Still having issues with windows action center when logging in.I have tried just about everything that I have read on these forums.Including unregistering WMIUTILS.Dll file and re-registering.So today I tried the old uninstall reinstall.No luck.I had this issue last year when Mcafee 2010 was released but don`t remember what the fix was.Or if it was a patch.I do know that it was fine until the new Mcafee 2011 release.When I log in Windows action center says I have no protection.As seen in the Image below in task manager.There is almost a 5 minute delay before action center says everything is working as it should.Has anyone else noticed this on there computer when logging on?As a side note.I also had to reinstall site advisor for firefox.Not sure why Mcafee is still loading with SA 3.3. Thanks
Not sure I will Let you know.This was brought up last year also and then it mysteriously cleared up.Not sure if there was a fix or not.I also have uninstalled Mcafee from My machine for over a month.Due to 2 years of problems and recent issues with Mcafee/Windows.I do have to admit.While Mcafee was not on my Machine that it ran faster.But I dont believe that it is safer with the free av that I switched it for.I will let you know if it is still happening after install
Ok will start testing this later on
Ok thanks Tony.For some reason it does not happen always? The white flag on task bar has the red x on it.But if you log in then open windows action center it will say unprotected.When this happens I noticed it will clear up around 5 minutes later.There were others here last year also.Not sure if it was Fixed by Mcafee or not https://community.mcafee.com/thread/27149?start=0&tstart=0

Ok confirmed somewhat and asked up the line. At +2mins after start the action centre shows firewall AV and anti spyware off. Mcafee GUI show s nothing off. After 2 minutes or so back to OK in Action centre. I have queried this

Thank you Tony.I have also tested it to see if indeed the firewall was working anyway.I deleted spywareblaster from the firewall permissions.Then restarted the computer.I then waited about 30 seconds and tried to update the spywareblaster definitions.To my surprise the update went through.Without a pop up from Mcafee asking if I wanted full,outbound only access.This should not be happening.So this is not a windows glich.There are many other posts on here that have gone unanswered on this topic also.Thanks for asking.Much appreciated.
Ok boot up delete spywareblaster again and wait till it all settles down and action centre is showing all ok and then retry the detection. Do you now get the popup?
My action centre off period taday was only 15 seconds not consistent.
