Something may have updated and often even if it doesn't ask you to do so, a reboot helps.
I've had it happen here on occasion so it isn't anything to worry about I don't think.
If you are really concerned call Technical Support, it's free.

Thanks for the reply, Ex_Brit.
I'm glad it doesn't seem to be anything serious - nothing else has happened since. It was just a bit alarming as I've never experienced this before.
You're welcome and all the best ;-)
Thought I'd update this as I just got the above message again, oddly when I was offline. The only programs I was using at the time were Windows Media Player and a graphics program called Paint Tool SAI, both of which never usually cause problems. As before, the Real-time Scanner turned itself back on after a minute or so and MVT finds nothing. Any ideas what could cause this to happen offline?
Thanks for the quick response, Ex_Brit.
I've run getsusp, which found 2 unknown files but no suspicious ones. I ran getsusp last year with similar results - I can't remember the names of the unknown files but they didn't appear to be dangerous. Is there anything else I can do in the meantime before McAfee labs email the getsusp results?
Actually, please ignore that last post - I just got an email stating only logs were submitted, not samples. How do I submit samples of the unknown files?
I definitely had "samples" checked, that's why the email response puzzled me.
I'll try the group you suggested later - thanks.
