McAfee Agent 4.0

Hi,

So this might be a really stupid question, but is the new McAfee Agent a background process? In the sense that I have it installed on my laptop yet there doesn't seem to be anything running in the system tray. With the previous version (EPO Agent 3.6) there was a red and white M that was visible in the system tray and you view the log etc. Is this not available in the new version?

Cheers.

It should still be there unless you've somehow changed the policy to not display it.

Have you got the Udaterui.exe process running ?

Yes it is running but its still not there. Once the new McAfee agent was deployed it removed the red and white M and now all we have is the VirusScan 8.7i running. It says that the McAfee Agent is installed and the Udaterui.exe is running, so I don't know what the problem is.

I take it the red and white M should still be there?

You should use agent policy in ePO to set red and white M display in system tray.
