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?

    RE: BO:Writable BO: Heap
    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.
