This error only occurs in Windows 7.
- Right-click the Anti-Theft icon in the system tray (near the clock).
- Select Lock All.
Your Vault should now be locked.

This is a good workaround. Thanks for your help! Unfortunately in my last experience with anti-theft I had to remove the system tray because it started warning me every time I booted my PC that I had updates, which none were available. I turned out that my subscription had expired. Which brings up the question - why in the world would you need a subscription for this product? Assuming they've implemented a proper encryption technique that should be the end of it. Anyway I figure in a year I'll have to remove the tray so I can keep using the product.
Does not work, bad advice.
Worked for me. It's a great work around. Hopefully McAfee will release a more permanent solution for this problem soon.
FYI>>> Don't know if this might be part of the problem, but my Vault is located on Raid 5 array.
Workaround is not working because icon in bottom tray disapear as soon you save a file in the unlocked vault.
I never have an icon in the bottom tray. I have to click "show hidden icons" first, after which I get a window showing a bunch of icons including anti-theft. That icon never disappears. I don't really "save a file in the unlocked vault" either. I move (drag-n-drop) a file to it and then close it using the icon's context menu. So far the workaround works for me.
