We are installing a new image of windows 7. I have syspreped it. McAfee is already installed prior to sysprep. When a user logs in we finish setting things up. But if we watch, I can see the shield looks normal, then it changes to the M shield. This shield has more options including the agent status. What makes it change? I do see it not connecting to the ePO server in the agent staut sscreen but I can foce a install of the agent from ePO and then it works great which also changes the shield back to normal. Could the agent be corrupt?
Okay, so it appears it is not the shield that changes, it is McTray loading. If you run mctray -unload from the command line it loads the correct shield. Now how do I stop mctray from loading or why it is loading instead of the regular shield?
