McAfee Security Centre is not working.

Jump to solution

Windows Defender keeps saying," McAfee Real-time scanning is turned off.", " McAfee Firewall is turned off." Also, when I open the McAfee Total Protection and try to run a scan, it gets stuck on a white screen. Same happens when I try to access its general settings. Most of its features (except File Lock) aren't working. I bought the subscription last year in October. I have also attached some screenshots of the app for your reference. Kindly respond.ScansScansHome ScreenHome ScreenReport errorReport error

Thank You!

I uninstalled McAfee using the MCPR tool, removed all registry files and paths using revo uninstaller, downloaded MalwareBytes free malware removal tool and ran it, which found 12 adwares.

After malware removal, I uninstalled MalwareBytes as running both McAfee and MalwareBytes may cause trouble. Then, I reinstalled McAfee and now it works properly!

Again, thanks to those who replied to my query!
