We are running the above combinations and every time that I change a VirusScan setting it is automatically restored to the previous setting within a few minutes. Clearly there must be some process running but I have no idea where.
Is the VSE install managed by an EPO agent that connects to a central EPO server, this would manage the servers AV policies and if you change them set them back to what your AV administrator has set for this server?
I think there is a EPO agent ( I have never used McAfee before, so I do not understand the terminology). The "Prevent Mass Mailing Worms..." in the "Access Protection" is stopping the beserver.exe sending emails of the backup status. When I add the program to the allowed list, it is changed back within a few minutes.
I have found the McAfee ProtectionPilot, but that does not seem to help.
