Alert Security Center your system is not protected

I am starting to see this message come up every now and then. Sometimes it will say "not fully protected". Has happened maybe 3 or 4 times in the last several weeks. I go into Security center and click "fix" and then everything is fine until it happens again.

I have had McAfee security center for the past 4 years and renewed my subscription last September, so I am updated with the latest installments. Never had this happen before a few weeks ago. Any ideas on what could be causing this? Any help appreciated.

can you post more information about the not protected status of mcafee...

when mcafee is not protected please don't click on fix... instead run mcafee virtual technician... you can find the link in my signature... please post the session ID that MVT provides you...
