mcafee and windows update questions


OSNN Addict
I use a Mcafee antivirus scanner and firewall. Version 10.0 for the virus scanner and build 7.1.113 for the firewall. DAT files are up to date as well. Often nowadays I find that the mcafee icon is black indicating something is disabled, hovering over the icon it says the personal firewall scan is disabled but when i double click it to open the security console it says everything is enabled and working fine. sometimes it will stay like that until i restart or in some instances the icon just goes back to red.

also, does anybody ever have a case where the windows update lightbulb icon appears in the system tray saying it's downloading updates but stays at 0% for roughly a minute or so and just goes away?

I've had similar issues with mcafee the last time i used it on my pc. couldn't work out what was causing the problem. i got rid of it when i last reinstalled windows.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
