I downloaded 2011 mcafee about 2 weeks ago. Suddenly yesterday, i kept getting microsoft security warnings, saying I was infected, and IE kept opening to an antivirus.net site saying i should purchase, etc...(which i did not) anyway..had a friend try and give me pointers. I was able to restore my computer to an earlier date, which allowed me to get back online and what not. I also downloaded microsoft security essentials and ran that. McAfee was showing no viruses, etc...
but now, my real time scanning will NOT stay on!!!
WHAT CAN I DO!?!?!?
well all this was happening before I did the restore.......
what is virtual technician? What do i do with it?
and malware...that will walk me thru the download?
Yes, McAfee Virtual Technician is a program that is dedicated to fixing problems with the McAfee products. (And it is created by McAfee)
Malwarebytes is just install, and then you run it.
so i ran the virtual tech...and it says
problem - real time scanning off
fixed - registry entry problem (1 detected)
problem - missing files (2)
pending - engine out of date.
so obviouslly there are problems...what can i do??
