    Yellow Exclaimation Mark Warning - Failure to Scan Files...

      Hi this is my first post and I have signed up purely to sort out a rather irksome problem.

      It started with my older version McAfee products, VS 12 I believe, but now I have recently updated to Total Protection 2009 to inc VS 13 then I still have the problem.

      I have found others with the same problem and followed the advice given by Vinrod mainly.

      But alas, no fix.

      Here is the info:

      So it started with this

      Which clicking on gives you this:

      So you click fix and a full scan is initiated.

      However the full scan will not complete and McAfee looses the "scan progress".


      I have tried running Lavasoft, CCleaner, McAfee Clean-up tools for Cookies, Spyware, Malware etc. But nothing has been found.

      The only thing that McAfee picks up but cannot clean is a Reg Key:

      Would this be a problem?

      Anyway, after all that not working I read a few more of Vinrod's posts and downloaded Malwarebytes. Here is my log:

      Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.30
      Database version: 1423

      Folders Infected:
      (No malicious items detected)

      Files Infected:
      (No malicious items detected)

      So I'm at a loss as to what to do now.

      I have also tried to see if the VS stops on a particular File /Folder and it did appear to. So I deleted that whole folder and then scanned everything again. Rebooted. No change.
