I forgot to add that my McAfee won't let me run any scans either, didn't know if this was somehow connected to the same problem or not.
I had the same problem a few weeks back.I never did a system restore.No one could answer my Question pertaining to the system restore.Unfortunatly I think I had to do an uninstall,reinstall.First you could try to click on icon in task manager and then update from there.I dont remember if this will fix.Worth a try.
If this does not work here is the tool you will need.Dont forget to remove Mcafee from add/remove 1st then reboot and run Mcpr tool.The full instructions are here.http://service.mcafee.com/FAQDocument.aspx?lc=1033&id=TS100507
I just tried scanning again and for some reason it's working now, it's already found and fixed 8 tracking cookies. After the scan is done I will see if the real time scanning is still on and if not I will try your suggestion. Thank you!
O.K Good luck.We can all use a little
I have the exact same problem. I'm using Windows 7 and the real-time scanning won't stay on. However, I followed the link you created so that I can uninstall and reinstall again but the link for Dell that I went to doesn't seem to have anywhere to actually download the security center software without paying for it. I have a subscription for a year and I'm only 4 months into it but I can't find any links to download the software. I haven't even begun uninstalling yet. Any ideas?
I've also started having this problem today. Running MVT found no problems with Security Center, and I don't appear to have any malware or other anti-virus programs on my computer. (OS is Windows 7.)
I also can't use the "oas-disabled-fix.cmd" download, as when I try to follow the link it gives me a white page with this:
mfehidin -i -x vscore.xml oas firecore scriptscan
I'm loathe to reinstall Security Center while there are other options, so does anybody know of any other pages I could get this download from?
Edit: In case it's helpful, in the short gap where Real-Time Scanning is on, in the 'Virus and Spyware Protection' window underneath there's a yellow warning triangle under 'Real-Time Scanning' along with the message "Script Checking is off". RTS then proceeds to switch itself off again.
It appears the link in that KB article is broken I will report it.
Until tromine answers you and I hope he is still subscribed as it's an old thread you could re-enable script scanning to see if that helps.
Double-click the taskbar icon to open SecurityCenter
Click Virus and Spyware Protection to expand
Click Real-time scanning
Click Settings to expand
Check that item as shown below.
Otherwise the usual method toi cure this sort of thing is to completely uninstall via Control Panel/Programs/Uninstall a Program (Add or Remove Programs in XP)
Then run the MCPR cleanup tool listed under Useful Links at the top of this page.
Reboot and go to your online account and reinstall.
