Right click on your McAfee icon,and open your Security Center. Then click on the (Cogwheel) at the top right of your window. Choose Realtime Scanning/Etc and the amount of time you want it off.

Hello -

I get McAfee through AOL.  It does not have the cogwheel on the Security Center screen.  I may have to contact AOL, however, from previous AOL contacts, I doubt they will know the answer.

Thanks,

Jerry

Hi Jerry,

          You must have the Old McAfee GUI. You should still be able to access your RTS in your Security Center.

What Version/Build do you have? Can you provide a screenshot?  ISP tend to lag behind compared to being purchased directly from McAfeeCapture.PNG

Hello again –

My version is listed at 16.0.4 and 16.4.  Not sure what you mean by RTS.  Anyway, enclosed are screenshots of what I am seeing.

Thanks PK for your quick return.  This  forum is so much better to work with compared to contacting AOL.
