    DB:3.46:Firewall Turning Off No Security History pk



    Since the update to Security Center 12.1, I have had some issues as others have experienced primarily the firewall turning off randomly plus Security History not logging incoming events.

    Before the update to 12.1 I had no issues with the previous software version which was running smoothly except I had to reinstall (per tech support) after the Mcafee 11.6 update due to certain

    function(s) not accessible. So it appears, once again, after Mcafee updates to a new Internet Security version some problems appear again!! Current OS is Windows 7 SP1.

    Initially, after appearance of the problems (firewall turning off randomly and " Security History " not logging any incoming events) I ran Virtual Technician which found an error with a

    registry entry but did not resolve any issues. I unistalled the software via Windows unistall program followed by running the MCPR tool. I re-installed Internet Security 12.1 and

    downloaded/ran Rootkit Remover, Stinger (complete scan) , a full Macfee virus scan and downloaded/ran Malwarebytes (complete scan). Nothing was found after running these programs.

    Internet Security 12.1 appeared to be functioning correctly (for less than a day) until the firewall turned off (2 times when random surfing, 3 times when attempting

    to open Internet Security by double-clicking on icon) and Security Hiistory stopped logging any incoming events after 8 hours. Contacted technical support who remotely accessed machine

    and re-checked my software settings, window services, ran Virtual Technician, uninstalled Malwarebytes, and performed a quick virus scan.

    Tech Support stated that (1) Firewall was turning off because I had Malwarebytes installed even though I told them I had installed Mailwarebytes after I re-installed and the problem was occuring even before Malwarebytes was installed) (2) Security History will resume logging/reporting after the next scheduled virus scan is perfomed (after virus scan performd no events were being logged except previous virus scan program logging.

    Tech support was very helpful but not succesful in resolving the issues. So, next day, I re-installed Internet Security 12.1 and again downloaded/ran Rootkit Remover, a full Macfee virus scan

    and downloaded/ran Malwarebytes (quick scan). Nothing was found after running these programs.

    Current status after two days: The firewall has not turned off, yet, but twice now, for a quick , half-second, the pop-up message "Your cumputer is at risk" appears then disapears but the firwewall

    is still " on " when status is checked. Furthermore, I still do not have any incoming events logged at all. As another person has posted, I wonder if my firewall is even working though status

    states "on". I am now suspect and not confident that it is functioning correctly along with no reporting to access/view in Security History.

    Also, I have never used a registry cleaning program ever, my clock is current time, I do not have any other competing virus programs installed and I am fully updated on the Windows side.

    Though some setups are apparently not having problems, it is still rather disppointing that this has occurred after updating to 12.1 with no solution in sight.

    It's possible that it is reacting to some other software on your machine.

    In this case I would reopen the case with Technical Support and ask them to escalate the issue.

    You could try running the Virtual Technician a few times to see if it will fix things: http://mvt.mcafee.com/

    Try these “free” on demand scanners which will not interfere with your resident AV program -you might need to run them in Safe Mode or Safe Mode With Networking:

    Go tohttp://www.filehippo.com/download_malwarebytes_anti_malware/and download, install Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. You may need to
    rename the installation file to 123.exe or something similar to prevent the malware from disabling/blocking the installation. Or you might want to download the installation file to a flash drive or CD and then install Malwarebytes on the infected computer.

    And/or
    Download Microsoft Safety Scanner fromhttp://www.microsoft.com/security/scanner/en-us/default.aspx

    And/or
    Try Hitman Pro Trial Version:http://www.surfright.nl/en/hitmanproThis program may be run from a flash drive.

    I recommend that you run the HijackThis (HJT) utility and post the resulting log.

    Download HJT from Step 5 in this post “Been Hijacked? Have Spyware..”

    Experienced HijackThis (HJT) log gurus will advise on your next step(s).

    Once uninfected, stay that way by considering the following: Malware comes in so many forms that multiple, overlapping Tools and Procedures are needed to maximize your protection.

    If MSE cannot removed the malware automatically, why not manually remove it. You can do it by downloading the Autorun application at live.sysinternals.com

    Select autorun.exe, that application will help you see all the applications that is running on the background. If you located the said malware delete it manually.

    You may be visiting a web site that has been infected or is hosting malware.

    You should never respond unrequested pop-ups that try to persuade you to download and install software.

    Doing that is the way to get malware because no decent company would use such methods to inform you about that.

I did everything to reinstalling it properly and doing a full clean. I have no virus after all the scans. I dont know whats wrong. Another problem is that sometimes it cant detect the internet when i have a working active internet connection i can surf the web, use other online programs but when macfee tries to detect it during installion it doesnt work sometimes. I tried turning off my firewall for both macfee and windows to test if thats the problems and it doesnt fix anything. I am using windows Xp still latest update. Macfee Security Center v12.1 virus and antispyware v16.1 firewall 13.1. I just need answers if this was already in another discussion please send a link. I never had a problem with macfee till this recent update. its causing so many problems and headaches and i dont know what to do anymore. PLease give me an answer. and btw the virtual tech does nothing!!!!!!!!! Yes i tried all the macfee suggestions i could google up on. Now is there a problemw ith update that they are working on for the next update that will fix this or what. Im rambling but i dont knwo what to do. HELPPPPPP!!!!

    Definitely yes!! It could be even better if you go with best internet security like comodo, f-secure etc.. recently AV test results have been revealed which is found in below link, choose the one which suits for you,http://www.av-test.org/en/tests/home-user/windows-xp/marapr-2013

    DenGriff,

    If those values aren't there then I suggest you follow the advice of
    Le Bouleand try HitmanPro which should repair the issue with MSE. The malware authors like to change things up and the regitry edit I suggested is somewhat dated but still used by some malware just not this one apparently.
    An additional note on
    HitmanPro Kickstart, if you have a computer that does not support booting from USB flash drive (some older XP machines) you may also have to create a DVD/CD with
    Sidekick first in order to be able to use Kickstart from a USB flash drive.

    You cannot have more than one realtime antimalware product running. Doing so will cause performance problems and system instability, and may limit the effectiveness of the antimalware product(s). Most all antimalware providers recommend against using more
    than one product for this reason.
    Many users believe that "if one antimalware product is good, then two must be better". Not so.
    A well-protected platform consists of:
    ·A fully updated Operating System (including service packs), with Automatic UpdateON.
    ·Updated Third Party Applications(Java, Adobe Flash, Adobe Reader, etc)
    ·MSE installed for comprehensive anti-malware protection
    ·Internet Explorer 8default security settings (Reset all zones to default level), with SmartScreen FilterON, and Pop-Up BlockerON.For
    a report on browser security, go tohttp://nsslabs.com/browser-security )
    ·Windows FirewallON
    ·User Account Control (UAC)ON
    (Vista and Windows 7), and notrunning with elevated privileges
    ·A good password policy in effect

    And, nothing is better than having a good backup procedure, and practicing safe surfing.

    Some of the following is already in PA Bear's reply...

    What operating system and service pack?
    Prior Security Software?
    Any security software still installed?

    Please review the following:
    A possible reason for this problem is that you have conflicting security software installed fully or partially on the PC. Remove all other security software from the PC.
    You may need to use a cleanup tool to remove your prior security software:
    http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/protect/forum/protect_start/list-of-anti-malware-program-cleanupuninstall/407bf6da-c05d-4546-8788-0aa4c25a1f91

    Be sure to review this post:
    Check list for installing Microsoft Security Essentials
    (also found here: http://experts.windows.com/w/experts_wiki/89.aspx)

    My recommendation, after reviewing the above and taking action to remove conflicting software and addressing any other potential issues with your setup, is to uninstall MSE:
    http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/protect/forum/protect_start/uninstalling-mse/a63b8c4b-58ed-437e-8086-fa08d80725a4

    Then install from:
    www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/

    Be sure to select the correct version for your operating system and also the language, if that applies.

    In regions other than the US, if that fails to resolve the problem, open an email support case:

    First, try the following programs if you haven't as they may help. I recommend you download, install, update, and run full scans with Malwarebytes:http://www.malwarebytes.org/ and SuperAntiSpyware:http://superantispyware.com/
    and then run a full ESET online scan:
    http://www.eset.com/us/online-scanner. This may or may not remove the infections, but will probably not repair any damage caused by them. Even if they or your current AV software seem to work or indicate you aren't infected or the problem goes away, you
    shouldn't completely trust them and need to continue with the recommendations that follow (so it's up to you if you want to try them first or just skip over all of this and get the expert help you really need as described below).

    Properly and completely removing such infections can be complex and often require manual removal procedures (which may or may not be entirely effective either). Even if they work, I'd suggest the following anyway, so we may as well start there (you can ignore
    the above removal methods if you want as this is really the way to go, but it won't hurt to try them).

    Please follow these recommendations compliments of Stephen Boots - MVP:

    Start here - https://support.microsoftsecurityessentials.com/ and select the link that says - I think my computer is infected - and then select the
    support option for phone, chat or email (options will vary by Region)

    If you are in North America, you can call 866-727-2338 for free help from Microsoft for virus and spyware infections.

    In other regions not served by the link above, go here:http://Support.microsoft.com/securityand go to the “assisted support” or contact us menu.

    If that doesn't work or they can't help, try one of the following malware-removal forums compliments of PA Bear - MVP:

    I can recommend the expert assistance offered in these forums:http://spywarehammer.com/simplemachinesforum/index.php?board=10.0,http://www.spywarewarrior.com/viewforum.php?f=5,http://www.dslreports.com/forum/cleanup,http://www.bluetack.co.uk/forums/index.php,
    and http://aumha.net/viewforum.php?f=30

    I hope this helps. In fact, I'm confident that MS Support will be able to assist you.

    Good luck!

    You should be able to uninstall from the Add/Remove Programs, or Programs and Features, depending on your OS.
    If that fails, you can use this procedure provided by forum contributor
    Aiscer
    .
    1.
    Download the
    MSE installer file from the
    website and save the file on the Desktop.
    This will allow you to find it easily after the download is done.
    2.
    Now press the
    Windows key (or Start key) and R both at the same time. This will open the
    RUN dialog box.
    3.
    Next, delete/clear any entries inside
    RUN , then drag the MSE installer file into the
    RUN dialog box.
    4.
    Depending on your Operating System, after dragging the file into
    RUN , it shouldappear as oneof the three below:

    C:\Documents and Settings\[YOUR USERNAME]\Desktop\mssefullinstall-x86fre-en-us-xp.exe

    C:\Users\[YOUR USERNAME]\Desktop\mssefullinstall-x86fre-en-us-vista-win7.exe

    C:\Users\[YOUR USERNAME]\Desktop\mssefullinstall-amd64fre-en-us-vista-win7.exe

    5.
    Now put a
    SPACE at the end of the line, followed by a /U as seen below:

    C:\Documents and Settings\[YOUR USERNAME]\Desktop\mssefullinstall-x86fre-en-us-xp.exe /U

    C:\Users\[YOUR USERNAME]\Desktop\mssefullinstall-x86fre-en-us-vista-win7.exe /U

    C:\Users\[YOUR USERNAME]\Desktop\mssefullinstall-amd64fre-en-us-vista-win7.exe /U

    6.
    Click
    OK .
    7.
    Restart your system after the uninstall.

    DB:2.66:Microsoft Security Essential Question ad


    Why does my Microsoft Security Essential icon stays yellowish/orange when it detects a virus. I do the update and quick scan and it still wont change back to green???

    DB:2.66:Microsoft Security Essential Question ad

    When MSE finds malware the tray icon turns red and you will see a popup message in the right lower corner of your screen. After you click on the popup to "tell MSE to clean your computer" and the malware is removed or quaratined depending on your settings,
    the icon will turn green.

    The icon should not turn "orange" while "handling" malware.

    Is the icon turning orange and giving you a message that your computer is potentially unprotected? You mentioned updating and then scanning yet you still say you have an orange icon.

    Please see if the following re using CCleaner or Advanced System Care apply to your situation. If not, please follow thesuggestions in thefinal paragraph:

    Are you using CCleaner? Piriform has programmed it for some reason to remove part of the MSE History files and it's deleting the files MSE checks to determine the last time a scan was conducted.

    Open CCleanerApplications Tab, Under Windows uncheck MS Antimalware...that should prevent CCleaner from deleting the MS Antimalware scanning historyfiles. The actions of CCleanershould not have any effect on the antimalware protection provided
    by MSE.
    You may also need to uncheck MS Management Console.
    To re-establish a scan history, you mayneed to run a "Quick Scan" and possibly re-boot the computer.

    Do you use Advanced System Care? We have reports of ASC “deleting” administrative files from MSE in the same manner that CCleaner is deleting them. Again, these are administrative files and the removal of same by ASC is an inconvenience
    to the users of MSE but removal of the files does not affect the antimalware protection of MSE.
    If so, open ASC, in the upper right corner, click More, Settings
    Scroll to Quick Care, Privacy Sweep, go to Windows, be sure MS Antimalware and MS Management Console (if visible) are unchecked.
    Scroll to Deep Care, Privacy Sweep, go to Windows, be sure MS Antimalware and MS Management Console (if visible) are unchecked.
    Click on Auto Clean under Automatic Service - uncheck the MS AntiMalware under windows - then click the button to Apply and OK.
    Or contact ASC Support at:
    http://www.iobit.com/

    If you are not using CCleaner or Advanced System Care, or the above steps do not address the issue, see this thread for other alternatives to resolve this problem including contacting MSE Support if necessary:

    who knows what i should do?

    DB:2.66:I Have Comcast But It Wont Let Me Open The Download Page For Macfee dp


    I didn't use the cleanup tool, no; and now I can't get to it due to not being able to access any McAfee site. When I click the link, I get:

    HTTP Error 403.1 - Forbidden: Execute access is denied.Internet Information Services (IIS)

    What exactly is the problem I am dealing with here? Is it a virus/trojan/malware, or some goof on the part of McAfee that caused it to think it was broken and demand a reinstall?

    DB:2.66:Whats The Best Virus Protection Software To Use? fd


    Whats the best virus protection software to use that does not take up too much of the CPU and RAM?

    for PC programs like norton and macfee take up way too much so I used bitdefender..

    Is there such a program for the mac?

    DB:2.66:Whats The Best Virus Protection Software To Use? fd

    hello,

    i would like to know some of your opinions re: use of anti-virus software for mac. until now i never used any. i never had a problem with viruses else. two weeks ago, i had a bad experience while using netscape browser: lost important data (all passwords, usernames, personal info; favorites; more).my laptop computer started to freeze frequently. maybe the problem is not virus related. but a few days ago, i read some article concerning the appearance of viruses made for mac. if any of you has a suggestion as far as the use or not of such software? if yes, which one would be best. i heard mcAfee is very decent...
    in advance, i thank you
