    Last Update Incompatible with Display Driver

      During the last update (around 9/29/2010), upon restarting my system, my Sony Vaio laptop display began having random issues with the screen turning blue, than pink, than purple, than normal and back to pink or one of the other colors.  I did a System Restore back to before that upgrade and now my system is perfectly running.  I will be uninstalling McAfee unless there is a fix for this.

          Sorry to inform you that, there were no such incompatible issues reported with Display Drivers after installing McAfee. However, it would be great if you could let us know the (manufacturer/version) details of your computer's display adapter. In addition to that, try to reinstall McAfee and let us know if it causes the same issue again

              Thanks for the information. Yes you may be right, it would be due to Windows Update. Anyhow, install back the McAfee programs and let us know the status...
