I've had McAfee for years on my desktop and installed it on my laptop last December. The laptop is fine, but as soon as I "wake" the desktop, it either says it will start a scan in 60 seconds or it is already scanning and its progress is always 78%. It freezes everything and takes several tries to cancel the scan. It is already tasked to scan every night at 2 AM, so I cannot figure out why it's doing this. Any help?
well scheduled scan rarely starts on time that could be the issue . Does it usually san on time and does it scan when the desktop is hiberinated?
I can give u a fix for the starting on time issue. The scanning when waking could be caused by the scan not starting
there is a boot scan option but the default is minimal scanning.
Is the 78% showing stuck on same file? You can exclude certain large zipped and avi files from scheduled scan settings.
