My college network requires Bradford Persistent Agent and Mcafee Virus Software 8.7i. The Bradford Persistent Agent basically checks to make sure Mcafee is running and updated, and reports this status to the network. If it is configured incorrectly, I cannot access the internet. Right now, I am running off of the device network, (iPod/iPhone WiFi) which is considerably slower and doesn't enable me to use my Ethernet cable.
With Windows Vista, everything was configured correctly. After my upgrade to Windows 7, Bradford Persistent Agent isn't registering the fact that Mcafee is installed and updated. Also, Windows Security Center isn't properly registering Mcafee as well, it knows that it is installed but can't read information reports from it.
I have tried running the install files and the programs themselves in several configurations of compatibility modes, to no avail. I think this is a problem with Mcafee. Is there a solution?
Solution (for me):
- Windows Button -> type "services" -> click "services" icon at top of start menu
- Navigate to Bradford Persistant Agent -> select Restart Service
- Bradford Agent now recognized Mcafee (in my situation)
