The error message from security center stating that your computer is not protected might be due to various reason like malware infection, incomplete updates or even conflicts with different security software or its remnant.But I do want to inform you that due to this the overall security of the computer should not be impacted.
To diagnose the reason for the error from your security center, could you please provide certain information like;
What is the operating system you use ?
Have you installed any other security software in the computer ?
Please post me with the error message underneath the security center so that we could proceed accordingly.
And regarding the pcture you have posted that is McAfee Security Scan which is a security monitoring program that also keeps track of when the last successful scan took place and tells you if you need any additional protection against malware.
Thanks for the reply and apologies for my very belated response to it
I looked around on line and found that others were also questioning this part of McAfee, ie the pop up displayed above. They seem to have picked it up while installing another program so it must have come bundled with something else. I just removed that part of McAfee from my system and have not been prompted to re install it so I figure that it was not really needed in the 1st place and is used more as a marketing tool for people that do not already use McAfee, since then I have not seen the pop up window and things are running nice and smoothly.
