@tincup, you never responded to Catdaddy here: McAfee Total Protection package...trimming down a full scan?
Can we close out one problem before dealing with others please?
Your best bet anyway is to contact Technical Support direct, it's free of charge and linked below.

Re starting on time open navigation and general settings and alerts and general settings and disable wait till idle option that will allow Scheduled scan to start on time
Also do as Peter suggests please
Peter, yes please close out my query about trimming down a full scan, thanks.
OK will do.
Did my suggestion work for the starting on time issue?
Peace, your suggestions did work, scheduled scans now fire up as assigned.
McAfee Total Protection Updates/Completed % had remained at 0%, when doing manual updates.
I see an update is scheduled later today so I will watch if the Completed % increments over time.
During the second attempt with Tech Support to reinstall the M.T.P., a Files Needed message
appeared, stating <mfendisk.sys> on McAfee Core NDIS Intermediate Driver Disk is needed.
I don't know how to accomplish that task, and the tech went through it far faster that
I could follow.
I mention this because every time I go through Tech Support to get a reinstall,
this Files Needed message appears and the technician has long since signed off,
leaving me with a faulty reinstall, thus I have to go through Hoop-Land again and again,
and hope and pray that the tech will have the patience to watch the reinstallation process
long enough so that he/she sees what goes wrong.
I'm a patient man, but as of late, I'd rather try nailing jello to a tree,
than have to go through this miasma again.
That message is not common a solution was found in that when you get it you browse to the windows folder
as mentioned here
I had to reboot before I was able to uninstall McAfee Total Protection and Site Advisor using Control Panel. Afterward, I ran the MCPR.exe cleanup tool and then reinstalled Total Projection from the McAfee web site. During the installation process, again I got the ”files missing” box that asked for mfendisk.sys. This time I pointed to C:\windows\system32\drivers and the location was accepted and the installation continued and ultimately completed successfully.
if you still get it call support and ask them to either watch the install or escalate the issue to Tier 2 or 2.5. If you get any resistance post here and i will get the forum resident tech to look at the tread.
