A background process for the McAfee Security Suite software, this application facilitates the integration of McAfee antivirus and network protection capabilities with the Windows Security Center. It works with On-Access Scan, which monitors for virus and malware threats in real-time. It starts automatically with Windows and displays an alert as soon as one is detected. It automatically attempts to delete any virus, malware threat, or intrusion. If it cannot, the threat is quarantined. Based in Santa Clara, California, McAfee was founded in 1987. McAfee is best known for its McAfee Total Security protection suite and its various components. Acquired by Intel Corporation, McAfee will soon be distributed as Intel Security. www.neuber.com/taskmanager/process/mcdetect.exe.html

I know that if you search mcafee it does not bring this up and until it is deleted it will say that mcafee security center is still installed. I was not able to install another virus program due to this until I got rid of it. McAfee didn't even know how to do it! Kathi
gehört zum nervenden Mcaffe Security Center, was sich penetrant i.d. Systemstrg implentiert und man nicht mehr los zu werden scheint Frank S.
