Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

Hi all,

Since Somer kindly released the test fix version on my laptop I have not had any error on shut down.

Until last night.

My Total protection told me computer was at risk and to run a full scan. I completed this and there was one update to run too.

All protection came back - PC was protected again etc.

Then upon shut down I got a slightly different error McSV Host

I didn't get the full text but it said 'the exception priviledged instruction occurred 00x000x0e...... (Don't think the number sequencing is right)

showed two options - one was 'click to debug program'

I didn't get the message down in time as the pc went off.

Any advice please.

My security version is 10.5.194.

Angie you still are not up to the 195 version what is your firewall version? I would assume that after the update something happened to cause it again but it will not reoccur till the next update. Unsure here though.

Thought so wait and see what happens when it goes to 195 and 135 and if issue returns.

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown


Just wondering if anyone can help me, I'm based in the UK and I'm still getting the McSvhost.exe error on shutdown. I've checked some of the version numbers of the programs in my Security Centre and some of them seem to be really old versions and have not been updated for a while.

Security Centre
Version: 10.0
Build: 10.0.580
Update: 09/05/2010

Virus Scan
Version: 14.0
Build: 14.0.309
Update: 23/08/2010

Personal Firewall
Version: 11.0
Build: 11.0.378
Update: 09/05/2010

Why is Security Centre, Firewall, and Virus Scan, so far behind and not been updated to the latest versions ???

Cheers for any help !

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown


  Let me explain you ,McAfee updates only the "Virus Scan " every 4 hours which is called "DAT" and todays DAT is 6083 and it changes everyday ,that is the reason why Virus scan update shows 23.8.2010.

And i wanna tell you that your McAfee programs are not OUTDATED !!!

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

Ok 1st thought are you getting Mcafee from mcafee direct or through an ISP or hardware supplier like Dell etc? WE heard from 1 of the mcafee techs in our mod phone call that some are still on the10.0 version and are only now testing the10 .5 version.

If it is through mcafee you can get the latest version for certian via uninstalling mcafee and reinstalling it. Ok takes about 20 minutes (I did it to test another issue 2 days ago.)

I'm still on Firewall 131 and Security Center 189, the error has gone since Sunday (about 12 shutdowns).
