Thanks Gene for the excellent explanation. I guess the only question I have for myself now is do I want to use Stealth Mode or not? How about the rest of you out there on this post, do any of you use the Stealth Mode? If you are using it, how do you like it? Does it do anything to help eliminate the McSvHost.exe error?
Hi I have used stealth mode since day one and no it doesnt stop the Mcsvhost exe
error from appearing.
If a program wants access, I just get a mcafee pop up asking for permission to connect, a quick click
and its gone.Message was edited by: daydreamer on 27/05/10 19:29:29 IST
The desktop icon issue can be resolved. Search these boards for "desktop icon", you'll find a thread with a solution. The problem is in the registry, a script error associated with this "Access Protection" feature of McAfee 2010.
That Link I posted was the fix. I wonder if you missed a step so can you retry it please. The fix is said to work so if not try a chat sessions from teh Technical support link in Useful links tab about. They can remote to your PC and do it for you.
Same for me! desktop short cut gone ,and since the last Mcafee update 4 days ago I have had no McSvHost error message
I would also like to thank Somer for her help in rectifying this issue.Message was edited by: moop1519 on 5/23/10 8:19:43 AM CDT
I do not think it is gone we and some Techs are trying to get it released earlier than mid June but to date we have been not successful. I feel it will return on yours sorry. Mine occurs 1 shutdown in 20.
I speak in my language (translate by Google):
"Scusa PeaceKeeper, ma sono stufo di dover terminare ogni volta il file McSvhost.exe version 126.96.36.199 dal task manager per evitare l'errore che è ALWAYS presente!
Spero che i server ITALIANI siano aggiornati per poter scaricare il fix il prossimo June 2010!!
Mcafee è per me una società poco seria verso i suoi clienti soprattutto stranieri e in particolar modo italiani!"
Stiamo cercando di ottenere una correzione in precedenza, ma a metà giugno a fine Giugno sembra essere il momento in cui piano di caricare la correzione.
We are trying to get an earlier fix but June mid to late june seems to be the time they plan to load the fix.
