    McAfee Services


      Hi, I had asked this question on a wrong forum.

      Please assist, Whenever i install a fresh copy of mcafee it comes with services disabled together with the On Access Scanner and Access Protection blocked also. Please advise since i have tried formatting the machine but still the same problem.

          Can you start the services manually?


          Appears to me like an unsuccessful installation. Have a look into the install logs that are being created in the %temp% directory. You can post/attach them to

          the thread, they are very cryptic those MSI logs, but maybe something sticks out that can point into some direction.

            The installation was successfull without errorss. Am thinking it could be something else. I even used a backup of the setup thinking it had isuues but still no success

              I have tried starting the services manually but when I restart they set to disabled so they don't start auto on startup

                Once started manually does it detect the eicar install check? (eicar.org) At least we know that the product is doing something.


                Are there any events logged in the windows event log upon reboot giving clues as to how/what/when service startup for any service failed?


                After the reboot, does the mfevtps service start automatically? (you can check services.msc)


                Not sure if a process monitor capture during boot can reveal something, would try that though.
