Which Version?
by Grif Thomas Forum moderator / August 24, 2006 5:56 AM PDT
In reply to: (NT) any one

The most recent versions of McAfee retail Virus Scan, such as VS 8,9, and 10, unfortunately, do not log scans..Sorry...

Users have griped about the lack of a scan log but McAfee has refused to include it in recent versions.. Virus Scan 11 just came out. I'm not sure whether this new one has a scan log or not...

Hope this helps.

I See Where You Got A Little Help At McAfee..

As Peter described, you can see some of the previous scan data immediately after opening the next day.. Unfortunately, as we both stated, there aren't any full scan logs for you to review though..

Take care.

reasonably recent(to limit build up) entries an important part of my AVG service for comparison purposes and as a hint to a possible source of a found problem (if any). JMHO. Happy

I Agree Entirely..

Unfortunately, McAfee hasn't seen fit to enable that option on their retail versions... Corporate versions such as VirusScan 8.0i are able to view logs..just not retail..

Not a good thing.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
