Q: How to (McAfee configuration question)

Can McAfee Virusscan enterprise 8.7i schedule a scan without ePolicy Orchestrator?
I finally got it the way I want it except the virusscan console Full Scan and on-demand
scan properties have the schedule button grayed-out. I only see Administrator from the
Windows XP w/ sp3 login screen in safe mode and it has no password. I didn't get ePolicy
Orchestrator with my McAfee install and there is no Hub or Server here so I guess I am
the Administrator. I set up this machine and gave the user I set it up with administrator
privileges, This is XP Home so I have no users and groups button in my Manage MSC.
Am I out of luck, or will I just have to either get ePolicy Orchestrator or run on-demand
scans manually, when I am about to be away from the machine? Thx paj692

Preferred Solution: How to (McAfee configuration question)

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: How to (McAfee configuration question)

I installed McAfee Enterprise 8.7i on my XP Pro (w/ SP3) and ran the setup using "Run
as" Administrator. I had to set up a password for the Administrator account so the
program would run, but with XP Pro, that is no problem. The schedule button is not greyed
out like it is on the XP Home (w/ sp3) system using the exact same installer. I did not
install it using "Run As" the Administrator Account. I'd like to, but the problem is this; I
can't run the installer from safe mode since the installer service is not running and I get
this error when trying to run in regular mode (Run As Administrator). Unable to log on:
Logon failure: user account restriction. Possible reasons are blank password (That's not
it!), logon hour restrictions, (probably not it) or policy restriction has been enforced. Any
body know a work around for this. It would be good to know how to run something in XP
Home as the Administrator without having to go into safe mode. paj692

I need to set up three user accounts on two computers the accounts on each computer is going to be monitored.
Each user will be assigned access for certain folder or files and certain applications, like internet explorer.
And all usb ports and dvd drive will be blocked. Only the admin will be allow to have full access.

So i need to do something that allow ( managers) to monitor employees activity on the system during working hours.

On one pc is windows xp pro on the other os windows 7 home premium.

Any idea how i can acomplish this task?

I.was thinking of group policy on both computers but on home premium there is not group policy.

Also the users will be using almost all the same programs and files just the with different information.

Thank you in advance.

But for Windows 7 Home Premium you will not have the
Local Security Policy so you may need to upgrade to Windows 7 Pro for that.

This is easier to control with a server like Windows Server 2003 or 2008.

Yesterday, I was browsing the Internet and the the red square brackets went around the McAfee tray icon. The programs logged were two that I commonly used, and had no problems before at all, but would have been blocked if Access Protection was enabled. Since there was a huge list of the two entries (McAfee kept reporting them every other second or so it seemed like), I enabled the block. I changed some settings in the Access Protection log, but now it's just giving me more logs & slowing down *everything* on the computer, especially startup and Explorer; programs I open are unresponsive for a couple of seconds, then restore themselves. Also, McAfee likes to randomly disable itself out of the blue, so I have to a. reenable it myself, b. Windows Security pops up and says it's disabled, and I enable it from there, or c. the option to enable/disable is whited out, but it restores itself after a while. Is this just a McAfee bug or should I be worried about it?

The logs have gotten to a point where everything from yesterday was wiped out because the file didn't have enough space for them...

Is there an optimal configuration for VirusScan Access Protection, or at least a way to reset it to the default? I don't remember which ones I changed, and don't want the ones that are supposed to be left there changed...

Also ran a Malwarebytes scan, came up clean.

I have McAfee Virus Scan loaded on my Dell computer and routinely receive automatic DAT updates each Wednesday. Have never had a problem, until today. I log into my Windows XP account and the McAfee Security Center icon appears in my system tray, as usual, and my antivirus works as normal. However, when my son or my wife logged into their respective accounts, today, a message now appears on the desktop "some components of McAfee Security Center are either missing or may not have been installed properly." I have uninstalled the McAfee components and reinstalled from the McAfee web site. My log in is fine but their problem still exists (they have no antivirus protection). I installed from my account. I tried the install from my son's account, but had an error with the Active X control. Each of our Internet Explorer security settings are the same. I have sent e-mail to McAfee but am not holding my breath. Has anyone ran into this problem lately? Would greatly appreciate any suggestions..

My husband's Dell laptop will be 1 year old this week. It came with McAfee Live Safe which is expiring and I have found that you can buy the program outright cheaper than renewing. But, I have tried to compare McAfee Live Safe to McAfee Total Security and I'm confused. I don't see much difference, and I'm not sure my husband used all the features that came with the Live Safe, so I'm thinking the Total Security might be an overkill. Both programs seem to be available for close to the same prices. Is there a benefit for the Total Security that I'm not seeing?

Better yet - do you think McAfee is a good product at all - or should I be looking at some other security/antivirus program. We also use Malwarebytes and have for years. I certainly don't want anything that will conflict with that - since we've been very happy with it for a long time.

Hi guys, some quick questions about LAN IP configuration:

I have a DSL modem has an ethernet port, and a USB port, to allow for a second computer to connect to the internet. However, I have a netgear 4 port switch LAN/WLAN router, of which I connect one desktop computer to the ethernet port, my laptop using the WLAN, and one computer connected using USB (through modem, not router). Thus, the last computer has a different IP address (assigned by DSL company). My other two computers have IPs assigned by the router, thus, are able to share through Itunes...

...Which leads me to the question: is it possible to configure the ip of my modem-assigned computer to match those of my router's, or vice versa, as I want to allow my Itunes music to be accessible on all three computers. Thanks in advance, and happy thanksgiving.

p.s. I know you're wondering: but you have three more switches on the router, why not use it..well, this last one doesn't have LAN card.

A:ip configuration question

What you should of done is connect all the comptuers to the LAN ports on the router (except the laptop) and share internet connection that way. As far as iTune, you might need to open up the port in the firewall software on your router (check the manual for more details).

Q: "is it possible to configure the ip of my modem-assigned computer to match those of my router's, or vice versa?"
A: No

Network cards are very cheap now, you should use that. Much faster than USB.

This should be simple, but I cannot find details on whether or not this is possible.   What I want (end-state) is a P51 with the 256Gb SSD as the boot drive and the 500Gb spinning drive as the data drive. When I look at the ordering page, I can get both those drives, but there is no way to specify the SSD as the boot drive.  Alternatives are:1. Buy the P51 with just the 500Gb non-SSD, install something like a Samsung 960 EVO 250GB NVMe SSD myself, migrate/reinstall Win10 from the non-SSD to the SSD, and tell the BIOS that the SSD is now the boot drive.Pro - cheaper.Con - more effort and there's always hiccups finding the right drivers.Assumption - the P51 supports the Samsung 960 EVO 250GB NVMe SSD as a boot drive.2. Buy the P51 with just the 256Gb SSD (so it's automatically the boot drive), then buy another 2.5" SSD or non-SSD drive (and the associated caddy kit from Lenovo) and install that.Pro - no reinstall issues.Con - More expensive since I need to buy the larger data drive ($80-$100 and it's free in option 1), plus the Lenovo SSD is about $90 more than option 1. So, can I specify the SSD as the boot drive if I order the P51 with two drives, or do I have to go to alternative 1 or 2? If so, which one is generally recommended? Have I missed something critical? Thanks, ~rick

Hello, again! I noticed last night that a McAfee shortcut was on my husband's laptop. I asked him if he downloaded it, and he doesn't remember. He did download a newer version of Adobe, though. When I checked the properties of the McAfee, it said it was created on May 16, which is the same day he upgraded the Adobe. I don't know if something popped up and asked if he wanted McAfee, or what, but it's there. He didn't intentionally add it, anyway. The file path says it is at C:\users\public. What exactly does that mean? I know he was logged on, if he was using his computer. So why would it say "public"?

it happens sometimes rhat when I want to install a new program that mcafee notifies me that it is PUP potentially unwanted problem > my question is does this message necessarily mean it is a spyware or such of the kind or it is just so because mcafee doesnt recognize it . thank you in advance for your anticipated help

A:A Question About Mcafee Notification

Potentially unwanted does not necessarily mean the file is malware or a bad program. It means it has the potential for being misused by others.For example: Potentially unwanted tool:Application/Processor Not disinfected C:\Documents and Settings\Drew\Desktop\SmitfraudFix\Process.exeprocess.exe is part of the smitfruad fix tool and detected by some antivirus programs as a "RiskTool", "Hacking tool, or "Potentially unwanted"; it is not a virus, but a program used to stop system processes. Anti-virus programs cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert the user.

Am I crazy??? I have an HP computer, run IE AND Netscape, and use Mcafee as my AV! Anyway, barring random driver issues and GPFs, my question for the moment is: How in the world can I get better performance while running Vshield?? It seems that right after startup my programs ... well, heck, everything runs sloooooooooooooow. Of course, when I shut down Mcafee all is well. I have checked my resources (which are now at 71%) and I only get 10% or less after shutting it down. Does this make sense? I have no problem killing the program when I'm offline, but not having any protection online is stupid (Vshield actually caught a bug on an IE haters site and killed it, I was impressed!

I am trying to figure out how to enable the McAfee firewall to allow me to publish to my web host server without disabling the firewall. I went to the McAfee website and it said to right click on the M on the task bar and then click on Personal Firewall. Well, when I right click on the M, there is no choice for Personal Firewall. Here are my choices:

Open Security Center
Quick Links
Customer Support
(The Quick Links does not list firewall as a choice, only "lockdown firewall" and "restore firewall detaults.)

When I go into the Security Center and Click on Firewall, my only choices are enable or disable.

I tried reading the help in the McAfee Security Center. I cannot figure this out. Can anyone help me?

Hello everyone,

I recently bought a Linksys wireless router so that I can finally get wifi in my home. The computer I'm on now is going to "host" the router. I use verizon dsl, and a dsl modem. I correctly plugged the Linksys in all of it's intended ports, but Windows Vista doesn't pick it up. I "googled" around a good bit for the solution. I basically found out that the CD with the Linksys is useless, and I have to allow my modem to connect itself and the linksys at the same time manually (configuring). To do this, apparently, I have to get my gateway address (which would be, and type that into my web browser (being firefox). The Westell site comes up with my connection info. - I "log in" with "admin" "admin" as the user and pass. Now I have the administration to change my modem and connection settings, WHAT SHOULD I DO FROM HERE?

Thank you all very much,

A:Linksys Configuration Question.

That would be unusual that your LinkSys disk is useless, because most will get you started in VISTA as well as WXP.
There are updates at the LinkSys site for each operating system. You will benefit from going to the LinkSys Support site, while knowing your model number and version number, then download and print the Quick Install Guide, the long User Guide in PDF format, and the latest drivers... which may be about 36 MB or more.
Then follow the instructions in the quick install or user guide after you install the latest driver... you are on the right track... you may want to talk to tech support of your high speed connection to see what they require, codes wise... as they vary from location to location.

Dear All,

Yesterday on a McAfee protected HP dc5750 vista business computer, an alert came up for McAfee stating a trojan had been detected (unfortuanetly I did not see this) when she opened an e-mail in outlook, but the colleague whose computer it is, stated it rebooted and opened up a screen with the warning that it could not delete it, the only options available were 'view log' and 'ignore'.

The log stated that the path and file name were SUSP_IRP_MJ_CREATE the only option available to us was the ignore, and after we ran a full scan there was no indication of any trojan etc, we checked the logs and even the event did not appear to be listed.

Since then we have done a system restore to an earlier time, at the moment I cannot remember why, but it resolved another issue.

Has anyone seen something like this before?, any recommendations as to what kind of action to take if needed.

A:Question About Mcafee and your preparation process

My apologies if my reply was not clear.

Restarting McAfee if the log you created didn't have it on, is considered making a change. That is the point of that post I made to you. Changing the status of antimalware and antivirus tools from their status of when the log created invalidates the log posted. The person who reviews the log sees McAfee off and offers you a potential fix with that scenario in mind. But when you run the fix it doesn't work because now McAfee is on. Then the confusion ensues.

I am not a trained malware expert to where I can look at your log and say with any certainty that a step in our preparatory instructions turned off McAfee in your case. I can say with reasonable confidence that that is not an issue that we have dealt with any regularity with other members who have posted logs that use McAfee. This would tell me that there is a high probability that whatever malware you may be dealing with is turning it off. Only a trained malware team member who will be working with you, will be able to answer your question of what is turning off McAfee with any degree of certainty.

if i have 2 fans (MASSCOOL FD08025S1M4 80mm Case Fan) on the back of the case with one right on top of the other, should one blow in or should they both blow out? i also have a arctic cooling freezer 7 on the cpu (or i will when i build this weekend).


A:Solved: case fan configuration question

It really depends on a lot of things. Generally speaking, if 2 fans are close to one another, you don't want one "in" and the other "out" because the air-flow will then be in a small loop and cooling for the interior will not be optimal. If there are plenty of intake ports for air, you may want both blowing out, especially if the power supply blows in.

Think about how air will flow with the case closed. Imagine some smoke flowing through the system.

The problem is that since I purchased ZA Pro my wifes games ( primarily Pogo ) will not download. She just plays online games. If I turn on the Windows firewall and turn off ZA everything works fine. I've tried changing a few settings here and there - one at a time then putting it back where it was. There is so much there I've become a bit overwhelmed and thought I better stop and ask for more help at this point.

I almost forgot to mention what actually occurs. When I attempt to download a game the screen just "sits there" for a few minutes then I get an error message that says " java not working or not found ". But apparently it's working fine because the games load quickly using Windows firewall.

Thank you - Keith

A:Zone Alarm Pro Configuration Question

Open ZoneAlarm's user interface. Click on the privacy tab on the left, then click on the Sites tab on the upper right. Scroll to the website the game comes from, then right click on that site. You will see a small window pop-up with three tabs. Click on the Mobile Code tab. At the very least, for the games to work you will have to uncheck the box by Block embedded objects [java, ActiveX]. You may have to clear other check marks in this tab. Experiment and find out.Hope this helps.Orange Blossom

I have a dual NIC in my work desktop (Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit) connecting to separate routers. Eeach router has internet access, each on a different segment, each on the same subnet. We have 2 independent networks here. One segment is a domain and the other is a work group. Both have multiple servers.

The first NIC's IPv4 is configured with a static IP Address on a Domain and has a gateway configured. The second one also has a static IP address in a work group and is configured with no gateway. This seems to work fine, but the second one shows up as a Public newtork and I would prefer it to be a Work network.

Researching this pointed me to an article that said networks without default gateways are always public.

I changed the second NIC to also have a default gateway, matching the router's IP Address on the second segment. Windows slapped me for having 2 default gatewyas and let me save it anyway. Now, both connections are showing up under Domain Network and everything seems to be working fine. Both connections show that they have internet connectivity.

I fear that just because they seem to be working does not necessarily mean that is is working efficiently. I am also not positive that it even matters that the second one is listed as a Public network. Can anyone identify the proper configuration in my situation?

A:Dual NIC, 2 Segment configuration question

OK, after a bit more poking I now have the second router configured to assign a static leased IP Address for my second NIC where it assigns the NIC an IP address based on the MAC Address of the card. Then I configured the ipv4 for that card to obtain an ip address automatically.

Now, that connection's details show the original IP Address (the one I had previously set as a static IP on the card itself) as well as a default gateway (Router #2's IP Address), and I am no longer getting slapped by Windows for having 2 default gateways (even though each connection shows that it has a default gateway in the details). It is also showing up as a connection in the Domain Network's location.

Visually, this seems to be set up the way I would expect to have it, but I am still not 100% positive that I have good expectations.

Any input?

I have a dell optiplex 755 using A22 bios, I mainly have a question in the drives section that deal with raid autodetect. The options are raid autodetect / ahci, ( get error with this setting ), raid autodetect /ata ( will boot and can sign into windows, raid only & legacy... I had to replace the dell hd because it crashed and was unreadable use western digital hard drives and work fine so what are the differences between th ahci and ata settings that allow one to work and not the other, also the dvd/cdrom that came with the system died a long time ago replaced it with another drive and get the error message of sata 1 (blah,blah,blah), I just press F1 and it boots into windows fine ... this is a refurb system from a company that replaced it's older dell systems with newer ones.

A:Bios Sata Configuration question

Always include version of Windows in your posts.
If you installed Windows on a new HDD and now get an error message when SATA Mode is set to RAID AutoDetect/AHCI in BIOS, it means you didn't install the SATA driver during the Windows installation.
Depending on the version of Windows, you may have overlooked the option to press F6 to install the SATA driver early in the installation process.
You can leave it as RAID AutoDetect/ATA without the SATA driver, but you won't have the benefits of Intel's Storage Management technology. (You might not notice any difference...)
As for the Press F1 error, power off, unplug and press/hold power button for ~15 sec. Remove motherboard battery and press/hold power button for ~30 sec. Now reinstall the battery.  
Note, removing the battery will reset all BIOS settings back to the defaults, so if RAID AutoDetect/AHCI is the default setting for this PC model, you'll have to go in and change that to /ATA, assuming you don't start over and install Windows again with the SATA driver...

Is it possible to configure Windows Store so it'll only show free apps or showing without the picture? My internet connection is not that fast and every time I tried to browse, it takes few seconds to load up a page, if I can just display types of apps (free, etc.) or list apps (without icon/picture), it'll speed up the loading time, but I can't find anywhere to configure this.

A:Windows Store configuration question

With Windows 8.1 you can launch the store from the metro screen, from that location if you scroll across to the right you should find "Top Free".

Also if you right click anywhere in open space in the store to bring up the menu, you should see "Top Free"

I am not aware myself of anyway to optimise for low bandwidth.

Hope that helps,

Well, it's just a thought I've had that since it's possible to connect a console to a PC monitor such as an HDMI-DVI connector for a PS3 for example, what about a way to play the sound through PC speakers? I ask this because not only would I be able to output a better resolution than my SDTV with my PC monitor, but I'm hoping to get better sound too if I could use my 2.1's since they're only a couple feet away (5.1's if I use it at home, 2.1's at the college dorms).

Thank you for any suggestions

I have x2 320Gig Hdds and x2 DVD burners.
Simply put; Can I attach each Hdd to the end of each 80wire Ultra ATA cable as Master and the DVD drives as Slave. Using Jumper settings of course.
Will the speed of the Hdd's be affected by the DVD burners lower speeds?
I have read posts and recommendations from various sources and information is sketchy at best. Anyone have a clear and precise understanding of this. Or any links to Microsoft about it. As I have not found any topic from them at the moment addressing this choice of set-up.

The last 3-4 times my NAV Corporate Edition has run the scan has lasted only 4-5 minutes and scans only a few thousand files. In the past, the full scans had been averaging 50-60 minutes with over 300,000 files scanned. I have checked the configuration and I can't seem to find anything that looks out of order. I've run the live update but that has not resolved the issue either?

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Hello all. Using Windows XP SP 2. After I use run, MSCONFIG, and bring up system config utility, I have it on selective startup. It shows Process System.ini.file and it is checked...Process Win.ini.file and it is checked...Load system services has a green highlighted box next to it...Load startup items with a green box...and Use original Boot.ini is checked with a green dot.
Are all of these supposed to be checked and highlighted like this? I've noticed some greater than usual memory usage and cannot remember if these are all supposed to be checked.
Any help or comments appreciated.
Thank you, Tom.

A:System Configuration Utility Question

Hi Ohfer,
Yes that is supposed to be check once you edit/disable/enable something in the startup it will be changed to selective startup. That is normal, the only difference I have is Load system services is checked for mine and yours is higlighted. I don't think it makes a big diffrence though.
