Every time I start up my computer (WinXP) I get the message from McAfee (VirusScan Enterprise 8.5.0i) of a buffer overflow in: "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe:KERNEL32.GetProcAddress" Subsequently, rundll.exe (from c:\windows\system32\) tries to access the Internet.
There are no problems besides that the computer because of this starts up slowly. What can/should I do about this?
In the exclusions for a buffer overflow in McAfee two programs are mentioned: wmplayer.exe and explorer.exe. Is there a danger in adding iexplore.exe to this list?

It is very dangerous if you added iexplore.Exe to the exception. I guess your ie may infected by some virus. Make sure you Xpnull is ready updated to sp3.And Vse's virus dat is latest.Then make a full scan.
you can only get them from whichever support contracted central authority provided your virusscan software, or if you were that authority and had a valid support account you could have logged into the corporate support portal and downloaded it. (although actually VSE patch 5 is available with a valid grant number from central downloads as its the latest package version now, but still you would need a valid support grant number)
