I've got a small script, which is running only if there is running Anti-Virus (it copies files from one machine to another, so I need to be sure that this files are not infected).
For now to determine if McAfee Anti-Virus is running I getting mcshield service state, but in McAfee VirusScan version 18.0 (Build 18.0.4045) I can't find this service.
So, the question is what service is using in McAfee VirusScan 18.0 instead of mcshield?
System Info: Windows 7 x64.
Solved! Go to Solution.
OK got an answer - nothing replaced it.
mcshield is no longer a windows service even though there is still a process with the same name – mcshield
Make sure it's actually the "service" you are talking about and not the "process".
That is a consumer product so have moved this to that section.
How about mcods service instead?
If that's not it I suggest asking Technical Support directly, it's a free phone call and you can ask them to escalate the request if necessary.
That link will give you the option to use online chat as well. It will ask you to run some software first, that's fine as all it does is check your software and then make sure it's OK.
