Temporarily suspending Mcfee

Jump to solution

I have a zip file that when I try to unzip McAfee is putting a file in quarantine & the unzip fails.  When I restore the file out of quarantine the unzipping process, of course, does not automatically resume; I'm left with only about half the files I need.

 

The question is, how can I suspend McAfee to perform this unzip successfully ?????  Or is there a proper way to perform this ?????

Hello @MarkFred  please turn off Real time scan and try to unzip the files. If the files are being quarantined by McAfee, Exclude the files in Real time scan exceptions.

Magesh,

Turning off  Real Time Scan did the trick.  For those having the same problem, take note that you can have  Real Time Scan off for a specified period of time so you don't have to remember to turn it back on.  Also, you will need administrative rights on the computer to perform this action.
