i am using win XP SP3, installed Mcafee last week, after whenever i try to completely scan my PC. It automatically shutsdown.
Did you previously have any security software installed prior to McAfee?
It will also help us to know what operating system you are using, what browser you use , the type of internet connection, amount of ram
Any message ie goes to blue sceen etc
Need PC model ie is it a dell?
after reading few similar posts i have installed "super antispyware" and uninstalled it, currently using windows XP sp3, browsing via firefox 4 & IE 6, i am having ADSL connection with 256kbps plan and 1gb of ramon 4/23/11 7:31:12 PM CDT
PC just shutdowns no error msg.
It's not dell.
McAfee needs an updated Internet Explorer to function properly so I would highly recommend you update it to at least Version 8 as I do not believe even Microsoft offers support anymore for IE6. As far as your preference for a browser you can continue to use Firefox but again your IE is outdated and this may be causing you your issue.
Is the option selected I am trying to see if the , if any, BSOD message is set to show.
Does this happen if Mcafee uninstalled?
What network driver have you? atheros?
Update IE as Tom saidMessage was edited by: Peacekeeper on 24/04/11 10:55:31 AM
I will definately update IE to version 8, then will let you know
i have already unchecked the automatic restart option under advanced settings, it does not show any BSOD error, what i am trying to say is it takes around 2-3 secs and PC is turned off, (i think hard disk stops responding).
Ok that shots down I thought I had. Try updating IE...
