The exact wording is 'Parental control has shut down unexpectedly and is now disabled'. It happens frequently. I can fix to re-enable but it randomly shuts off. I have looked for updates too without success.
I ran the virtual technician which did update a DAT but did not find anything in parental controls to fix. In fact, while the technician was running, the 'you are not protected' pop-up popped up.
Any ideas? Anyone?
1.Check and delete if you find any other security software in control panel or in C:/program files & common files
2.Click on start - run - type services.msc
3.In the window that opens up check whether all the start up type for mcafee programs says "started" and "Automatic"
If not click on the particular service and change it to Automatic
4.Click on the recovery tab and change all the thre failures to restart the service
hit apply and OK
5.Close all the applications and restart the computer
Do report back if you still come across any issues
