Auto shutdown after virus scan is complete

Jump to solution

When I used to do a virus scan in McAfee, it gave me the option of letting the program automatically shutting down my computer after the scan was complete. I liked this feature because I could start the virus scan and go to bed knowing my computer would shut down after the scan was complete. Well, now McAfee no longer offers this option to shut down your computer after the virus scan is complete. Bummer! Does anyone know if McAfee will offer this feature in the future? Thanks!

I reinstalled using the link generated by the "Add Device" option. The install removes the current version and installs the latest, even if both are the same. I checked for any updates. I now have the "Shut down PC if no threats detected..." option again. Previously it wasn't there. I noticed the option "back" on a new install on another PC so tried this and it seems to have worked.
