    Can McAfee Virusscan enterprise 8.7i schedule a scan without ePolicy Orchestrator?
    I finally got it the way I want it except the virusscan console Full Scan and on-demand
    scan properties have the schedule button grayed-out. I only see Administrator from the
    Windows XP w/ sp3 login screen in safe mode and it has no password. I didn't get ePolicy
    Orchestrator with my McAfee install and there is no Hub or Server here so I guess I am
    the Administrator. I set up this machine and gave the user I set it up with administrator
    privileges, This is XP Home so I have no users and groups button in my Manage MSC.
    Am I out of luck, or will I just have to either get ePolicy Orchestrator or run on-demand
    scans manually, when I am about to be away from the machine? Thx paj692

    I installed McAfee Enterprise 8.7i on my XP Pro (w/ SP3) and ran the setup using "Run
    as" Administrator. I had to set up a password for the Administrator account so the
    program would run, but with XP Pro, that is no problem. The schedule button is not greyed
    out like it is on the XP Home (w/ sp3) system using the exact same installer. I did not
    install it using "Run As" the Administrator Account. I'd like to, but the problem is this; I
    can't run the installer from safe mode since the installer service is not running and I get
    this error when trying to run in regular mode (Run As Administrator). Unable to log on:
    Logon failure: user account restriction. Possible reasons are blank password (That's not
    it!), logon hour restrictions, (probably not it) or policy restriction has been enforced. Any
    body know a work around for this. It would be good to know how to run something in XP
    Home as the Administrator without having to go into safe mode. paj692
