    McAfee shut off after system restore

    cuppatea
      Can some one advise me please?

      I clicked on a family history site today and siteadviser flagged it up as yellow with reports that downloads try to change browser settings.

      I closed the browser at once and ran a full scan which was ok, then I thought I’ll be clever, in case it has simply changed a setting that might not show as a virus/malware I would do a system restore to the 22nd.

      After system restore McAfee warned it was not fully protected, on demand scanning and some other functions were disabled. Clicking the fix box did not sort it out and an error report came up.

      I undid restore and McAffe came back on. Is this likely to be something dodgy or could it be McAffe has updated it’s self in the last few days and system restore simply took out part of the update?
