Solved McAfee Anti-Virus Plus Vulnerability Scan Runs Continuously

August 24, 2016 at 18:51:22
Specs: Windows 10
This in on a laptop with Windows 10. I can't cancel it. McAfee techs in India said it may have something to do with my laptop not getting Windows updates and they could fix it for $180. Nice. McAfee just tell me what the issue is because you already know. Helper..please don't tell me to use another anti-virus program. I just need simple help for a not-too tech-savy user.

✔ Best Answer
"please don't tell me to use another anti-virus program"

It's the best answer. Dump McCrapee & install one of the freebies - Avira, AVG, Avast, BitDefender, or just enable Windows built-in AV program, Windows Defender.

Thanks, riider... maybe it is time to dump McAfee. Tech support is useless!

Agreed, McAfee is bloatware. They are interested in taking you money. Period.
Use the Uninstaller that they have on their website to uninstall it or you will leave behind too much junk uninstalling through Programs.
You can run a manual scan with Malwarebytes before uninstalling it to make sure that there is less chance something will run rampant until you get the new one installed.
You can download your choice without installing it, then download the uninstaller, remove and immediately install for an easier transition.
** Stay away from Norton as well**

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
