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 pointMessage was edited by: answer7 on 1/14/12 5:04:00 PM CST
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.
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.
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.
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.
