Thanks for the guide Pritish,
I followed it to the letter, except was unsure which version of .NET you were referring to as being incompatible?
After follwing all of your steps the errors persists:
Faulting application upddlg.exe, version 184.108.40.206, faulting module msvcr80.dll, version 8.0.50727.5592, fault address 0x0001500a.

That occurred with me that did not have an Internet connection or broken.
The error is back after uninstalling the McAfee as a Service and reinstalling- It's again unable to update on it's own, but the update completes when ran manually.
Thanks Gita, however the Saas Anti virus and Spyware protection is the only component installed.
No Mcafee browser protection and no Mcafee firewall have been installed.
This definitely a problem with the 64 bit OS as all other 32 bit pcs on the network are not reporting this error. I have 3 x 64 bit XP pc's all reporting the same error.
The offending pcs are unable to automatically update.
The pcs have all windows updates installed.
I have run through the uninstall/reinstall process as outlined by Pritish.
