After Auto-Update and Restart of Windows the network stack is blocked and i can not open Antivirus Plus 2012

Hello

Yesterday I worked on my windows 7 ultimate as usual. All worked fine. Then my McAfee Antivirus Plus 2012 showed a window that tells me to reboot my windows. After reboot, i cannot open IExplore, Fifrefox, etc. It looks like the network stack or a urgent windows component is blocked. The network is disabled. Other applications like notepad, microsoft office works but i can also not open McAfee Antivirus. So i started windows in save mode and then i uninstalled antivirus and after reboot into normal windows mode i also run the MCPR.exe to completely remove antivirus. Then after the next reboot of windows in normal mode i newly installed McAfee Antivirus Plus 2012. Now, antivurs runs well. But after a new reboot of windows i have the same problem as at the begin. What can I do?

I assume you have the builds as mentioned here. MY wife's PC works fine so the update is clashing with somethiong either software or hardware that is installed on the PC..

Try resetting firewall to defaults then run MVt teh virtual technician here

If that does not help contact support and complain as the more complaints the faster they will more. I have contacted my tech contacts as well. . Best to post further posts in that thread as you seem to have the same issue.
