Mcafee Agent program interference

I have an MFC application that opens a few multicast addresses and displays data received on those sockets.

The application runs on both Windows 7 and XP without issue.


Installing McAfee Agent 4.6 causes the program to stop displaying the information on both Win7 and XP.

Uninstalling the Agent allows the program to function normally again.


No other products were installed, only the agent.

The program still opens the sockets according to netstat -a but no data is displayed.

Wireshark shows the packets still arriving on the correct multicast ports.


Any ideas?

    Are you certain you have nothing else installed except the Agent? No Virus Scan? No Host IPS? The McAfee Agent by itself should not have anything within it that would cause those issues. Is this application you are using publicly available?
