I have a recurring problem from time-to-time that I would like to resolve.
DELL Optiplex GX240
XP-Pro - Service Pack-3
SecurityCenter 9.15Build 9.15.160AffId 108Language Pack: 9.15.117Last Update: 11/19/2009
McAfee pops-up with:
"McAfee has automatically blocked a buffer overflow.
About this Buffer OverflowFile: C:\WINDOWS\explorer.exe
Buffer overflows can cause legitimate programs to fail.
Other programs that experience buffer overflows, however,
can be used to harm your computer, compromise its security,
and damage valuable files. "
At the same time, my PC is sluggish.
Explorer will hang/crash and I have to kill the explorer process.
This time the Buffer Overflow occurred when I was archiving
downloaded movies/videos to CD-R.
If you want you can disable it.
1.- Open SecurityCenter and select "Advanced Menu" located in the left corner down.
2.- Select "Configure" and "Computer and Files" in the left panel.
3.- In the right panel under virus protection select "Advanced"
4.- Uncheck the option "Enable buffer overflow protection" and hit OK.
