Quick Clean and shredder gone after I got an update to new UI ?

Jump to solution

Today my McAfee internet security suite was updated from the green UI to the new blueish version. When I looked through the UI I didn´t see how to get acess to shredder and quick clean. If I click on about it shows that both are installed. But I can´t access them. Why ? Are they removed from my paid program ? Or is there something I missed in the new UI which will give me access. Did a reinstall and it got worse now the functions Quick clean, shredder an VU-scanner are no longer listed as components when I open the about tab. Anybody from McAfee who can explain this ? Still had 120 days left of my subscription so it is strange for a company to remove a function in the program that I paid for in advance..

Help please

Shortly after I posted; the McAfee UI reverted on its own to the Old UI. Once it had reverted, I have been able to use Quick Clean and Shredder.

Hello @jonnywalker

Sorry for the inconvenience. I understood that you have new McAfee UI[Orion version] on your machine. We still have those features and can be accessed from below steps.

For Shredder

  • Open McAfee and goto Identity
  • Under identity there is an option "Shredder".

For Quick Clean

  • Open McAfee and goto privacy
  • under Privacy there is an option called "Remove Cookies and Trackers".
  • By clicking  that option quick clean can be performed

Hello the problem is that neither of Quick clean or shredder or vu-scanner is listed under identity or privacy after I got the update to the new UI . I did a reinstall through my acount but those functions don´t apear nowhere in the UI. So your solution is not valid. Maybe you  got another one ?

Help !!

Not sure if I'm entering this in the correct forum.  Apologies (newbie !)

I sort of have this too.  Didn't use lap top for 4 or 5 days.  When started it up, the "Identity" tab was missing, and also another tab (can't remember what it was).  I only have 3 "tabs : Home, PC Security, and account.

Subscription is definitely still current.

I have also tried removing Mcafee and reinstalling.  No difference.  I'm a bit lost without my shredder (though it's still lurking "in the system" somewhere, as when I right click a file the "shred" option is still there) but panicking a bit as I'm really not sure whether Mcafee is working and protecting me.

Any help or thoughts from any (very !) patient people out there would be appreciated.

Tnx

I have a similar issue. Though mine is that with 3 User McAfee Total Protection; while i can see "Remove Cookies And Trackers" since the update (new UI) clicking on it does nothing and I mean nothing; it is like it doenst exist...

For a couple of days restarting the comp got it to work; but now it is not working at all. I have dona  reinstall, I have run Virt tec{which said no problems found} - Quick clean is just plain *ubar...

Really? This is what I pay $100 a year for? Though it still is better {most of the time} than *or***n or anything else i ever tried.....

I am really frustrated and angry.... Fix your product.....
