properly after I restarted the computer.
Sometimes updates, especially ones involving an upgrade to the software, don't go smoothly, for whatever reason.
in this case it's best to uninstall everything via Control Panel.
Then run the MCPR cleanup tool, listed under Useful Links at the top of this page, reboot and then reinstall from the online account.
If you mess up firewall settings you can always reset the firewall to default.
(Open SecurityCenter, Click Web and Email Protection then Firewall and click restore Defaults).
