A/V 8.5 includes buffer overflow protection for most common Microsoft applications.
My guess is A/V is trying to hook to IE to protect it.
The nice thing about using McAfee HIPS with A/V, is the buffer overflow protection in A/V is automatically disabled and the HIPS agent has a very, very small footprint.
Mctray was trying toinject code into explorer.exe and not IE.
And it always does that during system startup.
So far I have been disabling it, just in case .
Anyone has this has this experience with ZA and Mcafee?
mctray.exe is part of the Common Manager Agent and ePO system tray item.. It DOES deal with Explorer information because it's constantly trying to update the McAfee data which is stored there and in the registry..
Access can be "Allowed" in ZA Pro.
Hope this helps.
Is there any way that i could disable running of Mctray.exe. I do not want the process to be running after a reboot. I currently have to manually stop the service and kill the process in task manager.
How important is Mctray.exe .. do i really need it running?
