Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

Yes it is still throttled 10.5 will come soon. What I found is if 1 server diod not give you it after uninstall reinstall try another server. the australian 1 is always 1st updated.

If not having 10.5 is a big issue get back to me but it will come .

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

I am still surprised why this error (McSvHoost error on shutdown on Windows XP) has not been corrected for so long a time. It is a program written by MacAfee

programmers themselves and they are specialists aware of any subtleties in windows. So, I do not understand why they need so long  a time to do find out a solution?

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

Yes I have had this happen since Mcafee upgraded to the new 2010 antivirus plus .

you get an error message that is McSvhost.exe.  This is totally a Mcafee problem. I callled HP and found out with an excellent tech and had to uninstall TOTALLY all mcafee softwared and download the free AVG for now and it is working well with no more error messages...

You cannot get through to Mcafee without downloading their VIRTUAL TECHNICIAN which is useless, while you have AVG installed.  So to go to mcafee you have to unistall your software  then download their virtual technician  then chat or email and have them download their version IF they have corrected the problem.

They tell me it is because I have other vs of antivirus on my pc and I have never had anything but Mcafee since purchasing this computer.

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

Hi, I  just found out more information, when Mcafee upgraded to 2010 antivirus plus, you have to have more than 1GB of RAM on your pc. There is no way Mcafee can fix this problem on any computer without more than 1GB of Ram, so spend $80 and add more Ram or buy a new hard drive and upgrade to higher memory and higher GB on your hard drive.

Hope this helps you all out. I have to use AVG free for now and it works fine.

Good luck read my original post and this is also what HP told me and I have to admit I had to go to their escalation team to find out with high tech support.

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

The RAM minimum thing is a bunch of bunk (pardon the expression). Obviously, HP has very knowledgeable technical support people --- NOT. I have 2 GB and I've had the error problem for months.

PC World surveys of users indicate that HP support is pathetic at best -- near the bottom of the list.
