1 are you logged on as admin? If not try and retry WOW
2. Re firefox two things to test disable Siteadvisor and retry and disable Parental controls and retry.
Also did you have anotehr antivirus or firewall installed. If so did u use their removal tool to clean up all bits before installing Mcafee?
Yes, I am always logged on as administrator when I am on my computer. I resolved the issue with firefox by reinstalling evn though I had the latest version of the browser. No other antivirus or firewalls exist on this computer due to my belief in McAfee products due to no past issues in relation to operation. However the issues I am experiencing with the playing of or even promptly loading World of Warcraft.
Did you try disabling each product and try to run the game. ie disable parental controls and try then reenable it then try disabling firewall for a minute or 3 then reenable it. Once you find which is the issue we can dig further.
We (mods) have a call to techs tomorrow so try to get above tested before this time tomorrow and I will talk then to them re issue
Uninstalled and reinstalled Internet security without certain pieces each time, tried full install while disabling each program individually, and so far no success with any of them. I recently purchased Unreal Tournament 3 and have had no issues as far as loading or playing the game, so I am certain it is isolated to the interaction between World of Warcraft and my McAfee Internet Security. I am wondering if it is within the version of Security Center itself because I rolled the system back to an earlier point and the game functioned fine while running the previous version of the software, but when it updated itself to the most recent version, WoW stopped responding.
I'm having similar issues with real-time scanning and Games Explorer. I suspect something changed with the most recent few patches that makes real-time scanning MUCH more aggressive, consuming large amounts of CPU time, when it had not done so in the past.
Security Center version 9.15
Virus scan version 13.15
Personal Firewall version 10.15
SiteAdvisor version 2.8
Anti-Spam version 10.15
Parental Controls version 11.15
Backup and Restore Version 3.15
No, unrelated to WOW. The Vista Games Explorer. Just in general, it seems like the realtime scanner got flaky recently, so was providing another example.
Ok found the games explorer what issue are you having with it. smmnc879 is having slow loading and locking up. Mine loads in a flash . Could be the new beta mcafee I am using but need to know when I talk to the techs tomorrow...
