This is one of the major flaws with McAfee Total Protected which, as of Aug 2009, still remains to be an issue for many owners. There was some conversation among McAfee forum administrators that the ability to manage the “Trusted Programs” list would be added (back) to their Total Protection suite, prior to the release of Microsoft IE 8. Obviously, McAfee did not keep that promise.
Without this ability, McAfee *will* mark legitimate applications (files / programs) as POTENTIALLY UNWANTED PROGRAMS (PUP) and thereby quarantine them … rendering your apps useless.
