          Hi Platoon,


          Please run McAfee Virtual Technician from http://mvt.mcafee.com and update the session ID here.



          Is there any registry cleaner software like Glary Utilities, iolo System Mechanic on your computer?


          How long you have been facing this issue? What is the operating system and Internet Explorer version on your computer?

                Please checkf older C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc and remove all other files rather than hosts,lmhosts.sam, networks, protocol and services. Then please open Hosts file in notepad and replace it with below Hosts file content.


                Hosts file content

                #This is asample HOSTS file used by MicrosoftTCP/IP forWindows.


                #This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each

                #entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should

                # beplaced in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.

                #The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one



                #Additionally,comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual

                #lines or following the machine name denoted by a'#'symbol.


                #For example:


                #   rhino.acme.com         #sourceserver

                #    x.acme.com             #xclienthost


                #localhos tname resolution is handled within DNS itself.

                #        localhost

                #            ::1            localhost


                Open Internet Explore >> Tools >> Internet Options >>Connections (Tab) >> Lan Settings >> Uncheck all the option and click OK.

                      Absolutely not, this errors happens as the so said registry cleaners might have removed or have a incompatibility issues with McAfee programs , Moreover  these errors do not have any impact on the PC’s.

                      And since you have uninstalled glary utilities already , Please contact our technical support chat from Useful links at the top of this page so that our technicians help you remove the remnants traces of glary utlities if found any and fix the idispatch eror for you.
