quick clean off


When I opened my Mcafee today my tracker remover was turned off. I couldn't have done this myself so why was it turned off? Is there a chance it could be malware?

Hi Karthikeyan,

Thanks for getting back to me. I am running a full scan which is 78% complete with no threats at moment. 

I am still confused as to why my quick clean was turned off. Is it something I should be worried about? Can malware interfere with Mcafee settings?


Re: quick clean off


Full scan finished, nothing found.

Forgot to say this turned quick clean issue was with only one of my 2 laptops running same Mcafee Livesafe, it was still turned on on my other laptop.

Any ideas or anything I should be concerned about?
