I can just quote what I normally tell people and hope it applies to your un-updated version.
You can't exit the Security Center but you can turn off VirusScan and Firewall.
To temporarily turn off VirusScan do the following:
Double-click the taskbar icon to open Security Center
Click Advanced Menu (bottom left)
Click Configure (left)
Click Computer & Files (top left)
You can disable VirusScan in the right-hand module and tell it for how long.
For the firewall just do the 1st 3 steps above and then select Internet & Network on top left.
Normally you wouldn't need to turn off the firewall though and I don't recommend doing that unless you first enable Windows Firewall
If that doesn't work I need to know what version of Security Center you have.
What McAfee products do you have? If your taskbar icon is like this: - right-click it and go to each application "About" and post the details.
If it 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 did actually see that thread, or perhaps a similar one, as i couldnt see for the life of me how it worked before, but ive had another look and it seemed to be right there in front of me!
thanks for your time, much appreciated!
LOL, that happens to me all the time. Good luck. Let me know if it works.
