And, I just did another restart to be sure all was installed. And I am now getting the Window's action center warnings about Defender, no firewall and no virus scanner.
Even though McAfee says is it running, and its firewall is on !
I have mine set to automatically update as well. The majority of cases they normally install smoothly. However there are times which you indeed may have to do a restart. There are various reasons,not necessarily due to the software.
It seems that all is okay now. It is my understanding that we will eventually be updated to 16.4 late September.
Hope this helps...
I had posted before I seen this. Sometimes you can open your Task Manager go to services and Disable/Restart the Windows Action/Security Center. The Warnings will stop and show all is okay.
Scroll down to Security Center/WSCSV and do so.
could not stop service, got an "access denied" error. There was no disable option in task manager.
Okay, I have done it before. And it works.
1.Open Task Manager
2. Select Services
3.Select Services again (Bottom right)
4. Scroll down to Service Center/WSCSV,Double left click on it.
5. Select disable/apply/stop.
6.Click on it and set to Automatic(Delayed) Apply/Start
7.Warnings will disappear and McAfee will be recognized.
No that did not work either. There is only stop the service, which I did and then started it again. And the same warnings about no defender, firewall and virus scanner were displayed in the action center after it was restarted.
I think there is a McAfee bug here, since the last Windows update was a few weeks ago and McAfee updated today.
I am getting concerned about the testing done by McAfee on Windows 7, before new updates.
Look at the Display I inserted,and click on the (drop down) arrow where it says (Automatic) delayed and select disable.
For I have had to do this before and it (Worked).
Also this is (not) a McAfee issue.
Now I digress...
All the best...
Did that and it did not solve the problem.
Did "disable/apply/stop" then "automatic(delayed) /apply/start" and it still warns about defender, no virus scan and no firewall.
I guess I will ignore the Windows warnings for now and trust McAfee, but I am getting leery.
