Both changes are mandatory to maintain a high level of security to our systems.

Few users may notice the status of McAfee (right-hand side in the task bar) changing from ‘OK’ to ‘Issue detected’ during the installation process. This message can be ignored and should return to normal after the installation process has completed.

Apologies for any inconvenience caused.
