I bought McAfee Livesafe when I got this PC over a year ago.

How do I run QUICKCLEAN now (ie this afternoon, not when schedule might run it). Through CHAT I have been given a document : TS101605 :- this is not what I need ...  I have further questions about CHOOSE later. Can you help please

  1. Open your McAfee software.
  2. Click PC Security.
  3. Click Remove cookies and trackers. This step opens the QuickClean window.
  4. Click Settings, and choose the item

Re: quickclean

As far as I see you cannot what I would do is set it 5 mins time and use the schedule to start it. See if the mods can add anything

Re: quickclean

Changing  SCHEDULE to 30 minutes hence had effect of running a QUICK SCAN at the appointed time.

However I think I need QUICKCLEAN  which is different.

Currently when this runs I am promoted 'ABOUT TO ....THREATS & VIRUSES' and CHOOSE (or not)

It earlier asks whether to leave EMAIL running or not  OR SIMILAR

I  abandon it

Re: quickclean

I have discovered how to start quickclean from LiveSafe.

The TS101605 document was not applicable for LiveSafe.

I have therefore produced a revised solution part of the document for LiveSafe clients.

I assume McAfee will update documentation as appropriate for general user population :
