I am also having the same problem,

I have had some malware(s) that I THINK i have removed but not sure, however some of the effects are happening still..

This seems to be a clever programme as when opening macafee it shows below

however when you go into the options it shows that it is disabled:

as described by Kingpicollo when you click to turn it on it instanstly goes to off. Quite concerned about the fact that Macafee seems powerless to whatever has infected it and now seems to be able to change how it displays and works without giving any indication that it's been affected.

Hello and welcome to BleepingComputer, first off lets start by downloading malwarebytes antimalware from http://www.malwarebytes.org/ download it and update the database and run a full scan. Once its done post the log here and then we'll see what happens next. Also just a quick warning; These Instructions are for the thread poster only! Using instructions that are given to someone else can be dangerous and could result in damage to the system. If anyone reading this besides the thread poster has the same issue I suggest you start your own thread instead of following instructions that are not for you.
