Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

One thing noted (at least on my system) is that since the upgrade to the 2010 version , the auto updates have not been taking place. Up until that the upgrade , there were dialy updates every day when I went online. Since the 2010 version , I have to have it check for the updates manually , even though auto updates are turned on.

That's another issue that's being looked at.  Updates and autoscans are delayed automatically if the machine is in use.  It's supposed to override that after so long and do it anyway, but in many cases it seems not to be working.

However, that said, make sure because the updates occur totally silently.

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

The updates are silent , that is correct. However , the icon in the tray changes to include a small disk (clock?) when the update in taking place. When I checked Monday to see if things were up-to-date , the last VS update was shown as 5/1/10.

True, luck if I catch that happening though.

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

Yet another problem. Not just a shutdown error.

Totally silently?

I always got notification when the updates were installed. They may have been silent, but I could always tell an update was going on because my computer slowed down ... a great deal.

Still happy with CA.

Checking back.

Hopefully, this will be fixed before a whole "HOST" of problems crops up. Pun intended.

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

Pun appreciated, if not by McAfee at least by me.

With my updates I told it not to show the pop-up even so they just happen, but I don't notice any slow down.

I guess it depends on the machine and what's running.

Just a note...

I ran "Windows Live One Care Safety
Scanner" and it returned the following registry error:

HKLM\Software\McAfee\MSC\NMC\Url

When I
reboot my PC the error is right back again.

I looked up this
registry key with REGEDIT and its value is:

misp://C:\PROGRA~1\McAfee\MSC\McNmcUI.dll::nmc.htm

Confirmed same registry link and no file present in Win 7 64 bit So the link could be benign though pointed this out to the Techs during our Phone call.

Pcfriend passed your info you provided onto them as well Thanks

I then browsed to the above folder, but the file "McNmcUI.dll" doesn't exist.

I tried doing a search for it on my entire harddrive, but it doesn't exist.

I then ran the McAfee Virtual Technician, but it returned no errors.

Don't know if this is related to my "...could not be written" error or not. Just letting everyone know.

Hi

You are probably right, as the entries relates to an URL which might not be available to Mcafee2010 program when XP is already shutting down.However, I strongly suggest for eavery one not to meddle with your registry with any 3rd pary software or manually to try to find a fix as Registry is a very important file & any mistakes done will carsh your xp system itself which is not worth trying for this McAfee problem.

You can try however my  suggestion previous post of custom installation & see if it helps until a fix is found.It is almost 99% confirmed that this needs to be addressed at coding level by Mcafee developers.Let us hope they will find the bug & a fix soon.

FOR MCAFEE DEVELOPERS:

I have provided a link here which explains

How to identify where a failure is occurring in your code by using the address in the error message that you receive as per Microsoft:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/196755

Pl see if this can help you further:

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

"Just a note...

I ran "Windows Live One Care Safety Scanner" and it  returned the following registry error:

HKLM\Software\McAfee\MSC\NMC\Url"

I went in and DELETED this entry from my registry.

I have not had the error since and it has been 3 days now.

I had to edit the registry using Safe mode because otherwise, it would not let me delete or modify that setting.

Thanks for the tip.
