Unless you are actively connecting with other computers in the neighbourhood, stop trusting the network, it wont effect your own wireless connection.
Those items in the Event Log are failed attempts so you needn't worry about them.
Scan for malware using the free version of both of the following tools:
Let them clean everything they find.
Recently some updates have caused this issue, try rebooting if you see it again to see if it persists.
By the way this version of Security Center is practically obsolete so please more information......
Please include the following information:
What McAfee products do you have? If your taskbar icon is like this: - double-click to open SecurityCenter and then click "View Details" or "About" at the lower right of the new window. Post the details from each module.
I have -
Security Center v9.3
Personal Firewall v10.3
Moved to the correct area. Run those tools.
I found a Trojan.Agent and a Rouge.Link
Both are removed but I still got the error when I try to turn on the McAfee settings
A computer making attempts to connect isn't an error, it's an event that is being recorded because you are trusting a network which perhaps you shouldn't be trusting.
They aren't actually gainng access so no harm done.
As I said, unless you are actively networking with other machines I would not trust the network.
My network is only made up of my computer, a printer, and a router, which I'm sure I'm the only one who accesses it. I'm running SUPERAntiSpyware right now, and when it's done I'll restart and see if McAfee is fixed.
But I'm wondering - why did the Anti-Malware tool pick up 2 valid viruses that McAfee or Windows Defender couldn't? After all, I'm spending money on it.
No anti-virus can catch everything, especially certain trojans, worms and pseudo anti-spyware engines. It's quite common for these specialised tools to detect something that they miss.
I keep SuperAntispyware and SpywareBlaster on my machine as a result.
