    mferkdk service fails to start.


      I've searched around a little and can't seem to find an answer to this problem.

      Each week when my virus scan kicks off, an administrative error is logged in the system Administrative events log.


      I'm using the McAfee security suite offered by Comcast. This is the only security suite I've had on this computer. McAfee tech support suggested I remove and re-install which I did, but did not resolve the problem. Seems mferkdk is the procedure to scan for bots.


      Could be many people are receiving this error and don't know it. I just happened to stumble across the error message in Administrative events.


      Anybody have any ideas how to fix this?
