Add me also to this error on shutdown.
The 2010 install caused me so much grief last week (BSOD, etc), that I started last night with a CLEAN (fresh install) after running Dell Diagnostics for a day with NO hardware errors.
XP Pro SP3 - fully patched
Only installed Virus Scan, Firewall, and SiteAdvisor (don't need parental control, spam, on-line backup junk).
Nothing else "trick" has been installed yet (no drivecrypt or threatfire or multimedia, etc). Just trying to get through this upgrade before I spend days getting my computer back to the way I liked it.
Should have stayed with 2009Message was edited by: Geode on 2/19/10 2:32:19 PM CST
What you have mentioned is correct. This is a new service integrated in MSC 2010. In 2009 it was a independent process named "McMscSvc.exe”". Now it has been changed to a dll which is hosted by McSvHost.exe.
Users who all are facing this issue please let me know the following details.
Please reply me with following details. If possible get a screen shot of message as well.
Ok here's the info you wanted:
I installed this from mcafee.com on my account page.
1GB (actually 2GB as of yesterday)
Absolutely not! I'm a nazi when it comes to my msconfig/startup. There are literally 4 items max.
Also noteworthy, this occured on another laptop yesterday. So this is 2 fresh installs downloaded from mcafee.com account page. Same problem. Both XP Pro machines (one tablet, one not. they are both i945GM running T2050 1.66GHz CPU, but all other hardware is different). Both machines are very clean fresh images, with minimal services running (indexing off, themes off, remote registry off, help & support off, fast user switching off, error reporting off) and extra components removed.
Thanks for the quick response. Let me discuss this issue and I'll get back to you by Monday.
One more question?
Running Windows XP SP3 - recently McAfee Total Protection was updated to the 2010 version and now everytime I shutdown my PC, I get a dialog box saying McSvHost.exe can't access a reference in memory (or something to that effect)."
Did you uninstall 2009 version completely before installing 2010?
Neither of mine were updates from 2009, both were fresh installs with no previous mcafee. I think someone else that posted was an upgrade from 2009, but not me. Cheers
I am sorry. I thought it was Graffin .
I'll get back to you on Monday with a work around.
Thanks in advance...
I installed after running the clean-up tool and the pre-install tool. Only Virus Scan and Firewall were selected. I've done this twice now.
RAM = 1GB
I keep startups to a minimum - I think about 4 or 5.
Can't get a snapshot because the machine is shutting down but the fault window is entitled "McSvHost - Application Error" with content "The instruction at 6280436a referenced memory at 07..... " - can't read any more in the time available. The instruction address is always the same but the memory address varies somewhat after the first 2 digits.
From the posts I can see that the problem is complicated and Pc needs to be checked by a technician. Please boot your PC into safe mode with networking and contact us through McAfee chat support.
Sorry for the slack reply... been away for a couple of days.
It downloaded and installed itself... I didn't have any choice!
Obviously installed over MSC 2009... but I only have Security Center, VirusScan, Personal Firewall and AntiSpam installed
Only the bare minimum... only McAfee, nVidia video & audio drivers (5 icons appear in my system tray)
As i've said in my opening post... the Application Error dialog box appears almost every time on Shutdown... if you click to close it, or just wait about 10-15 seconds, the computer will shutdown anyway. So, it's more of a nag or annoyance than anything, but it would be great if it was fixed and didn't happen!Message was edited by: Graffin75 on 2/22/10 8:17:31 AM CST
