    McAfee Solidifier prevented an attempt to modify Registry key

      We currently have McAfee file integrity monitor running version 5.0.1-6302.


      When we try to apply a Microsoft security patch to any of our servers it bombs out and we receive the following application event:


      Event Type:        Error

      Event Source:    McAfee Solidifier

      Event Category:                None

      Event ID:              49

      Date:                     8/10/2010

      Time:                     8:41:50 AM

      User:                     N/A

      Computer:          ServerName


      McAfee Solidifier prevented an attempt to modify Registry key 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager' with value 'PendingFileRenameOperations' by process C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution\Download\b8d4e7f43ec69f97b656479e81226f75\updat e\update.exe (Process Id: 5392, User: Domain\myaccountname).



      I discovered a potential workaround


      1. Log onto the system with the error.
      2. On the desktop, double-click Solidcore Command Line.
      3. From the Solidcore command line, type the command below and press ENTER:

        sadmin features disable integrity
      4. Exit the Solidcore command line.
      5. Re-run the patch


      However after attempting this, we still are unable to apply the patch.


      Any ideas?
