McAfee Total Protection

I keep getting the same error message over and over - "Real time scanning is off."  I click on "Turn on" and it turns on for a mega second then reverts to the alert again.  What the heck????

Re: McAfee Total Protection

Hi JuneAndrews,


Real time scanner could be turned off due to various reasons like ;

  • A Incomplete update to the software
  • Conflict with any different security scanner
  • Inproper installed files.
  • Malware infection

Have you by any chance done a system restore recently?

Thanks and Good Luck.

Re: McAfee Total Protection

I have not done a system restore.  I woke up this morning, turned on the computer, and got the error message.  No new peripheral devices, no new software, the last scan came up clean. So......

Re: McAfee Total Protection

What do you know - just clicked on "Turn on" again for about the 15th time and now it is staying on.  Thanks - fixed now I guess/hope.

Re: McAfee Total Protection

It says its fixed all problems but the real time scanning still is not working.

When going into the diagnostic log it says that 1 process is incorrect and not running.
