    Cannot set McAfee Total Protection to run Scheduled Scan

      For some reason I cannot get McAfee Total Protection to schedule a scan to run at ANY time.

       

      Windows 7 x64

       

      Scheduled Scans set to Off.

      Click 'Turn On' button

      Shows "Next scheduled scan: undefined"

      Apply button in Schedule Your Scans section is greyed out

      Select 'Set my own scan schedule' radio button

      Set a time/day/etc.

      Click 'Apply'

      Nothing happens

       

      Any ideas?

          I had the same problem with Total Protection on Vista 32, but not on XP. Then I thought throught the difference... User Access Control !. So I ...

           

          1. Disbled UAC via MSCONFIG/Tools

          2. Reboot

          3. Tried McAfee Security Centre, Scheduled Scan and found YES.. it was now defaulting to ON and I was able to set my schedule.

          4. Enabled UAC via MSCONFIG/Tools

          5. Reboot

          6. Settings remained on and even adjustable without need to disable UAC again.

           

          Obviously a McAfee dispute with UAC, yet again. Small coding glitch to pick up.

           

          I Hope this helps others.
