Why does latest update cause debugging program to open in Outlook 2003?

My McAfee recently updated itself and told me I had to restart my system for it to fully update.  I did so and now when I open my outlook 2003, the just-in-time debugging program opens a McAfee script box and tells me to debug.  When I do so, it says, Microsoft Jscript runtime error: validlink_google is undefined.

How do i get rid of this annoying box that doesn't correct the problem?

Hi,

I use Outlook 2003 and IE8

I have the exactly same problem since yesterday after McAfee updated, a "Runtime eror" appear each time I receive message on Outlook.

(see runtime error.jpg)

When the error message appear I run the debugger  and a script error appear "Microsoft JScript runtime error : validlink_google is undefined

(see JScript.jpg)

But the debugging don't solve the problem.

Hi All,

Just as a workaround, try if this helps you to fix the problem:

Navigate to C:\Program Files\McAfee\Site Advisor\saSets.ini – open it and change the value of Outlook from 1 to 0 (check the enclosed screenshot for more information)

Reboot the computer and check the status.

I tried to update the file.  It says I do not have permission to update in this folder.  Any options?

Hi,

Sorry Aldrin but I have not seen your answer before and I tried this:

I did a system restore dated January 3, 2011 which eliminated the problemHowever this caused a problem with real-time monitoring of McAfee. So I installed and excuted the software McAfee Virtual Technician. This has solved the new problemI rebooted 2 or 3 times my computer to check if everything worked well and everything is alright.

Thank you

Adrin

This problem is exceedingly irritating and it is not exclusive to outlook.  Can you either roll back the most recent update to the previous version or get this fixed and issue an an update? You guys broke it, now please fix it!!

This is one very good reason to not allow automatic updates. Never again!
