buffer overflow

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?

//Mod note: moved your post from the "VS8 Home" subforum to the appropriate forum.

    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.

    This usually shows up on unpatched versions of VSE 8.5 what patch level is your at? (and also is it centrally managed from an EPo server)

    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)
