Issues with McAfee AntiVirus (BT Net Protect Plus) on Windows

If you are running McAfee’s AntiVirus software, you may need to disable ‘Real Time Scanning’ or the install will fail. Please note that this only applies to application updates (.air files) and not database updates (.hqu files).

The steps for doing this are as follows:

1) Launch McAfee IS from the start menu, or from the icon in the system tray.
2) Click on “Schedule and run scans” in the Virus and Spyware Protection window
3) Click on “Real-Time Scanning” box from the list
4) Select the “Turn Off” button.
5) Select the minimum time (which is 15 minutes) from the dropdown box
6) Click the “Done” button

Don’t close down McAfee at this point as you will want to re-enable it as soon as possible and usually the installation is done well within the 15 minute window.

7) Install the update file in HymnQuest, or allow the online update to run

8) Once the update has completed, go back to McAfee and select the “Turn On” button to re-enable the real-time scanning.
9) Once re-enabled, hit the “Done” button and close McAfee.
