Post 37 vinod r is a mcafee tech he says default setting in version 9 you are running is manual. I seem to remember seeing that as well. Several posts re that around.
Keep an eye on that warning
Indeed - thanks for your quick reply.
In fact, when I just opened services.msc to re-set it back to manual, it had already done so.
Seems that my attempt to change it to "automatic" (even though it appeared to "stick" when I did it), could not override the default settings.
So, I guess this begs the next question:
Why did I get the "system not protected" alert upon system start last time?
(Sorry, I didn't write down the details of the error messages before clicking "fix it".)
This happened once before in the 4 months that I've had this system, and seemed to be an isolated occurrence.
I checked msconfig > startup and everything seems in order there.
I have had no problems with MBAM Pro 1.46 loading at Windows startup b/c it actually loads well AFTER McAfee services (and I start WinPatrol manually after everything else is loaded), so I don't think that is the problem.
I haven't had a need to run MVT on this system yet, but I suppose that if it reoccurs, I might need to take that step?
I sure hope McAfee isn't starting to misbehave on this box.
I've stuck with it - reluctantly - for now, since it seems both stable and compatible with my software/hardware.
Check your event logs they might say why the error occurred. If not monitor...
Good idea, but, Nope, nuthin' there.
If things turn wonky and necessitate uninstall/clean/reinstall, it may well be to another product, so we'll hope things remain stable.
We hope as well as you are helping out here and that is appreciated.
