Two questions about total protection

Jump to solution

 

Hello,

I have two questions about McAfee Total Protection.

1. When I boot to Windows, it takes literally forever for the McAfee protection icon to appear next to the clock. When I open task manager it seems that McAfee processes are running, though. Is this normal? Can I trust that they are indeed all running even though it takes minutes before the icon appears?

2. VPN seems to work just fine, but for some reason I can't make it work with TeamSpeak 3. Whatever location I try to use. Is this normal, is it some TeamSpeak specific reason, or is there some other reason for it?

Thank you.

Only can comment on Q1 as do not use their VPN or Teamspeak. My icon arrives about 60 seconds after Windows opens. Been that way for ages. I think it is normal. See what the mods say.

Re: Question 1 (can't answer Question 2, sorry) -- I find the same thing, that the icon takes a minute or so to appear.  I've also found that the icon disappears at around 8 p.m. (ET) every evening.   Either it reappears on its own, or I double-click the McAfee shortcut and it reappears by the date and clock time again.  If I check Services or Task Manager, McAfee is running -- just the icon isn't there until it either reappears or I bring it back up.  Weird, but there it is.
