    BO:Writable BO: Heap

      Hi All.
      Every time when my start up my computer I'm receiving popup alert on desktop:
      C:\WINDOWS\system32\services exe: WS2_32.socket under Name column
      BO:Writable BO:Heap under Detected As column
      My computer has McAfee8.5i and Windows XP sp2 both in current date updated.
      How to fix that alert?

          Since you have the corporate version of Virus Scan, I've moved your thread to the "Desktop and Server" forum where it should receive better responses for your "BO:Writable BO:Heap" error.

          The error is referring to a Buffer Overflow detection.. Question is,, which patch number are you using for VS 8.5i? We are currently on Patch #4 and I've not seen the error for users with that patch..

          If you disable the "Buffer Overflow Protection" from the VirusScan Console, does your computer work normally?

          Because it's a socket error, are you using a firewall of some type and if so, if you disable it does the error go away?

          Hope this helps.
