    how do i temporarily disable mcaffee livescan?




      I just purchases a notebook with McAffee LiveScan preinstalled along with windows 8.


      I want to upgrade to windows 8.1, but have to temporarily disable McAffee LiveScan.


      How do I do this?


      Thank you for your help.

          Do you mean LiveSafe or perhaps VirusScan?   No product is called LiveScan that I'm aware of.


          On your Desktop App there should be a McAfee icon next to the clock at lower right or on the actual desktop.

          Double-click to Open McAfee SecurityCenter.

          Go to Virus and Spyware Protection > Real-Time Scanning and click "Turn Off" then tell it for how long.


          Make sure it's back on once finished.
