To whom it may concern,

I have been having problems with Mcafee Security Center for a few days now. On occasion it will disable virus protection componenets,
and then it would warn me to click a button to fix it, but it will fix itself if left alone. Normally, I would not be concerned, but recently,
when I was playing an online game, the game closed down due to it supposedly detecting a hack. I tried to log back in, but it
said somthing like "You have been banned for 10 minutes to stop abuse of hack". I have tried numerous times to use Mcafee to scan for what
was causing this problem, but nothing was found. After that, I tried to scan with SUPERantispyware, but it only picked up cookies, nothing

Components disabled when Mcafee disables itself:
Real-time scanning
Spyware and potentially unwanted program scanning
IM scanning
Script scanning
Buffer overflow protection

Screenshot of Mcafee disabling itself

EDIT: Nevermind, apparently this issue on the game is known, due to its security system being bugged. If you can, please close this topic.
