    Total Protection - 'Error' on Full Scan



      I have McAfee Total Protection on my laptop and have received numerous calls from 'unknown' scammers to tell me my security has lapsed - when I know that it hasn't. However, when trying to perfom a full scan of my system, the McAfee box brings up an error message saying 'an unexpected error has occurred during your scan. Please click ok and try again'.


      I have clicked 'OK' but there is no change to the message. The McAfee info box tells me that 'your computer is secure' - but why won't it allow me to conduct a full scan? Can anyone help please?
