I have a recurring problem from time-to-time that I would like to resolve.
DELL Optiplex GX240
XP-Pro - Service Pack-3
Language Pack: 9.15.117
Last Update: 11/19/2009
McAfee pops-up with:
McAfee has automatically blocked a buffer overflow.
About this Buffer Overflow
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.
