    Malware that disables Mcafee Total Protection

      Every time I booted my computer, it took almost ten minutes for

      McAffee Complete Protection to reach the Green Screen.   I ran the

      free MalWareBytes program from Malwarebytes.org and it found and deleted two

      registry data entries that seemed to be the culprits. Why didn't McAfee find them?

       

       

      (From MalwareBytes log)

      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Security Center\AntiVirusDisableNotify (Disabled.SecurityCenter) -> Bad: (1) Good: (0) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.

      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Security Center\FirewallDisableNotify (Disabled.SecurityCenter) -> Bad: (1) Good: (0) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.
