Re: McAffee Service Host stopped working

Depends what it is. When I did that search (I was looking for the Dr Watson output) I found quite a lot of files created and modified just in one day. What's its filename?

Re: McAffee Service Host stopped working

Only one of those : McAfee cycles through them to add output messages so not necessarily the 002 log. The current log will have today's timestamped messages at the end of the file.

I thought there would be a file generated by Windows, since it's usually Windows which pulls the plug on mcsvhost. Nothing in the Windows directory or in whichever Vista directory corresponds to "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft"?

Re: McAffee Service Host stopped working

I have sent to the Microsoft communities about  the error messages and asked if there is a log and where the log is. As soon as I have an answer I will let you know.

Something I was just made aware of about an email making the rounds with an enclosed virus Here is a part of the email:

You should be alert during the next few days. Do not open any message with an attachment


entitled POSTCARD FROM HALLMARK , regardless of who sent it to you.


It is a virus which opens A POSTCARD IMAGE, which 'burns' the whole hard disc C of your computer.


This virus will be received from someone who has your e -mail address in his/her contact list.

It goes on by saying that it was discovered McAffee  yesterday. I don't know if you are aware if this.

I am hesitant to go to these websites but it seems it is the one. Has McAffee got it in the virus definitions. Can it elminate it?

Re: McAffee Service Host stopped working

Those sites all shown green by Mcafee so safe. It really is a chain email frightening you to pass it on. It is not containing a virus as far as I see.

read the sites I posted
