Total Protection and Malwarebytes

Jump to solution

Upon installing McAfee Total Protection it detected Malwarebytes Anti-Malwarebytes and prompted me to uninstall it which I did.  After the successful installation of McAfee Total Protection I  re-installed Malwarebytes and ran the program.  Malwarebytes detected the following:

PUM.Disabled.SecurityCenter    Registry Data    HKLM\Microsoft\SecurityCenter/AntiVirusDisableNotify

PUM.Disabled.SecurityCenter    Registry Data    HKLM\Microsoft\SecurityCenterFirewallDisableNotify

Is this because McAfee disabled Microsoft Security Center and is not a real threat?

Yes and you can ignore it or tell Malwarebytes to stop detecting it.

There are a number of threads at the Malwarebytes forums and elsewhere about it.

PUM = Possibly Unwanted Modification.
