MVT found a problem with a registry setting, so that might have something to do with it.
Open your Security Centry and click on Navigation, then on About. That will show you the date & time of recent updates, including to any of the McAfee components. See if anything got updated on the evening of the 21st. There have been some updates, but they're not affecting my system in the way you describe.
Thanks very much for the info Hayton! The log you indicated does not show anything updated on March 21st, but does show an update made today to Virus Scan, version 14.5, Build: 14.5.130, DAT version: 6294. I did go and perform a "System Restore" back to 12:58 a.m. on March 21st, then had to re-update the McAfee software (since it was now giving me the red indicator status of my computer not being protected).
After doing that, the protection status went back to the green (computer-protected) status. In checking the Incoming Event Log at this point, I see it is now properly displaying all the usual massive number of daily port access attempts it normally shows including all the missing data for the past two days & today as well. Lastly, I logged on to the Internet and visited one site, then logged off. When I checked the "Threats Detected" log, it showed the particular cookie associated with my visits to this particular site (with today's date and time being shown).
A McAfee full scan is already scheduled for the early morning hours of March 24th, and I will perform another full scan with the Malwarebytes program March 24th as well...just to make sure everything is o.k. on that end.
So it appears as if everything with the "History and Logs" section is functioning normally again now! Again...my sincerest thanks for all your help!
Just wanted to let you know this document is available to assist with any virus or malware issues you may experience and has another scan in it called Stinger should you ever need it.
My thanks to you as well, Tom, for the additional info! One thing I've been impressed with in the short time I've been a part of this site is the sizable number of individuals with extensive knowledge and expertise in dealing with the many varied problems presented in the discussions. Thanks very much again!
