Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

Sorry for the troubles, Bob...

In my experience, using sys restore is a last resort. I have only done it a couple of times, but things have never been quite right afterwards.

I wound up reformatting my hard drive both times, I think.

For this error message, IMHO, it's just worth waiting it out.

My McAfee services, icons and program are all running as expected, except for that error message, which will be fixed...

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

I am not a computer expert, but I was told that IE8 was designed for the windows 7 platform. I have winXP sp2 with IE6. I downloaded IE8 and had issues. Microsoft tech help told me to convert back to IE6, I did and everything went fine.

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

I have to say that I am really upset with McAfee's performance since this new upgraded version.  And I have good reason to be upset.

Thus far this McSvhost.exe problem has (1) caused my hard drive to become unrecognized, requiring an mbr repair, (2) works the heck out of my microprocessor, even pegging it to 100% usage at times and freezing my system, (3) it has interfered with my telephone dsl modem so that when McAfee is installed I have to leave my phone off of the hook or my modem disconnects and when I am connected even with the phone off of the hook my modem barely works half its normal speed, (4) it causes none of the security settings I choose to hold, changing them as soon as I have exited after making them.

How do I know it is the McAfee Internet Security Suite that is doing it?   Simple!  Everything operates normally while it is uninstalled.   As soon as I reinstall it I get back into the same problems.

I liked the 2009 version which is what I bought but McAfee fights me being able to load that version and use it.   My subscription has three licenses but I only use one of them as I only have one computer running.  I have others but I live by myself and I do not bother to network them.  My subscription does not expire until October 2010.

In the midst of struggling to figure out what was happening to my computer and my modem I got a brand new modem from AT&T and put all of my programs over to another of my better computers.  So everything has been changed.  But when I run McAfee 2010 with any machine and any dsl modem I get the same trouble all over again.

I am really smiffed.  If McAfee will not let me go back to 2009 from my disk, I am going to call it quits with McAfee.

As soon as I exit this post I am going to go delete 2010 and try to reinstall 2009.  If they won't let me I will go to WalMart and buy another Internet Protection Suite and be done with McAfee.

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

2009 will be updated you cannot I understand stop it without stopping dats. That is something we asked ie let us know exactly what is coming through a dat or an update so we can say do not update it.

The 1st patch to TP4 (2010)  version 4.5 is now available in beta at www.beta.mcafee.com if any 1 wants to try it. you have to join but ex_brit installed it and says no issues as far as he has seen.  I do not know the fixes yet but worth a try if someone wants to. I will install it later tonight.

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

How do we know what version we are running? When I click "About" all I get is a series of different version numbers for each component of Total Protection. Specifically:

McAfee Security Center Version 10.0; Virus Scan Version 14.0; Personal Firewall Version 11.0; Site Advisor Version 3.0;  Anti-Spam Version 11.0; QuickClean & Shredder Version 10.0.

So where does Version 4.0 appear, much less the version 4.5 beta - if I should dare to install it?

My apologise talking beta speak. From 2007 version each product was called Totol Protection 1 2 3 etc.the 2010 version is TP4. It is not used here to descrobe the versions so I should have just called it 10.5 (Security centre).

The new 10.5 version is stable and has some fixes included but have not been able to confirm the mcsvhost issue fixed as noone I know has the issue.

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

Peacekeeper,

Thanks for the clarification. I've jumped through the hoops today with McAfee support - and refused to let them access my computer to rebuild the wheel that they've already had me rebuild four or five times already (uninstall/reinstall/dump cookies, etc. etc. etc.) - and all to no avail. That got them to escalate me to the next level when I explained it isn't just my two computers, that LOTS of people are complaining about this error and they need to resolve it. We'll see. Supposedly I'll be getting a call sometime today from McAfee, but I must confess that I am losing faith in their willingness/ability to repair the issue and maybe just need to go and buy a different product.

Mate do you have a printer/fax or something similiar attached to your PC or on the network? If so unplug it before yoiu shut down and see what happens.
