Re: Annoying Mcafee Icon keeps reappearing again after latest patch!

Jump to solution

mitchstewart - the fix is being tested and retested as we speak and should be released in just a few days.

indinfer:  yes the CPU/Memory usage issue was supposed to have been solved some time back.  Some people may still experience it however if they get their software from a 3rd party source such as their ISP or Dell for instance, because those 3rd parties do their own testing and may or may not pass on any fixes that come down the pipeline.   That's unfortunate for some I realise but that's the way it is.

I don't know how this small thread got broken off the main one, otherwise you would have been updated with the news the patch is being tested.

This is many others, I am annoyed to the point that I am writing on this forum and calling into your hotline.  I really like a clean desktop.  A McAfee icon is in my taskbar when my computer starts up, it is not I need another icon for quick access.

The fix for this issue is rolling out as we speak but may take several days / weeks to be applied to every customer. It was a bug that we've worked hard to fix, not a conspiracy to market to, annoy, or lose our valued customers. This thread is being locked due to spam complaints.

For up to date information, see Issue Update: McAfee desktop icon cannot be permanantly deleted.

The release as shown in the link below will take a few days to reach all servers in each case.

This is per the Forum Administrator.
