I am trying to solve a problem with the boss's Dell Latitude portable running Windows XP (as recent as a week ago all Windows patches were up to date, but he is still getting the not running popup). A McAfee window will pop up while he is using the PC and say McAfee is not running, then a few minutes later McAfee will start running again. Anyone know why McAfee stops running and displays the pop up, then later starts running again? Or what is causing this error message/popup?
The tray icon is not very accurate, you may want to verify it is actually stopping. How often is it doing DAT updates? Policy being pushed to it?
