  2. QNAP Releases McAfee Antivirus for Turbo NAS

    Step right up, folks! Yes, now your QNAP Turbo NAS can feel as sluggish as your desktop PC with a new McAfee AntiVirus subscription. And let's not forget that false sense of security when malware walks right past McAfee AV without even a squawk.

  3. Windows 10, Windows Defender, McAfee Antivirus App

    My new HP Note Book came equipped with McAfee antivirus program. I kept it. Windows Defender is shown as being "ON". I understand two such programs should not run at the same time. I looked in my security settings and found that even if I were to turn
    off Defender, after awhile it would turn itself back on. This seems odd to me. What is the correct way (step by step please) to turn off Defender and keep it off since I use McAfee and will renew it?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    McAfee antivirus doesn't work

    Hi,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community.

    I appreciate your time and effort.

    I would suggest you to go through the below methods:

    Method 1:

    Try to refer the following McAfee articles and check if it helps.

    http://service.mcafee.com/FAQDocument.aspx?id=TS100903
    http://service.mcafee.com/FAQDocument.aspx?lc=2057&id=TS100903

    If the issue persists then try to uninstall and reinstall the MCAfee software on the computer and check if it helps.

    Method 2: Try to reinstall the McAfee and check if it helps:

    a. Press Windows key+X.

    b. Click on Programs and Features.

    c. From the list, right click on McAfee.

    d. Click on uninstall.

    e. Reboot the computer.

    Before uninstalling make sure you have the serial key or product key of the McAfee.

    Note: Antivirus software can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you shouldn't disable your antivirus software. If you have to temporarily disable it to install other software, you should
    re-enable it as soon as you're done. If you're connected to the Internet or a network while your antivirus software is disabled, your computer is vulnerable to attacks.

    You can also use Windows defender, which is an in-built antivirus of Windows, which will automatically activated if the other antivirus is uninstalled.

    If the issue persist, try to contact McAfee support.

    I hope this helps. Please let us know the results. Feel free to write us back for any further assistance with Windows, we’ll be glad to assist you.
