    I am using my Fathers PC at the moment and there seems to be a slight problem with his McAfee Antivirus. On the taskbar near the clock the McAfee logo which normally shows up as red has turned black and when I place the mouse over it it says that the virus scan is disable. Now when I go into the McAfee Security Centre it says that virus scan is currently protecting your computer from viruses and shows a green light. I've never had or seen this problem before.

    That is a long standing McAfee problem. I downloaded multiple ‘fixes’ from their website, and none worked.

    In the end, they told me I had to get rid of Adaware Plus. I declined. And for some reason, just recently and inexplicably, the McAfee “M” started coming up red again.

    If you have Windows XP, you can configure it so that Windows will let you know ‘for real’ when your antivirus is not working and you can ignore the black “M”.
