Peacekeeper, yes, this PC has the problem, on the XP installations, but not on the Windows 7 installation. Perhaps they put code in it that was designed to work with Vista and Windows 7, but has problems with XP. With my setup, I can check both.
For clarification, on my PC; mcsvhost gives the error message at shutdown. This happens no matter whether the printer (USB) is on or off. It also doesn't make any difference if I am still connected to the internet, or not. If the last thing that I use on the internet is email with Outlook Express, then when I exit that program it prompts me to disconnect from the internet. Internet Explorer 6 used to do the same, but despite setting the option in Internet Options, to terminate the connection when it is no longer required, IE7 and IE8 both ignore that instruction. That's a Microsoft problem, not part of this scenario.
Anyway, with every peripheral turned off and internet disconnected, mcsvhost.exe still causes the error on shutdown in XP. If I run Task Manager and terminate the process for mcsvhost.exe prior to shutdown, I don't get the error message.
So, yes, this machine is a good candidate to test out your beta version.
We have 1 user installed teh beta so far so good but as this issue doesn't show on all shutdowns we have to wait a couple days to be sure. If you want to try go for it BUt remember uninstall 2010 version via MCPR tool reboot clean up any left over folders and install beta. When you want to uninstall the beta use the beta MCPR tool not the 2010 1 this 1 liked to on your beta login account
I don't want to have to Open Notepad when I shut down my computer. I want McAfee to work trouble free. After all, that is what I paid for.
I want to be able to click on " Shutdown" and have my computer shut down without any errors. Anythinbg else is NOT acceptable
Doing what was suggested is like saying, you must open the right hand front car door before shutting off the engine to keep the engine from backfiring...

I never said that I had discovered the solution to the problem.
My tip was more to show that the problem seemed simple.
And I thought it would help those who can really solve the problem
And I want to inform you that after the upgrade, never had the error Mcsvhost.exe in the shutdown of the PC.
Excuse me if there was any misunderstanding. You do not need to attack me stone. I just want to help.
