Re: Event ID: Mfehidk & McShield. MVT not working.

I have 3 computers that I have Mcafee total protection, 2 desktops and a laptop. The laptop has 2009 still installed and has no problems. The other desktop is my wifes and has 2010 on it and has the same exact problem I have on my desktop. Her desktop also uses norton ghost 12 to image the drives, but it does not have the BSD problem.

Both desktops have XP with SP3 and are both up to date

Well my machine had a bsod when it tried to backup, the same codes I posted earlier. I added a picture of the message I get from the event viewer about mfehidk.

Re: Event ID: Mfehidk & McShield. MVT not working.

Hello,

I got the same error and apparently not even a single person cares about it. For that reason I switch to ESET and everything is working excellent, even better than McAfee's latest version.

Cheers,

Re: Event ID: Mfehidk & McShield. MVT not working.

It's been clearly stated that it's being dealt with, so it simply isn't true that "not even a single person cares about it".   Just because a tool misidentifies a file for a while wouldn't be enough reason for me to jump ship.

Anyway, good luck.

Re: Event ID: Mfehidk & McShield. MVT not working.

Hello Ex_Brit,

I apologize if my answer was a little rude but I was talking about the dev. team that should have done enough tests before they release the product... I think they rushed it so they don't stay back from the rest but they are starting to loose clients, old and loyal, because their support is terrible. I will always appreciate all the help you gave me and to this forum, the same for Somer Pyron but I have to say that instead of decreasing the problems posted here they are increasing in different environments, so, that's why I decided to switch to another av solution, because I was not feeling protected with McAfee anymore. Hope to become a McAfee costumer again and be able to rec to my friends and family as I've always done in the past.

Cheers,

The_Narc

Re: Event ID: Mfehidk & McShield. MVT not working.

I have 3 computers on a home network all with XP Professional. Internet security updates to 2010 all had problems. MVT repaired all the problems like missing files and registry keys. When I run MVT on all machines it now reports there are no problems. Except for one machine has system event warnig:  Event Type: Warning Event Source: mfehidk  Event Category:  (256)  Event ID:  516  Process **\MCSHIELD.EXE pid (432) contains signed but untrusted code, but was allowed to perform a privileged operation with a McAfee driver. It doesn't seem affect the programs functions. It appears to be working fine. I've tested it with virus test files and it is very prompt to quarantine the test file.Although it appears to be working it is very annoying to have the system event log file filled with warnigs. I have uninstalled McAfee several times, manually cleaned out files and registry keys. I have ran MCPR.exe and mvt_en-us.msi several times and re-installed from my account several times. I may have ran all of these at least six times. I still get the warnig in system events.

Hardware Installation.JPG

I did the install first without installing it and then with , It didn't make a difference. The only reason I can come up with is that the machine I'm having the problem with has many more programs on it and there may be some conflict with one of them. I really don't want to unistall all of them just to find out, but if somebody doesn't have another way, I may have no choice. In the mean time I'll continue to use the product because it is working.

Re: Event ID: Mfehidk & McShield. MVT not working.

I see that you're having these pop in the log every 2, 3, 4 minutes apart, but mine are a second or so apart which slows the PC or causes it to drag while trying to work.  In 3 minutes my log would be soo long with this I stopped counting at 100.
