    Prevent termination of McAfee processes - explorer.exe

      8.8 Windows 7 64

       

      When the user attemps to open a folder using Windows Explorer via doble click on the folder the action is blocked and ccessprotectionLog entries are made:

      A right click Open works - only the double click causes the events.

       

      A full scan does not find anything.

       

      How can I determine what is trying to run and mess with the McAfee processes?
