Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

Does anyone know of a solution to this problem?


I installed McAfee on a fresh install of XP, but received the error message about "McSvHost.exe" on shutdown.  I have used McAfee since they first came out without any problems, but the last two versions have caused problems.  Last Year's version forced me to contact Tech Support, which resulted in hanging up on the technician whose only solution was to "reinstall the product."  The problem was corrected with an update.  This time, I will avoid contacting the Tech Support.


Also, is there anyway to remove the Desktop Icon without editting my registry?  I think it is completely unacceptable for McAfee to force their icon onto my desktop without my permission.  Shame on McAfee!!!

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

Hey Peacekeeper.  I'm having the exact same issue as well.  Started with 2009, completely uninstalled, and since installing 2010, I get the error on shutdown.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

Same problem here on a Laptop that I have been asked to repair since the owner installed 2010 Update and renewed her subscription. If she's stuck with this for another year, it'll be a shame if I have to remove it and sell her something else instead. Dell PC running XP SP3, nothing fancy running at all. I've used the removal tool to remove all traces of old installation and reinstalled using her subscription on the Mcafee website. Virtual Technician mentions an inf file missing in the Firewall programme (other threads cover that one, still no solution) and I get this shutdown error as well.........................

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

As I said Mcafee is contacting some users in this thread . there will be a fix or a reason for the issue soon but not all are getting this so something is the catalyst to cause it. I have been using 2010 since beta version day 1 and have not seen this issue. It was there on startup for the first release but was fixed in release 2 back in October.

Re the desktop icon should be fixed soon as well

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

I have just installed Internet Security 2010 using Windows XP and guess what never had a problem with 2009 but the same shutdown error message 'click ok to terminate' like everyone else is getting on the shutdown screen (cannot therefore do a screen dump).  Just to let you know my PC does shut down after waiting a little longer even without clicking ok to terminate program. Judging by the number of posts to this problem,  I won't even bother doing a reinstall and I also did use the unistallation tool to completely remove 09 version. Come on McAfee, when will there be a fix available for this in the updates?

Does this mean also that because 2010 is buggy, am I open to internet security threats?

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

Only for statistics, my 3 PC have the same issue at shoutdown.

And more: McSvHost.exe uses a hight level of resources when we are navigating (40-90%).

And in one of these 3 PC, mchshield.exe uses ups to 99% of CPU when I work with videos. A singular issue, without solution yet.

I am thinking seriously go back to McAfee 9...
