I made an account just to touch base with the community to see if anyone else has seen a problem like this before.
Essentially I am working with a closed non-outward facing network and I am using standalone installed McAfee products for antivirus on it. namely I am using the McAfee agent and the Threat Prevention and Adaptive Threat Prevention plugins for said agent. However on the systems that have it properly installed, the systems will not virus scan. I am currently not using it as it is a hefty requirement for me to be able to scan files, but if anyone has any idea what could be stopping it that would be great.
