Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

Hi,

In responde to your question:

My Windows is XP Professional. P3 installed. It is a Dell Computer. I do not have another anti-virus on my PC.

All previous runs of Virtual Technicial feature from the McAfee Support WebSite Page on the Web did not gave me any benefit at all.

Regards,

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

I have been following this thread since the error was first reported on Feb 16 and I have not commented before, but I feel compelled to make a few comments and let the people on this forum know some information: I currently work at Intel Corp and after the .dat file virus/corruption that shutdown Intel Corp worldwide, the IT department at Intel was telling me that they are having talks on whether to continue using McAfee or not. Second, I just was talking to Dell Tech Support after I needed some drivers installed, and Dell Tech Support is no longer pushing McAfee to be installed on Dell computers, they are recommending Norton 360. My father had McAfee and has been told now by several computer repair people to use AVG. I have been a user of McAfee for years, but after finding all of this out, I will not be renewing my subscription once it expires. The bottom line is, no matter what comments are made, is that this McSVHost error was reported on Feb 16 on this forum and it is currently May 23rd with no fix. +3 mos and no fix as of yet. This is not the service I wish to be paying for! For everybody out there that works in a customer related field, what would happen if your company did not provide a solution to the customer for 3 mos???? Just my 2 cents worth.

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

Just a cautionary tale here:  I had the same problems with McAfee until I uninstalled it. It did, and does infuriate me. When I uninstalled it, I switched to AVG. AVG experienced worse problems than McAfee ever did (I am sorry to have to admit this). Their techs gave me long-winded activities to perform in order to send them logs, etc., by email. Finally a technician accessed my system remotely and after an hour or more of tinkering supposedly fixed the problem. But he added another layer of trouble:  he configured my computer so that the wireless user in the h ouse could not get online unless I was offline. I finally gave up on their "so-called" technical help and uninstalled the disastrous product and asked for a refund. I notice that they play loose and free with their disastrous technical help, but are thoroughly unwilling to respond to requests for refunds. So now I have Kaspersky. It is working great so far. No McAfee, no AVG and no Norton (been there done that and won't revisit that resource hog product). Yes, McAfee's lack of response is horrendous, intolerable. But compared to AVG, McAfee worked like a dream - and as we all know, McAfee is closer to a nightmare. If Kaspersky continues well, I will be thrilled beyond description. All I can say is, be careful what you wish for.

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

Silly question time.

It is a coincidence or was it just luck in that I did not have this error on my laptop until yesterday after

I downloaded Windows update KB973688 - Microsoft XML Core Services 4.00SP2 ?

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

Not luck will ask around but no change in my frequency it happen so irregularly that it really is a non event on my XP test PC. Though others do get it nearly all the time

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

Hello Friends

I am repeating my suggestions for the benefit of the members here:

I have posted a temporary solution to this problem quite some time back.Please note that this will not harm your computer but simply disables the error message for the Mcafee only. Follow these steps until Mcafee resolves this issue.

If you don't want this error to show up all you have to do is to go to

1. Click Start
2. Select Control Panel
3. Select System
4. Click the Advanced tab
5. In the Performance region select Settings
6. Click the Data Execute tab in the dialog box that opens
7. Select Turn on DEP for all programs and services except for those I select
8. Click Add.
9. The open dialog box will open.  Browse and select your application. c:\program files\common files\mcafee\mcsvchost\then mcsvhost.exe
10. Click Open
11. Click Apply
12. Click Ok
13. Reboot

So if anyone has already turnedoff the DEP then the error won't show up.BY TURNING OFF DEP PL REMBER YOU ARE ONLY HIDING THE ERROR,BUT THIS IS NOT SOLUTION TO FIX THE ERROR.

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

Hi all,

I followed exactly your instructions, but no good news...

I am still experimenting the error every time I switch off my PC.

I put in action a "rough" procedure where, before shutting down, I cancel the process "mcsvhost.exe from the task manager, so that no error is indicated on the screen.

But, if I forget it...the error is regularly shown up!

When is someone going to solve the issue definitevely?

It seems you do not care of consumers so much...

Regards,

Fabio
