I am an admin on a windows 2008 server - and currently our McAfee McShield service is set to Startup Type Manual. This is currently greyed out, and so is the start/stop/pause/resume options. I want to set this to automatic.
Any suggestions ? McAfee Framework Service/McAfee Task Manager/McAfeee Validation Trust Protection Service, all exhibt the same issue; but are set to automatic and are started.
McAfee Agent = 4.6.2935
McAfee VirusScan Enterprise = 126.96.36.1995
scan engine = 5400.158
dat = 6997.000
Try this: open Mcafee Console, stop Access Protection and then try to modify the service again. Maybe you also need to disable that option (Block modification of Mcafee) and reboot first, to be able to change the startup type.
I haven't tested this myself though.
