                            You are quite welcome Hopefully one will pick up this thread and add to the discussion. It is my understanding that  'mfevtps.exe' is a Core Process.

All the Best

This is a standard McAfee AP log event where it is blocking driver mfevtps.exe to modify the McAfee settings. You can ignore this alert as it is not creating any issue to DNS server.
