I have uninstalled and reinstalled McAfee Security Center 5 times in this computer. Yes, I did the removal tool and uninstalled my old Security. Once I had a tech take control of my computer by remote. The scheduled scan feature did not work for him either . When I punch in the time and date after I turn it on, it keeps saying "undefined" , then it turns off. It will not schedule a scan. It has stressed me out. On my other computer I scheduled a scan and it will not come on at the correct time. There is nothing wrong with my clock on either computers. Both my computers have different OS's.
I am wondering if it is a problem with the Task Scheduler. I am at a loss as to how to resolve this issue. Just scan my computer manually at the moment.
The Safe Mode did not work either. If anyone has any ideas, please help.
I am really wondering if maybe the only answer for people that browse websites that might have malware is to move your stuff to a 2nd drive, reload the OS (with a disk format first), then install Norton Ghost for $69 so that if weird stuff starts happening, you re-ghost the primary drive. Keep the Antivirus and anti-malware (webroot or whatever) loaded because it probably stops 95% percent of the bad stuff.Message was edited by: larry7995 on 11/9/11 9:32:36 PM CST
That said it could be a rootkit type infection
Why punch in the time and date are they not set by the bios?Or are you talking about the scheduled scan setting a scan?
