I've downloaded and installed the beta on this installation/disk. It's running with XP SP3 and IE6 at the moment. I did install IE8, but for some reason it's playing up with your site tonight. Come to think of it. Your site is not much better running on IE6 at the moment as it keeps doing strange things, plus the text size and placement is all over the place. All other sites are OK, as is the main www.mcafee.com website. For some reason, the forum is displaying really weirdly at the moment. It keeps changing all on it's own too.
Anyway, having installed the beta, I still got the error message when the computer shut down for a restart a few minutes ago.
Hi Peacekeeper and Creature
All I can say is I have done absolutely nothing to the settings of the Internet Security, i have not disabled anything, touched nothing. Just as creature was saying during the recent upgrades to build 10.0.580 i have not had the shutdown error.
This is the start of my 5th day, so will wait to see what happens when I shut down in about 3 hours time. and then later on this evening.
I will list the builds/dats/etc below.

All I have installed is Anti-Virus, firewall.
NO Family protection, networking, blah blah blah.
PS, I have a CLEAN install of windows xp home SP3 on my netbook, yet I still have this issue on there.
Also have the issue on my MAIN computer (windows xp pro SP3) which has not got a clean installation, and not going to get one either. Far too much work/programs/files etc to lose & back up.
+ the fact I dont see why I should reformat my hard drive for a Faulty Mcafee product.

Agreed if it is on a clean skin reformating the other will not help. I will see what our contacts get back to us with.
Good idea to think of some backing up don't you think.?
On our Conference Call yesterday we compared notes and realised that shutdown errors are pretty common and aren't always something that is easily dealt with unless one starts messing with shutdown processes in the registry.
I get them all the time with various applications especially in Windows 7 and hitherto have taken little notice. I multi-boot 4 operating systems and have learned to ignore an awful lot. Most of them are merely applications being too slow to close in a timely fashion therefore Windows has to force them to do so.
I'm not saying that's the case here, but if it's just an error and you aren't having other issues then my suggestion is to ignore it.Message was edited by: Ex_Brit on 27/04/10 7:13:00 EDT AM
Regarding my post 500. i thought it may have gone but alas it is back. 4Days with not seeing the error but it came back today.
I totally give up now.
Just please announce when a fix has been done, thats all I wont to hear now nothing else but just that. I am going to uninstall this crap programme and dl AVG least thats is free and gives me no problems on my laptop
Regarding your free AVG anti-virus install: I did the same a short time ago. It was so terrific that I purchased the AVG Internet Security. Really happy with it. Really happy with their customer response. Oh yeah, and the people who speak English there actually speak English intelligibly. What a pleasant surprise after McAFee.
