Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

Hi, had the update on the 22nd, and after 2 shutdowns (22nd july evening & 23rd july evening) no error, and low and behold last night on shutdown (24th july) guess what !?!?! the error...

Mezzy

ps, seems to me that the update did "help" the issue if you like, but not cure it.

Also, my netbook STILL has not recieved its update.. and automatic updates are ON.

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

So ,this error still goes on and on and on and STILL no fix.(68 pages and 133,000 views from as far back as Feb and still the problem exists)

I can't understand WHY people persist with McAfee. I've used McAfee products for over 10years and they've always been a no hassle easy to use product.But not any more.

I've moved on now , thank goodness and I'm now using. A nice ,hassle free ,FREE product.

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

Mate they are working on it as Somer mentioned and it appears it is not a single issue. More news tomorrow after our call.

I still say the issue is not significant ie damaging it is annoying but agree 6 mths is too long to have it.

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

I am getting the same error message on shut down on Windows XP.

Has there been any resolution to this yet ?

I uninstalled / reinstalled mcafee total protection 2010 on 21st July after a seperate error kept popping up. At the time I was not aware the McSv Host.exe error was connected to McAfee.

Where do I find out which version of Security center I have ?

Open security centre, go to top right the navigation option then about on middle left.

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

Ok Mcafee is testing a fix. They are testing inhouse at the moment but they need a couple users who are getting this issue regularly. If you are interested in running the patch and trying it post back please. It is a beta software but will only be offerred if tested as ok internally

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

I still get the error almost every time I shutdown on my laptop.

I would be happy to install patch and report if it removes the error.
