General Settings Query

McAfee 1.jpg

So that is my question.

I really do not trust the web any more with all the interference going on with it so I would like McAfee to start scanning as soon as I power on my PC.

Reason being I want Microsoft startup files to be scanned before loading.

I've already been hacked once. And it was a very nasty experience.

Thanks for your help in advance.

If you want protection during start up do not tick the box. Boots slower though. I use the faster way box ticked  but up to your choice. See if the mods add anything more.

Thanks for the response, as for it slowing down the PC at startup, the loss is negligible, with all of the changes Microsoft is doing with it core programming, I want everything scanned by McAfee.

It's not that I don't trust Microsoft, but I really don't.😆

In my opinion, your program is from bell.

Contact the company is more suitable to solve the problem.
