Haven't had an update will ask. Have you been using registry cleaners?

Re: Latest update to Total Protection 2010 eliminates firewall settings and gets a "failure to create IDispatch" after PC scan

Peacekeeper,

and everybody,

sorry for the waiting but I've not checked the forum until now..

Actually, I'm using two registry cleaner, that are Piriform CCleaner and Glary Utilities.

The Piriform's software doesn't create any problem about McAfee and IDIspatch error. So you may run it without particular settings.

On the contrary, to use Glary Utilities you have to set the exclusion of the following key register:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\TskTCShm.CoMcTaskScheduler\CLSID\

In this way, you will not encounter any more the IDispatch error and everything works fine..!

I suggest to use Glary Utilities. You can find it at the following link: http://www.glarysoft.com/

Now, let me explain how to set the exclusion of that registry key, as regards Glary Utilities.

1. Download and install the software. Run it.

2. In the "1-Click Maintenance" menu, select all the fields and click on "Scan for Issues".

3. Wait for the end of the scan.

4. In the first field, that's Registry Cleaner" click on "Show Details".

5. Search this registry key: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\TskTCShm.CoMcTaskScheduler\CLSID\

6. Right click on it and set it to always exclude. Close this Details window.

7. Now you're back to main menu "1-Click Maintenance", and click on "Repair Problems".

8, Well done, finish.

Please let me know if you still have problems.

Hope it will help..

Hope it will help..

Hi,

All reg cleaners are BAD for every PC - my advise do not use it.

I think in that kind of scenario:

*Make new test account and try isntalling the software again - that should solve the problem.

Hope someone tries that and udpate if that works - for me and others it did

I agree, they do more harm than good.

I uninstalled/reinstalled McAfee Antivirus Plus, and the IDispatch problem disappeared.

No it hasn't.

After rebooting and scanning again, the IDispatch problem has reappeared. I spoke to soon.

That's good.  Now try to resist the temptation to run registry cleaners and/or optimizers.

Good luck.

Re: Latest update to Total Protection 2010 eliminates firewall settings and gets a "failure to create IDispatch" after PC scan

I do use Glary Utitilities.  I did a restore to a point before I had installed McAfee (which was only a week ago after I dumped Trend Micro), and the restore to an earlier point seemed to take care of the problem.  I guess I won't use registery cleaners (I am a novice in any event and don't really understand the benefit (but the harm seems more clear)).  However, can I use CCCleaner to clean up cookies or is there a straight "remove cookies and temp files" program that does not mess with registery?

Thanks for the help board.

CCleaner is good but as with all those applications, you have tio know what you are doing.

The OS has the regular cleanup tools in Control Panel/System and Maintenance - varies slightly from OS to OS.

You can clear cookies, history etc. using the various browser's own Tools.

Temp files can be cleared by going into Start/Rin and type in temp and hit the Enter key.  Then click Edit/Select All, then hit Shift/Delete simultaneously and most will go after a prompt or two.  Some stay, that's normal.

Repeat by entering %temp% in the Run box and most of your temps are deleted easily.

I had this problem and spent many hours over several days with support trying to get it solved. The only registry cleaner I had used was the McAfee cleaner that came with my subscription.  I had at least 4 long chats with support and one long phone call - once they blamed my hard disk and I then spent hours confirming it wasn't the issue. The problem was finally resolved, but now - just two weeks later - it is back. I didn't even run the disk cleaner during this time.  I just got the same old IDspatch error and then checked my firewall settings and even though both mcafee and windows security center reported that it was on, it was indeed off again.

I am giving up. If I can't trust my virus protection and firewall, then what good are they? Even though I've paid up for the next 10 months, I have uninstalled McAffee and am going with the protection that comes with Windows Vista - which is free.
