Everything? Where are you downloading stuff from? Warnings about certain websites I can understand but actually preventing every download is bizarre. If it''s warning that something is a PUP or Possibly Unwanted Progrm, then you can tell it to ignore that, but anything else you would need to submit for clearance to the labs, and that takes time.
Procedure for clearing files that are actually quarantined by the software is outlined here: https://community.mcafee.com/thread/2016
Can you post more information please, what version of SecurityCenter is installed, open it and click 'About'.
Also what is your operating system and service pack (if applicable) and, even if you don't use it, what version of Internet Explorer is installed? The former can be obtained by right-clicking Computer (My Computer in XP) on your desktop or Start Menu and selecting Properties and the latter by opening IE and going to Help > About.
Thanks for your prompt reply: To answer your question i ought to start by syaing about a month ago I did hhave some sort of virus that locked up my machine and was advised to use Mcafee stinger to remove it, which worked!
My sysyem is windows 7 with SP1
my Mcafee is security center version 11.6
Virus scan is 15.6
whenever it stops a download at the analysis stage it never gives me an option to alow anyway 'on my own head' kind of way, even in the list of downloadable programs. Another example is updating flashplayer this morning, downloaded fine but MCAFEE declares is a virus. I had already found the thred you refer to but since everything is declared a virus i was hoping it was more a problem with my end affecting all rather than something i refer everything to Mcafee to check, as i thought it unlikely everything is infected?
Look in the last link in my signature below, lower down, for the suggestions regarding Hijackthis and/or DDS and post a log as instructed there on one of the specialist forums - just in case some malware is hanging around.
The software, VirusScan and SiteAdvisor mainly, will warn about almost any download but usually it's merely a warning. It would mean connecting with your computer to diagnose what's going on exacrtyl and I can't do that.
Technical Support certainly can and it's free to contact them by phone or online chat and linked under Useful Links at the top of this page.
However I would make sure first that everything is clean.
Thanks, will have some time tomorrow [Monday] to follow the instructions and create logs etc.
OK, good luck ;-)
