Re: McShield service terminated unexpectedly

A bit of a late update but rather than starting another thread I'll continue on this one.

Patch 4 has now been released. I added it to my EPO server and deployed it my clients and servers. Most are fine and working correctly. But I've got two laptops that struggle around update time and the server which I detailed in an earlier post is still showing the same problem. Around update time it gets numerous scan time outs and occasionally a full on service termination.

The scan timeouts I can live with but when the service terminates it blocks all network access while it cleans up and restarts. This locks out all clients from network shares and causes all the machines that have their offline files hosted on that server to request a sync.

I've looked through the policies but is there anyway to turn this feature off?
