McAfee Virusscan enterprise: on access scan sometimes disables itself
Posted on 2009-04-15
I run McAfee Virusscan Enterprise 8.7 on a client. I do not have a server with EPO installed. On the client I run Vista Ultimate. I have the McAfee Framework service and the McAfee McShield Service set to restart on first and second failure.
Still, when loging into Vista McAfee starts up but without the on access scan. When right clicking on the Icon I see that "enable on access scan" is greyed out. Most of the time a fresh reboot helps.
Currently the option "disable on access scan" is greyed out. I do not know if it has something to do with it, but I cannot edit the settings on the above mentioned services either.
How can I prevent the greying out of the McAfee option?
PS If the "enable on access scan" option is greyed out, in the console also Access Protection and On Delivery Email Scanner, and Buffer Overrun are greyed out.
