    Windows 7 versus ALL AV products?

    ottawa_tech_31

      A long time ago, Microsoft published this KB article,

       

      http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2698155/en-us

       

       

      We didn't deploy it, deciding to wait on the next service pack, but now, it seems Service Pack 2 for Win7 is not happening..

      http://www.theregister.co.uk/2012/10/24/no_windows_7_sp2/

       

       

      So, with this in mind, should be get this hotfix and broadly deploy it?

       

      Does Mcafee have a recommended course of action?

          I was wondering about this also.  I noticed that I already have a superseding update installed (KB2739159).  You may want to check if you are in a similar situation.  There is also a newer hotfix for freezes under heavy file I/O load, KB2740374, which you may want to test, considering that full antivirus scans generate heavy file I/O load.
