    McAfee Updates Automatically Even With Automatic Updates Turned Off


      I'm not sure if this belongs in the Firewall discussion or Security Center discussion, but since I started having issues with my firewall turning off (which I think I have solved by doing a system restore to an earlier date before the problems started) when I start up my computer, McAfee will check for and download updates even though I have automatic updating turned off.  Does anybody have any idea why that is occurring?


      I prefer to control the updating myself so I have auto-updates turned off, but McAfee updates automatically anyway when I start up.  I am running Windows XP, SP3, McAfee SC 12.1, Build 12.1.353.


      Any ideas would be helpful.  Thank you.
