These instructions will help you install McAfee VirusScan on your Windows 8 computer. You'll need to restart your computer; be sure to save your work before you install VirusScan.
The UD version of VirusScan will automatically scan your computer for viruses every Wednesday at approximately noon. If your computer isn't on at that time, or if you'd like to scan more frequently, follow the link for your operating system in the menu on the right.
Your computer will automatically check for updates to VirusScan every day at 3:00 p.m. VirusScan will also do a full monthly scan on the first Monday of the month at approximately 11 a.m.
After you install VirusScan, VShield will automatically run while your computer is on. You'll need to disable VShield to run Scandisk or Disk Defragmenter. You'll also need to disable it to install some software titles—refer to the installation instructions when installing new software to determine whether you should disable VShield.
