    Real-Time Scanning won't stay on

      For the second time in as many months, I have the same problem with McAfee Security 'real-time scanning won't stay on'. Each occurrence has followed a McAfee update, the first time was eventually resolved after a while (I was away on holiday, so don't know how long, when I came back, it worked again). After an update yesterday 29 June, the problem is back - each time I turn it on, stays green for 2 seconds, then goes red and OFF again.

      What is going on - am I safe to access the internet while this is happening, and WHY does it keep happening?




      Dell Studio 15 laptop running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, with Service Pack 1 applied

      McAfee Security Center build version 11.0.560 last update 24 Jun

      McAfee Virus Scan build version 15.0.288 last update 29 June (this is where I assume the problem lies, it was working OK before yesterday).

      no other components have been updated since 15 June.

      Have run McAfee Virtual Technician, with the following results (which it is unable to resolve):


      McAfee Security Center 15.0.288 Missing files (1)

      Pending: DAT file out of date


      Anyone have any idea what I can do to resolve this???

          Probably there is a conflict here that causes the real time scanner to disable rrapidly . Please click on Useful links at the top of this page and click on Technical support and get connected to our technicians and they would help you get this resolved .
