Anti-virus software may indicate that the McAfee Agent file FramePkg.exe is suspicious and/or prevent it from execution.


McAfee Agent installation is blocked by anti-virus software.


Endpoint Security Dynamic Application Containment generates events for the file FramePkg.exe because it was contained due to "unknown" reputation as indicated via Threat Intelligence.


Anti-virus software that takes action on files based on reputation, or because a file is unsigned, may hinder the installation of the McAfee Agent when deployed via ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO). The file FramePkg.exe is unsigned by design. This file is unique to each ePO environment, and while it contains signed binaries that it installs, the EXE or wrapper itself cannot be signed.


Exclude the file FramePkg.exe from inspection by anti-virus software.
