Re: I am not able to turn on Real time scanning

I had run MVT prior to posting and received message that was unable to fix 2 problems(missing files & something else).  I found on a message board to check McAfee program for updates and there were updates available and went through this process and problem has been solved so far.

Thanks for the input
