OK might be same issue as here


and here


The issue is being looked into 1 thing that works and this only for some is disable netguard setting in the firewall setting. This only a thought as it worked in 2 out of 20 cases.

Another thought is any1 got a Hp with HP cloud software installed. If so uninstall it it clashes with Mcafee.

Re: mchost application error

Uninstalling Alcohol 120% did indeed solve the errors.

At first I thought that Alcohol 120% wasn't installed on my pc. I had already removed it using the Windows add/remove programs long time ago.

The sollution was uninstalling it using the uninstaller in de /program files/alcohol directory.

I cleaned the registry afterwords and the problems are gone now.

Re: mchost application error

I uninstalled latest version of alcohol and no more errors here too. mchost and sync errors are all gone.

  • using windows xp sp3
  • using mcafee internet security latest version with updates of today

When I reinstalled alcohol 120 I get the mchost error again. Confirmed that alcohol is colliding with the latest mcafee update since december 2011. Have been using this alcohol version for more than 8 months without problem until dec 2011 mcafee update.
