malwarebyte picked up by mcafee virus scan


Recommended Posts

I installed malwarebytes' anti-malware support and now I am getting access protection log notices from my McAfee Virus Scan. Here are some examples from the log:

Is this saying that your program is, itself, some type of malware? Why is the program trying to modify McAfee files?
