This is new: came down this morning and real time scanning was off, tried to turn it back on, but could not from security center, so I ran VT and he said he fixed it; had to reboot twice. First time that ever happened.
Ran a file count from command line, there are ~172,316 files on my system. Last full scan made it to 13,000 before deciding that was 100% and eveything was OK.
Please click on Navigation >> then Click on About and let us know the version of
- Virus Scan
Post that follow the instructions here reboot the computer and let us know the status of your Real time scanner .
Also, let us know if you have restored the computer to an earlier date (system restore)
Any other new hard ware/software installations done to the PC.
After powering down machine and re-starting and using VT I got McAfee to turn real time scanning back on.
When running VT said DAT was not what was expected, so I manually updated.
This is what I have now:
Since it looks like I am up to date, and real time scanning is back on, the rest of your instructions may be to fix a problem I am not experiencing (today at least).
Still need to see if it auto-updates and can run a scheduled full scan.
