Hello everyone!

My McAfee VirusScan became disabled, after my computer failed to start-up properly and then I had to restart from a backup point doing a Windows Start fix, I think that is what it is called. Eversince then my McAfee Virus scan has been disabled. It said there were 3 files missing and 1 file changed when I ran the Virtual Technician. My McAfee Program takes forever trying to redownload the VirusScan program. Sometimes it will start to download and then stop and then restart downloading several times. I ahve been unable to get on to the McAfee website to ask any questions because of the program downloading. It makes my connection too slow! I have dial-up internet access.

What could have caused this? This is not the first time this happened. It has happened before. Could there be a virus,trojan,or some other bad program on my computer that makes this hapen every so often? Or could there be some file changes that have been made, that might cause this?

I have finally managed to get the McAfee Anti-Virus redownloaded, But it picked up something on a scan of my computer. Which I will mention in the appropriate topic area.

I still do not know what caused the McAfee anit-virus to become disabled origionally after windows failed to start properly.
anyone have any ideas on what could have caused it?
