McShield Service Failure : Error 1068

Hi Everyone

Hope you are well!

I have had an issue recently at one of my clients where if I start the McShield service from the services window i get the following error:

Could not start the McAfee McShield service on Local Computer

Error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start.

I have removed the VSE from the one server, tried to reinstall without restarting (My client is currently in freeze so I cannot restart the servers) and no luck.

Any advise would be appreciated.

Kind Regards

Hi,

McShiled services is not starting because it's dependent on McAfee Validation Trust Protection Services. Possible there is corrupted removal of VSE or might be the McAfee Agent 5.X present.

If you are using some other point products like HIPS, DLP etc then this could also created a problem, Please remove every point products and make a reboot and then install fresh.

Please reply to this thread.

Kind Regards,

Ajay

Thanks I will try this if I have this issue again, I had to remove all the McAfee applications and then re-install it to get it functioning.

Re: McShield Service Failure : Error 1068

In my environment it was due to a failed HIPS patch/update.  The Validation trust got corrupted due to failed update.
