So here's the deal. I keep getting a warning about an 'important PC issue' from my alerts thingy down in the taskbar, and when i click it, and allow McAfee to do whatever it says it needs to do, nothing happens. I went the the McAfee Security Center, and the 'Real-time Scanning' option keeps turning off. Each time I turn it back on, it somehow turns off. I scanned my computer with SpyBot search&destroy, and it didn't find anything. I reopened the Security Center, and tried to do a scan. An error message popped up: An unexpected error occurred. Please click OK to go back to the home page, and then try running your scan again. I tried to run my scan again, about 10 times, and each time the error message came up. I restarted my computer, tried again, same deal.
Some computer details:
I am running 7, on an HP G62, and I use FireFox, and occasionally Opera for internet usage.Message was edited by: jannek on 9/22/10 7:13:40 PM CDT
