Real-Time Scanning won't stay on

Having just had an automatic update applied, real-time scanning won't turn on - each time I turn it on, it stays green for about 2 seconds, then goes back to RED and OFF. I assume this problem has been caused by the update - is anyone else having the same issue, and is there a solution?

I am running Windows 7 Premium Home edition on a Dell Studio 15 laptop.

Thanks for any help

    Hi andy45fr,


    What is the Build version of the McAfee Security Center installed?


    Windows 7 is 32-Bit or 64-Bit?

    === thecreator - One of the people, that has a very good memory.

    See the McAfee Builds I am running at:
