I received an update to McAfee SecurityCenter and now when I run the Check Point SecuRemote Service client (latest version) my machine crashes and reboots (OS: XP home). After playing around with the issue, I found that disabling SystemGuards resolved the issue (no forced reboot). I just wanted to bring this issue to your awareness, although it seems you've had issues with SecuRemote in the past. While I understand that you are under no obligation to be compatible with every vpn client or other miscellaneous software product out there, please keep in mind that it is much easier for me to replace my antivirus software than it is for my company to change vpn clients.
If you have any questions, please let me know. Heck, I even saved off a minidump that may be of interest (I don't know because I haven't opened it up yet).
Sorry! I just posted a similar thread before i saw this one. i am having the same exact problem Turning off Systemguard fixes it but that's a hassle. I hope a fix arives soon or it will have to be goodbye to Mcafee.
Just want to chime in that I'm having the exact same problem. I have Check Point VPN-1 Secure client installed, and ever since getting the latest McAfee security center upgrade, my laptop (running XP) crashes and reboots. If I uninstall the McAfee software it's fine. (Uninstalling and then re-installing the McAfee doesn't fix it; it makes the problem return.)
That helped stop the continous reboots, so I can actually use the laptop. But now when I WANT to shut the computer down, I get the blue screen (fatal error), then it reboots itself. When it comes up, it says the system has receoved from a serious error. The Microsoft link says it's still related to virus software. Do I need to uninstall the McAfee software in order to shut down? Or is there something else I can do?
