Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

My system is still running with the two 'fix' files that we tested prior to the fix being rolled out.  Since then, my SC has updated to 195, but firewall is still at 131, not 135.

I don't currently have any problems, such as others are reporting after receiving the downloaded fix.  I was just wondering what's the betting that when my firewall finally upgrades to 135 I start getting the problems that others are now seeing.   I'm going to create a restore point now and then keep an eye on things.  If I do start getting problems after firewall goes to 135, then I think we can assume that the problems are related to that. Or is there something extra that the techies added into the released fix?

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

My test box still on 131 for firewall strange nothing I do will change it.

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

Maybe like you said before.  It will probably need an uninstall and download afresh to change it.  As mine's working fine as it is, I think I'll leave it like that.

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

Mcafee has a way to force updates but will not work on XP it seems the folder needed is not there.

Ageed mine got the manual fix installed as well maybe that affects updating so I will give it a few more days then do a reinstall to see what I get. that is why I got the test box

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

I installed the manual fix back in July and have had no more shutdown errors.

However, though my security center updated to 195 my firewall would not

update on it's own no matter what i tried it remained at 131. I finally decided

to remove the manual fix from one of the two machines i was running it on

and did a manul update that updated the firewall to 135. So far so good.

Steps i took to get my firewall to update.

Turned Off Access Protection.

I renamed the manual fix files to something else.

I renamed the original files that were replaced during the manual fix back to their original names.

I restarted.

I turned Access Protection back ON.

I did a manual update and the firewall went from 131 to 135.

That was a lot easier than reloading the entire thing.

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

That is what I saw as well the manual fix stops firewall from updating to 135.

I did it the hard way I uninstalled reinstalled as the box is a test box . Everything updated as well as getting the mcshield/mcagent fix. Mcafee is finally getting their bigger issues fixed which is good.

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

Peacekeeper, I have now removed the manual fix from both of

my machines and was able to manually update the firewall to

135 on both machines. Both seem to be running just fine with

no shutdown or other noticeable errors.  I do think the manual

fix was blocking the firewall from updating. Thanks for the help.

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

I also put in  the manual fix and have not yet updated at all, so do you presume the manual fix blocks future updates some fix

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

Manual fix would/could block the update that changed the files I understand that but a new update to firewall say 138 would update without issue.

Oh the 138 was just me saying that there is no 138 build yet.

Re: McSvHost.exe causes error on Shutdown

Given that the manual fix blocks future updates, I have decided not to use it but wait for the corrective update...........if it ever arrives.

My virus scan is updated daily but my security center is still at build 194 and my personal firewall is still at build 131. I cannot understand why it is taking Mcafee so long to get security center 195 and personal firewall 135 distributed to customers - I live in the United States.
