Re: McAfee update causes blue screen crash?

No I running Windows 7 64bit Home Premium on an IntelCeleron CPU 900 @2.2 GHz with 3GB RAM, Mobile Intel 4 Series Express Chipset.  As I said, problem appears to have cleared by restart in safe mode.

Re: McAfee update causes blue screen crash?

Confirmed by me too. Did an driver update of my Dell Wireless network card to the current version 8.0.0.239.

An Dell XPS 8100 i7 64-bit Win-7 user.

Works fine(Right now)

Re: McAfee update causes blue screen crash?

That is great I have been saying it is a clash with a dell driver or rather some hardware/software that dell uses commonly since day 2.

Hope this helps more

Re: McAfee update causes blue screen crash?

I have the same set-up as Loucetius (as you can see from my signature), but I already HAD that very same driver version installed at the time this all  happened.

So, while some sort of Network Service/Network Adapter Driver problem seems to be logical, that explanation does NOT explain it or work for me.

Re: McAfee update causes blue screen crash?

That is annoying  so you had the latest and still were having bsods that implies another issue again. Getting like the mcsvhost isue that had 10 causes.

Of course as you are using another brand product you cannot check if issue is still there with current version. Probably is.

Will mention this in our call at least it helped 2 so far.

Re: McAfee update causes blue screen crash?

@Peacekeeper:

Yes, and you deserve some sort of medal for sticking with this.

As I said a day or so ago -- if McAfee will cough up the cash for me to purchase a duplicate system identical to mine, to beta test and experiment with, I'm all for it.

Short of that, I really don't expect McAfee can really help me, since I cannot possibly invest any more time/effort/expense/lost productivity to repeat the insanity again and again.

OTOH Someone really ought to gather up & merge all the related/identical/similar threads here -- there are so many I've lost track of following all of them -- and try to resolve this for some of the other folks.

(Though I suspect most of them have likewise moved on, as well....)

Sigh,

MM

Re: McAfee update causes blue screen crash?

This issue seemed to be solved. If yours same issue updating the wireless and network drivers to the latest version should fix this issue. All depends on your BSOD type.

Try this and post your version numbers and build of the Mcafee Security Centre, VS and firewall
