After Patchday February 2013 McAfee Security Center throws errors in Event Viewer while searching for an update or checking the abonement:
It seems there is a problem with the Macromedia Flash Player (in Windows 8 it is from microsoft, you cannot install another version).
My System is Windows 8 Pro, 64 bit. Total Protection Security Center is 12.1, Build 12.1.253.
This problem occurs today the first time. Only change to system was downloading and installing microsoft updates. No registry cleaners are used.
I was hoping to shed some light on this in my Win 8 Pro w/MC x64 but realised that I have SC v12.5 - no such event can be found. In fact I'm surprised that there are no red-flagged events at all in my rig.
I'm so used to several red warnings in Vista and Win 7 that I tend to ignore them unless there are actual issues.
Is it causing any malfunctions anywhere?
BTW you can install Adobe Flash & Shockwave yourself if you have other browsers installed.Message was edited by: Ex_Brit on 13/02/13 11:00:38 EST AM
Thank you for replying.
No malfunctions anywhere.
Good advice with another browser, but I think one browser is enough.
If it's not causing issues I would ignore it in that case. If you see a problem then Technical Support would be the best place to have it checked out.
Meanwhile there may be others who are seeing this and hopefully spot this thread.
