Since installing Spy Sweeper and EWIDO, McAfee Virus Scan and Personal Firewall Plus do not load according to the White 'M' with red/black background. By double clicking the icon in the tray it opens McAfee Security Center and I can enable the applications. Problem is I have my tray set to 'always hide' all icons except my CPU usage app. So, if I don't check the McAfee icon before I go on the Web these two applications may be disabled. I have caught myself on the Web a few times without McAFee Virus Scan enabled. So, I am thinking that loading the McAfee stuff first it might fix the problem. One big flaw there is I am not sure what is disabling the McAfee stuff.

Thank you.
