Consumer Total Protection 16.0 R31 Cannot pause scans

Jump to solution

Before 16.0 R31, I could pause full scans. !6.0 R31 (new user interface) does not allow scan pauses, only cancel or background scan. Pausing was useful during full scans because McAfee virus scan CPU utilization prevents using the PC for anything else. Now my choices are basically cancel the full scan or wait for a full scan to complete. Full scans can tale up to 1.5 hours.

Is there a setting that will allow the pausing of the scans?
