McAfee asks for restart. Every. Freaking. Day.

Jump to solution

Seriously. I restart it before I go to bed by clicking the Restart Now.

When I get home from work, bam, there pops the dialog box again.

It's been like this for about a week now. Every day, new update, need to restart.

Good lord can this please be fixed?

Hi there,

Can you please navigate to C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\Components and rename the file Scriptff.dll  to Scriptffold.dll and restart  the PC. The abnormal restart promt shouldn’t occur then.

Regards,

This looks as if something isn't installing properly.  What McAfee installation have you got? And have you run MVT to check that everything is installed?

But what does it says? The reason for restarting? Maybe there is some unresolved problem, malware that it can't remove?
