All Windows computers on the Boston College network are required to have Mc Afee Virus Scan anti-virus software installed on their computer. Virus Scan is pre-configured to automatically update your anti-virus protection every day (except Saturday) from both on & off campus.Sometimes Auto Update does not run automatically, such as when your computer is turned off.In this case, the Mc Shield internal dead-lock watchdog timer fires and the Mc Shield service stops.(Reference: Issue — If a file was cached as clean and then later added to the User Defined Detections (UDD) in the Registry, the file is not detected by the On-Access Scanner until the service restarts.If we have any type of problem with the update of the database, we can always download the file from the Internet and carry out the update manually on our computer.
Thanks again Alan for saving me a lot of time and trouble.With Internet Explorer 11, Enhanced Protection Mode (EPM) might display an erroneous error message that Script Proxy is disabled. To investigate Script Scan performance issues, you must disable EPM. This mode delays all scans of modified files to lower priority background threads.This improves performance for processes that write data to disk frequently and/or write a lot of data in a short amount of time.(Reference: provides the information you need during each phase of product implementation, from installation to daily use and troubleshooting.After a product is released, information about the product is entered into the Copyright © 2014 Mc Afee, Inc.
