I expect the fix will arrive in beta for we beta testers to check out in about a week or 10 days.
Update appreciated. Thanks. GB.
Fingers crossed That comment was worked out on the end of june release and they/we need a week to test it.
So please do not hold me to it
The Fix !
I downloaded the latest automatic updated version of McAfee Internet security last night.
On closing down, there was for the first time for weeks NO ERROR MESSAGE!
I hope that is it.Message was edited by: davideo0 on 6/19/10 1:41:42 AM CDT
Could it be? Is it possible? Did we finally get it? After the latest update from McAfee late last night and shutting my computer down for the third time, I have not got the dreaded McSvHost error. Thanks McAfee for letting us all know that you were sending the fix (I hope)!
I am keeping my fingers crossed that the latest update was actually the fix and not just some coincidence that I am not getting the error.
I still won't be renewing with you when my subscription expires in October.
I think not (but don't despair) ! Based on Peacekeeper's last response of June 15th, a "fix" was expected for "testing" within a week or so; can't imagine they would have pushed it out "without" testing, based on what's happened to-date. This "error" disappears "sporadically (as has been experienced by many contributors to this post, including myself). I'm only responding to your post so you aren't "surprised, disappointed, really " !###&&&$$$@@@ off " when it returns (if only temporarily, we hope - end-June target resolution). GB
just a by line has anybody received compensation for the original crash yet ?
Nothing my end My xp test box only gets teh popup 3 times in 33 boots so far. I keep a count.
If they follow testing rules I would expect the fix to be beta tested next week but that is my idea not mcafee's statement. Will recheck in our call monday
If you mean the 5958 dat issue someone posted that they got 2 years added to their subscription. i hear the cash part is slower as it needs to be manually vetted but it is coming.
Just checked my account and 2 years extension has been added for the dat error.
Thank you Somer
