Consumer Total Protection 16.0 R34 Cannot Pause Virus Scans AGAIN

The option to pause virus scans no longer appears under 16.0 R34. The missing pause option has happened before, April 2021, and could be resolved by uninstalling McAfee Total Protection and re-installing.

This time uninstalling and re-installing DOES NOT resolve the missing pause.

Did McAfee remove the virus scan pause option?

Hi @srvalentine 

We apologize for the inconvenience!

We appreciate you taking this time to letting us know about this functionality. McAfee is aware of this change in the scan options and we will have your valuable feedback shared with our development team to include this feature in the future road maps. Please feel free to let us know if you have any other concerns.
