Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

I believe your system had the file svchost.exe quarantined as bad by McAfee.  So even with the "good" dat 5960, your system is still unable to locate the file.

See this for more info- http://service.mcafee.com/FAQDocument.aspx?id=TS100969

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

Hello all,

First of all, I wanted to apologize for bad English. It is not my native language.

But with the help of Google and a dictionary, try to transmit my message.

My system is a intel dual core, with windows xp sp3, IE 8. When used MTP
2009 never had problems. But when upgraded to MTP 2010, I had Mcsvhost.exe the error

in the shutdown of the PC. At the time of the error, the version of the Security Center was this:

Version: 10.0
Build: 10.0.570
Last update: 02/23/2010

Then came an upgrade version of Security Center and became:

Version: 10.0
Build: 10.0.580
Last update: 04/14/2010

I want to inform you that after the upgrade, never had the error
Mcsvhost.exe in the shutdown of the PC.
I would add also that before the upgrade, I found a way of not
have the error (Mcsvhost.exe) in the shutdown of the PC.
I did the following: Before turning off the PC, I opened a Notepad window

(or more than one), and wrote something on it. Then turn off
PC. Then when windows was shutting down all programs he stopped in
Notepad window. So I waited a while (about a 30-s).
And after that, I closed the Notepad window. And the PC shutdown without the

message of error (Mcsvhost.exe). I am no expert on the subject, but from

what I see, it seems be a simple problem.

I hope with this statement have helped you.

Regards

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

I am breathing a sigh of relief.

I got the popup box today.  From McAfee. IMMEDIATE UPDATE REQUIRED.

Not.

That's it. I hate signing now and wondering if my next update is going to make things worse not better.

I'm gone.

I uninstalled McAfee, ran the cleanup tool...

Then I installed Computer Associates Full Security Center.

Free as part of my ISP's package.

It's highly rated.

I feel better already.

I could deal with the small error message, but now...

Also, this forum has a few followers. I think of all the McAfee users around the world who might have to spend hundreds to get tech people in to "fix" a crashed computer.....Most people don't understand what to do when things go south.

Getting back the money you spent for the program is a small thing, compared to what it will cost some people to have someone come in a get a computer up and running again.

I will check back on progress.  Out of curiosity.

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

I did the same as you. I have uninstalled McAfee and gone through the process of having to pay for another software package to replace it, which I can ill-afford, being unemployed for as long as I have, but better than letting McAfee trash my computer more and more each day. After doing all the uninstall procedures required by McAfee (uninstall through the Control Panel, then shutdown and restart, then run the MCPR.exe file to clear out the remaining McAfee garbage, then restart again). Then I ran CCleaner (which is free, by the way). CCleaner found huge numbers of McAfee trash items left behind after the uninstall process, and quickly and efficiently deleted all that nonsense. Guess that McAfee doesn't really want to clear everything out and so leaves us these little, unwelcomed gifts behind.  THEN I installed my new program. Very nice, very smooth.

Good bye, McAfee. I'll never use your products again, not even your free SiteAdvisor. It is nice to be able to communicate with staff affiliated with my new product who actually understand English and respond in a pro-active, non-canned script manner.
