First, I want to say I am a newbie and know very little about things like this. So, please bear with me if I ask something stupid.
Anyhow, I receive endless Defense+ Alerts, saying “mcod.exe is trying to modify a protected file or directory.” whenever I run McAfee VirusScan. This has never happen when I use other on-demand scanners like BitDefender, AVG and Avira.
Is it normal? How can I stop these alerts? ???
Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.
The alert message seems to pop up each time my VirusScan begins to scan a new file. It is very likely I’ll get thousands of alert messages by the time the on-demand scan completes. ???
As for other AVs, I’ve never got more than 5 alerts.
I got it from AOL for free and not sure whether the software is safe or not. ;D
I wonder how other McAfee users handle it(, if they have the same problem),
when i do a scan with my antivirus or antispyware programs i do it offline and
i exit comodo and then do my scans and get no popups sometimes there is files in
my pending files after i scan and i just remove them and all is well
