Well, I had a few minutes of hope, anyway.

Shortly after I left that message, I closed down for the night and got the error message.

Not sure if this is wirth crowing about re Mcsvhost error but

Back A bit I mentioned I went out and bought an old PC with XP so I could test it and mcafee's interaction. Well 2 weeks after setting up I got my 1st shutdown error. The box is pristine and unchanged from day1. Only mcafee updates added daily or MS updates added. There has been no surfing etc so at least I have a test box to run Mcafee's fix when it comes rather than begging some1 to test it. Also saves me trying it on my Son in Law's PC.

Fingers crossed for a fix soon. Oh the delay in shutdown was 10 secs in fact would have missed it if I looked away.

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

Yoga,

Instead of Disabling all the services why shouldn't we disable only the McAfee Network Manager. It will work

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

I also see this problem exactly as described when using XP but not on a Vista machine (Home Premium SP2) sharing the same LAN and with the same settings in Security Center.

Connection to net is DSL

LAN is wired

XP Pro SP3

IE v 8.0.6001.18702, cipher 128, update 0

Pinging returns 4 x 213.123.84.16

Not keen to disable McAfee services because presumably I'll be left unprotected.

Regards

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

I am getting this error also during shutdown. It's an "application error" saying "memory could not be written". I just installed Mcafee a couple days ago, it's the newest version. Doesn't seem like it happens every time, except lately it seems to.

Here's my about info:

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

Add me also to this error on shutdown.

The 2010 install caused me so much grief last week (BSOD, etc), that I started last night with a CLEAN (fresh install) after running Dell Diagnostics for a day with NO hardware errors.

XP Pro SP3 - fully patched

DSL connected.

Only installed Virus Scan, Firewall, and SiteAdvisor (don't need parental control, spam, on-line backup junk).

Nothing else "trick" has been installed yet (no drivecrypt or threatfire or multimedia, etc).  Just trying to get through this upgrade before I spend days getting my computer back to the way I liked it.

Should have stayed with 2009

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

So, did this "fix" it?

Since I've cleaned and reinstalled several times, I seriously doubt it.  But maybe you are the lucky one.

Anyone watching this thread, I see other odd behavior since moving to 2010.  My CPU is constantly "bouncing" between 0% and 20+% approx every 2 seconds .  The processes causing this behavior are McSvHost.exe  (6-15%) and mfefire.exe (5%).  I don't recall this behavior in 2009.

I've attached a jpg of the CPU Usage History from my Task Manager.  It's like I've given up 20% of my processing capability.

And if Rahul is reading this:  Do you have a fix for this behavior?

I tell you, much more of this and I'm pulling the plug on 2010 and moving to a competitor product.
