Hello, I've noticed on my last few scans, the number of registry entries McAfee has been scanning has varied slightly.
Over the last five scans I had 14360, 14365, 14370, 14370, and 14297.
The last two scans were back-to-back running the same DAT, but I ran CCleaner between the two runs.
I am presuming this is a normal fluctuation, but I just wanted to ask to be sure.
also, just to be clear, nothing was installed between scans other than virusscan and malwarebytes updates.
also, nothing was ever found during any of those scans.
I can't be positive but I would imagine that's normal. CCleaner will alter the number of files scanned I would imagine as it deletes some.
There have been back-to-back scans without CCleaner running.
I'll send an email to McAfee customer support later and see what they say. MVT says my installation is normal, so I don't think it is a problem, but I just want to be sure.
I talked to one of their technical support employees named Silpa. They really were of no help. I am just going to assume this is benign.
Anyways thanks for the help Peter!
