to turn off temporarily McAfee Anti-Virus

Jump to solution

Hello and good afternoon,

By way of re-introduction, I help consumers to remove malware off their systems at a few other community forums.

From time-to-time, one or the other will need to turn off McAfee so that we can run some other tools.  But then a few will run into a situation where they are -not- able to turn off real-time protection completly or at all.

Is there a document or sticky note here (or maybe even the user guide) on alternate ways to turn off temporarily McAfee Anti-Virus ?

I'd appreciate your pointing me towards a good reference.

No there is no user manual per se but if you open SecurityCenter then click Navigation > Help or just plain Help depending on version there's a pretty comprehensive help file.

There's an online one here which covers most of the software up to and including Total Protection:  HERE

If you would like to turn off McAfee antivirus then you need to turn off McAfee firewall and McAfee Real time scanning.

Path - McAfee firewall - firewall setting - Turn Off - select time frame - Done

            McAfee Real time scanning - Real time scanning setting's - Turn off - select time frame - Done
