          I assume that by McAfee you are talking about VirusScan.

          Please install the latest VirusScan patch, reboot the computer and try to run the scan again.


          PS: What version of VirusScan did you install? Are you running XP 64 bit?

              I also have an application 'freeze' when I do a full scan. I ran virtual technician several times with no errors reported. Then it reported an out of date DAT file after I had checked for updates. The problem persists. My initial error message is related to no full scan in the last 30 days.
