How to exclude a file from mcafee antivirus (v.16.0) scan

By default, the setting “Scan Using Minimal Resources” is allowed, which slows down scans. On the Schedule Your Scan options tab, you can disable this action. While your scan times will be reduced, your machine will become extremely sluggish for the duration of the scan, so this is only recommended if your scan is scheduled to run overnight. External hard drives and network drives may also be excluded or disconnected from your scan.
When a scan is scheduled to start, whether your computer is switched off, in standby mode, or in hibernate mode, the scan will be postponed until the next time the computer is on and idle. McAfee’s default settings are for scheduled scans to run only when the device is considered idle, and laptops must be plugged into power for the scheduled scan to start — but all of these settings can be changed.

How to remove mcafee security scan plus from windows 7

I’ve been using the’much-loved’ McAfee for a couple of years and have never had any of the issues described by others. Until now, that is. I’ve had this subscription for about six months and it’s been great, but then it began randomly ‘Checking for Updates’ and running a complete machine search, using all of my CPU. It totally disregards some kind of timetable and continues to update even when I turn it off. When I looked up this issue, I didn’t find much about it, but someone did suggest that it’s likely that a virus has infected my McAfee. Is it really possible?
Thank you for your answer. I’ll give it a shot, but I also posted this issue on the McAfee forums, where a moderator responded that it’s a flaw in the software and that the developers are working on a patch. I’ll let it run a full scan, though.

How to fix real time scanning issues with mcafee software

I’ve disabled the scheduled vulnerability scans in McAfee Vulnerability Scanner, but I’m not sure how to disable the random vulnerability scan. It keeps installing the new version of Firefox when I want to stick with Firefox 46.0 for now because I want to customize it. Every week or so, I have to uninstall the most recent version and reinstall version 46. What should I do to stop it?
I haven’t used McAfee in a long time and don’t know which product or version you have, but I’m guessing it has something to do with McAfee’s “wait until my PC is idle” setting?

For a few seconds, a pop-up window appeared, and four CAB files were downloaded, as seen in the second screen-shot. I haven’t opened them and I haven’t been told what to do with them. I restarted MVT and received the same post.
At the very least, we have you capable of completing a Scan. I believe the issue you’re still having is your inability to (Cancel) the scan? In certain cases, depending on the files being scanned, the program may refuse to scan them. I’m hoping the (Hanging Issue) hasn’t reared its ugly head once more… I’m glad it worked out (Helpful). Please keep us updated on what Technical Support has to say. Best wishes, CD
