Are you sure you have no other Anti Virus installed/running - like Ad-Aware perhaps ?

Can you manually update McAfee (BT NetProtect Plus)? I just ran mvt (McAfee Virtual Technician) and it requested an update (which I did manually)and then to restart computer. It reloaded mvt and did a scan bringing up auto update requires fixing and proceeded to do this and confirmed this had been done. I suspect my cleaning software either Ccleaner or more likely Advanced System Care had switched off automatic updates.
