It has been over a week and no response or resolution has been offered to the McAfee Host error issue. I have received several updates to McAfee, no help. Security Center now at Build 11.0.654 Virus Scan now at Build 15.0.294. (McAfee annoyance - copy text disabled on About screen)
It occurs to me that maybe I am asking the wrong question. Maybe I should start another thread with the question below.
The real question is - How do I know a virus or worm has not defeated McAfee? How do I know my computer is not part of a criminal botnet?
At best, this unresolved issue is seriously affecting my computers usability. At worst, I may be infected with something bad that has overcome McAfee protection.
Get this fixed - soon. I am quickly losing confidence in McAfee. Do I need to go elsewhere?
Sorry missed this post will point the techs to your error doc
Yes that about screen sucks I and others have suggested in the ideas area here to enable copy and paste.
If you got the error during the update, you can easily do a system restore. That should do the trick. And make sure to back up your files just to be sure.
Usually, only installed programs or updates will be affected by this but it helps to be preventive.
Several causes to Mcsvhost errors some are as follows
1.HP printer installed and the full suite of programs loaded
2. Alcohol 120% software installed uninstall it and use another burning software.
3. Unknown issue Mcafee is looking into. They found reinstalling teh graphics drivers helped 2 users but other users still having issues.
