    I'm having the same problem  "McAfee Service Host has encountered a problem and needs to close.  We are sorry for the inconvenience.".  Running Windows XP service pack 3, Firefox 8 and Google Chrome.  Both browsers are up to date.  Will lock out internet access, Other times seems to not have any impact.  Also have run Virftual Technician and it has no impact.     please advise!

    Re: mcafee service host crash

    Several of these type errors around do a search for mcsvhost in the subject .

     

    Mcafee is trying to sort out the causes. I have not seen this on my family's 8 retail installs. Not happening on my 2012 pre beta install either.

     

    several things to think over

     

    1 Is this on a HP if so is HO cloud software installed? (also called zumo backup)

    2. Try disabling netguard in the firewall settings any help.

     

    Either you interested in a tech checking out your PC and grabbing logs?

    I'm agreeable to tech checking out my PC and grabbing logs.  Lets set a time/date and get it done.  You can also reach me my cell-phone at **** removed for privacy

     

    Thanks,

    Will pass on to him plus your phone. I assume no Hp cloud and netguard disable does not help. (this to both of you the netguard question)
