Blue screening PC

Hi Guys

I am administering a network with 256 corprate PC's

we are getting Blue screening issues, the microsoft forum has stated macafee  Agent 4.00.0011 is the cause as it is not compatable with windows 7.

can you confirm if this is the case? and advise if there is a patch for this.

I have attached the output file from windows upgrade advisor

Thank you

Thanks Tony

Sorry for that, Newbie mistake

Re: Blue screening PC

You are correct that is not compatible, according to this KB article, Agent 4.0 Patch 3 is required.  According to the Patch 3 release notes, that is version  This article lists what versions of VirusScan and HIPS are compatible with Windows 7.

However, it's hard to say whether the Agent incompatibility is causing the crash.  I guess you could remove the agent from a test system and see if that solves the problem.
