    Unknown Boot Records

    risinggeek

      Hi! I'm relatively new to the McAfee community, but the product i've been using for almost a full year.

       

      Recently I've had some trouble connecting McAfee to the internet when I downloaded the update. I got that problem fixed with tech support, but now I have another question. When I do a full scan of my computer, the results now show that I have a total of

      5 boot records in my computer, and under the older version I had 3. I also notice that when I add my Flash Drive, I pick up two more boot records bringing the total to7, but a separate scan of the drive shows no boot records on it at all. My operating system is Windows 8 on a Dell PC, and I was wondering if this is completely normal for McAfee to show this, or if this is something i need to be concerned about.
