Ho hum. Up to 63 pages here and still no fix.
I took off my automatic renewal of McAfee.
I blocked their e-mails trying to sell me more security software. Are they kidding?
I love Computer Associates.
Good luck everyone.
BTW, I never got a response to the e-mail I sent after all the work with Dinesh. They "assigned" me someone in case I had questions. Sent an e-mail. No answer. At all. Nada. Nothing.
Reported back a bit that end june promise broken as they found several causesfor the issue. So I have stopped saying a date.
tmgr14 sorry re your email should have PM'd me I would have got action. Will pass your sentiment onto our admin who looks after the lower techs
I've been with McAfee for so many years that I can't count them. When I was running OS/2, McAfee was my anti-virus. I've been very reluctant to change. In fact, I renewed for 2 years early this year -- just before this error message started.
A company that genuinely cares about its customers cares about all of them, whether they're individuals or large companies. That's why some companies have such great customer service. It becomes a habit for them.
I'm beginning to think McAfee doesn't care about me, and numerous others like me. A google search for mcsvhost now yields 81 pages of hits. I haven't made a final decision yet, mainly because it will be a hassle, but I'm seriously considering moving on. They won't miss me. It looks like they couldn't care less.
Gene they do care at least we do but some developers put different priorities on issues. This now is No 1 issue and by pages and views here time they got off their backsides and fixed it.
Talking about this again in tomorrow's call so will update thread I I hear anything new.
I have contacted Mcafee Techincal service for problem and they say me that is a Microsoft problem. It seems can solve download this component
I have asked how is possible that is Microsoft problem considering that problem appear from ver. 10, but they say me that this is an old component of Win xp that must me upgraded.
Anyone has similar news?
I had a full case opened with Microsoft. It is a McAfee problem, not a Microsoft problem.
Peacekeeper, after I spent hours on two different days with Dinesh, I was given a person to e-mail. I DID make a comment here that I received no response to an e-mail I sent to that address. After removing the desktop icon (Dinesh did this), I went on to have problems with McAfee at startup.
Then got the data 59** error....I must have uninstalled and reinstalled McAfee 5 times. Also used their cleanup tool.
No thanks. I am done with McAfee. This isn't the first time I have had a problem with poor support and no resolution.
Good luck to everyone who stays. Such a big company to not have dealt with this in a timely fashion.
My friends who don't visit forums but who also have McAfee have jumped ship to other services. CA comes free with my cable service It is fabulous!
Not MS issue it is caused by Mcafee even they acknowledge it. So far they have found well more than 5 things that can cause this they fix 1 and another sometimes pops up. We are trying to get them to release the fixes that work so at least some will get relief.
Sorry you are gone but understand why.
Peacekeeper they must test before new version not after many user has this problem. On the net you can find many forums where user talk about this.
Technical service of Mcafee as first solution say me to unplug all usb devices and make 2 restart; after all will be ok. Is a joke?
Neither best microsoft can say this as solution. The second time try to install a ms patch. And now want to use my pc in remote? ahahahahah
Maybe techics has time to joke. I have not. Test must be done BEFORE release not after and not casually.
So the only thing that mcafee can do for me is give my money back. No problem for me give all the documentation to my lawier.
For the moment ridicolous company
