Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

Yeah, it's a McAfee application error.

I haven't removed/re-installed it, but I believe Security Center updated again a couple of days ago and I was prompted to restart my PC, and *crossing fingers*, I think the error no-longer appears. In the last couple of days when i've shutdown, I didn't get the error, so maybe it's been fixed?

What i've got Installed:

Security Center

Version : 10.0

Build : 10.0.570

Last update : 23/02/2010

VirusScan

Version : 14.0

Build: 14.0.36

Last update : 25/02/2010

DAT version : 5902

DAT creation date : 24/02/2010

Personal Firewall

Version : 11.0

Build : 11.0.378

Last update : 10/02/2010

Anti-Spam

Version : 11.0

Build : 11.0.261

Last update : 10/02/2010

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

     I have 2 PC with this error.

     PC1:

  • How did you install 2010 version?

     Download DMSetup.exe. After this, install him. A fresh installation, with no upgrades.

  • Is it a fresh installation or is it a over installation on MSC 2009?

     Fresh installation.

  • How much is your system RAM.

     512MB RAM

  • DO you have too many programs running on start up?

     Only 2 programs (mcagent and ctfmon)

     PC2:

  • How did you install 2010 version?

     Download DMSetup.exe. After this, install him. A fresh installation, with no upgrades.

  • Is it a fresh installation or is it a over installation on MSC 2009?

     Fresh installation.

  • How much is your system RAM.

     4GB RAM

  • DO you have too many programs running on start up?

     4 programs (mcagent and others, that I don´t remember now)

          Thanks for your help.

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

> McSvHost.exe" on shutdown.

Same problem as everybody else.  This is ridiculous, you've now had one full month to correct it.

Win XP.  Over installation, no uninstall of 2009.  448 MB RAM.   It ran great for at least a solid year.   Same programs on start from when I purchased the computer, no additional adds at all!

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

No issue here  I did have a Mcsvhost error on boot not shutdown back in the 1st week of the beta 2010 testing in last Oct. This was fixed a week later. I feel this is a clash or a malware issue but last I heard Mcafee was contacting several posters here to check out their pCs as at that time 10 days ago they still had no idea of the cause.

I have reasked them and put this as an agenda item for our Monday call.

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

Thanks for the update. Good to know that someone can keep this in front of those who can fix it. As for it being a malware issue, at first I thought that's what it was instead of researching the file on line. Did a clean format and install of XP Pro and, as soon as McAfee was fully updated, there was the problem on shutdown again. Are the techies suggesting that my XP Pro disk suddenly has malware on it? I installed it, then McAfee, in that order, then updated both.

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

Like many of the others I have the same problem - just rebuilt my system with a new XP Pro Sp3 installation about a week ago and a fresh 2010 Security Center install off my account.  The error on shutdown happens just about every time which I have been ignoring but today the PC has been extremely slow to get going and McSvhost appears to be hogging a lot of memory.

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

Added the post re it occurring after a reformat to my monday call. My issue with this is..... Did you upgrade xp to current first? Then install mcafee? that is safer way keeping windows firewall on while xp updated.

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

No. As soon as possible, I added McAfee and updated that first for its protection.
