Using McAfee VirusScan Professional Edition Version 8.0


In response to numerous customer requests, Pelco has developed and tested a plan for implementing McAfee VirusScan Professional Edition
antivirus software. To provide an additional degree of protection against viruses, McAfee can now be installed, configured, and activated on
each DX8000 digital video recorder (DVR) in your organization. To ensure correct and effective installation and use of McAfee antivirus software
on the DX8000, read and follow the steps presented in each section of this document completely. This manual includes the following topics:

IMPORTANT: New viruses are created every day. To remain effective, your McAfee antivirus software must be active and must updated
on a regular basis. Pelco is not responsible for the failure of an individual or organization to update antivirus software and virus definition
files. Scanning the hard disk system for viruses while the DX8000 is recording may result in lost video data. Virus scanning should only be
performed manually while the DX8000 is not in a record, search, or playback mode. Pelco is not responsible for damage or loss to
equipment, software, video, or other data resulting from computer viruses. Please refer to the Importamt Security Information for System
Administrators document for other important information about protecting your system.

INSTALLING AND UNINSTALLING MCAFEE VIRUS SCAN PROFESSIONAL EDITION


There are a few items of importance that you should understand before installing, using, and uninstalling McAfee VirusScan Professional Edition
on the DX8000 server, and also before using the automatic update feature.

Installing McAfee VirusScan Professional Edition: The initial installation of McAfee VirusScan Professional Edition is easy. After the
installation process finishes, you are prompted to restart the DX8000 to complete the installation process.

Using the McAfee automatic update feature: By default, the McAfee automatic update feature is turned off when the software is installed.
You must manually turn automatic update on. In this case, the first time that automatic update executes, the McAfee software requires that
the DX8000 be restarted. McAfee displays the restart prompt over the DX8000 video screen. The restart prompt does not timeout; you must
manually address the restart prompt to remove it. McAfee software displays subsequent automatic update notifications and advises that a
restart of the DX8000 is not required.

Uninstalling McAfee VirusScan Professional Edition: McAfee VirusScan software is easy to uninstall, but some components are not
removed.
You must manually remove left-over McAfee files from the registry and hard drive. Some McAfee file names are not easily recognized
and you have to perform a tedious search of the registry for the left-over McAfee files.

The McAfee icon is very difficult to remove from the notification area of the Windows task bar.

McAfee will not reinstall properly after it is uninstalled. The McAfee installation process displays a message that the components for
Active Shield are missing and that you must reinstall the software or not boot into safe mode.

To install McAfee antivirus software:


1. Exit the DX8000 application if it is running, and return to the Windows operating system. Refer to the Installation Manual or Operations and
Programming Manual for instructions on exiting the DX8000.
NOTE: You must have Administrator User access to exit to the Windows operating system. Refer to the Operation and Programming
Manual for information on user security levels.

DISABLING MCAFEE AUTO SCAN


Performing a virus scan with McAfee antivirus software requires significant resources. Both the CPU and the hard disk subsystem of the DX8000
can become overburdened if the antivirus software begins a scan while the DX8000 is in record or playback mode. To ensure that the DX8000
operates at optimum performance levels, and to safeguard the video recording function, the McAfee antivirus auto-scan feature must be
disabled.
IMPORTANT: Scanning the hard disk system for viruses while the DX8000 is recording may result in lost video data. Pelco is not
responsible for any video or data lost during a virus scanning operation.

CAUTION: If your antivirus software is controlled from a remote server, make sure that scheduled or automatic virus scanning is disabled
for all DX8000 DVRs on your network. If scheduled virus scanning must be implemented, the recording features of the DX8000 must be
disabled during the scanning period. Refer to the Operations and Programming manual that came with your DVR for information on
configuring recording schedules for the DX8000. Consult your network administrator for information regarding your network's antivirus
software configuration. Refer to the manual that came with your McAfee antivirus software for additional information on configuring
McAfee Enterprise antivirus software.
To disable the McAfee auto scan feature:
1. Exit the DX8000 application, if it is running, and return to the Windows operating system. Refer to the Installation Manual or Operations
and Programming Manual for instructions on exiting the DX8000.
NOTE: You must have Administrator User access to exit to the Windows operating system. Refer to the Operation and Programming
manual for information on user security levels.

only be performed manually while the DX8000 is not in record, search, or playback modes. Pelco is not responsible for any video or data lost
during a virus scanning operation.
To perform a manual virus scan of all hard disk drives:
