selections in Security config

I am running a desktop with two notebooks networked.

In my Total Protection in the Security conf>Protection settings>Advanced (Ignored problems) There is a page full of items with check boxes. Only two boxes have check marks.. They are 1.Identity protection is not installed in your computer and 2. Security issues reported on one or more computers in your network.

This wording is a bit confusing to me.. "Ignored problems" I don't know what should be ignored.  Can anyone give me clarification on this. Also suggestions which boxes should be checked will be hugely appreciated.

Thank  you for any help you can give.

the "ignored problems" section allows you to tell McAfee which problems you do not wish it to alert you about.

Re: selections in Security config

Thank  you. I now understand that all of the items listed ARE being monitored and if I check one, it will not notify me even though it is being monitored.

Thank you again. It is so nice to be able to get help like this.
