safe mode?

Jump to solution

HI, Does anyone know if mcafee security should work in safe mode?I have windows 7  and whenever i go into safe mode my mcafee is disabled.

I tried to get help from help center.They said everything is working fine.Could that be possible.Also when i use the recent event log to trace any of the i.p's it just keeps running never coming to a location.I am new to the communities and not the best computer whiz.

McAfee SecurityCenter will not display in Safe Mode but you can right-click a file, folder or drive and select "Scan" and a virus scan will take place.

Hover over the icon that appears on the taskbar to get a progress report.

Yes that is normal for Safe Mode. As I said the SecurityCenter itself wont open in that mode.
