Why am I receiving "Software Upgrade" msgs from McAfee please?
I have been using SHAW SECURE for my home PC security needs.
Has Shaw added McAfee to Shaw Secure please?
Thank you for your time.
Sorry. Been out off office for past few days.
This popup window in the bottom right corner regarding an update that is requesting a reboot to become active. This is normal with McAfee, and appears on average once every 2-4 weeks. Daily updates like Virus Definitions and Spam Definitions do not require reboots to become active and will silently occur in the background. But changes to the actual software services/components do require system reboots to become active.
Shaw Secure is McAfee's software with a Shaw logo in some places.
McAfee replaced F-Secure for Shaw Secure a couple years ago
I noticed you have "Guru" under your avatar.. does that mean I can seek reliable tech support from you or should I wait until I reach the Shaw help desk tomorrow? Better to be safe than sorry I say.
I know a lot, I don't know nearly as much about McAfee as I do about about F-Secure, I hate McAfee to be honest, I uninstalled it shortly after Shaw launched it
But Shaw Secure is done by McAfee, so, run a full-scan with your Shaw Secure before doing anything else, let it scan and check your computer for 'bad' files, see if it comes up with anything, then you will know if your system is clean.
ss_phil if he comes on should have a definitive answer, or talk to chat support tomorrow
Thank you for that info. I see a red "shield" for the McAfee logo on my "Software Upgrade" msg. Wondering if I am to heed it and do a Restart as it suggests.
Yeah, sounds right
While I have your attention (or so it seems ... ) I'd like to explain a wi-fi connectivity issue I'm having ... with my iPhone... actually, I did reach a tech support person at Linksys and will watch the "video" he instructed me to watch. If I'm still stuck I will return here. Why trouble anyone if I am capable of solving it. Cheerio now. Thanks a bunch.
I remember iPhones having WiFi issues depending on the software version number, so check for an iOS update first
Sounds good. If you're using a Linksys router and experiencing wifi intermittency then it's probably best to go through their videos first.
All the options for WiFi channels, etc. will differ from router to router to wifi modem.
kevinds knows his stuff and sounds like he's on the right track here.
From the sounds of it you may already have the McAfee version installed (red shield on your desktop/taskbar). All the old F-Secure keys have been expired for months.
Just a thought, but you may want to check the system clock (bottom right corner in most cases). Double-click and make sure the date and time are both accurate. McAfee uses this clock to check if it's up to date.
