Re: McAfee Service Host Problem

I think I found where this latest ( DOS box pop up) pathetic Mcafee problem is being disscussed.

I am totaly disgusted with Mcafee at this point

Re: McAfee Service Host Problem

Ah ok What security center version is that with?

I have asked Haydon to add this to our mod call agenda on Monday.

Re: McAfee Service Host Problem

Fantastic! Another McAfee restart update and another error, this is becoming way way past a joke now. First we have the service host problem, which I understand is still not fixed (apart from the turning netguard off work around) after 2 months! Then we get the re-apearing desktop icon and now this DOS pop up box. I'm really looking forward to future restart updates now to see what other errors/problems McAfee can cause!

Big thanks to user delclemons post number 35 in the thread below for the work around for fixing the annoying DOS prompt box.

Re: McAfee Service Host Problem

The popup box is in our agenda to discuss tomorrow. What is strange with all of this is except for the icon on the desktop none of these issues are affecting my family's 9 Pcs . There is something common that is causing this.

I have added all issues to our agenda to get an update so will be a long call.

Re: McAfee Service Host Problem

Is it just me, or are there are lot of meetings/phone calls that seem to be going on, but absolutely no feedback from them.

Come on McAfee....what's going on?

Re: McAfee Service Host Problem

WOW ! Seems like my original thread has taken on a life of it's own. So what is McAfee actually doing about it ?

Re: McAfee Service Host Problem

Sorry this thread slipped by me.

There is a cause for this issue that seems to have fixed 12 users in another thread. They all used alcohol 120% burning software so if you do remove it via its own uninstall link in the programs list reboot and see if that helps. Download another burning software for teh time being till Mcafee and alcohol sort this out.Mcafee have been told about the clash. There are, however, around 5 users for whom no issue/cause has been found and Mcafee is chasing logs from some of them.

Re: McAfee Service Host Problem

Hi,

I for one don't use alcohol 120% burning software.

I do have MagicDisc (http://www.magiciso.com/tutorials/miso-magicdisc-overview.htm?=mdisc_hlp106) installed but it is 99.99% inactive.

Re: McAfee Service Host Problem

Was it ever installed? Alcohol 120% that is?  Would you be willing to work with a tech to get more logs?
