I have the same problem with a 2003 Windows Server SP2. Also running VSE 8.8 with Patch 2. Engine version is the same. The only subtle difference is VSCORE 188.8.131.526.
Once McShield.EXE crashes, the server requires a hard reboot to restore operations. This has happened 3-4 times since we installed Patch 2 last November.
Processes on enable is NOT selected.
VSE does update correctly.
Have you been able to resolve your problem. I am considering a reinstall of VSE at this point as I have three other servers with identical config which aren't experiencing the same problem.
I also have been experiencing this problem where a 5019 event is logged andshortly after that the system slows down to the point where it has to berebooted. The applicable systems are the following,
Windows Server 2003 R2 SP2
Windows Server 2008 R2 SP2
Exception in McShield.Exe!
Exception Code: 0xC0000005
I have been applying a POC Hotfix to the affected server achieving positive results. The POC I have been using was provided by McAfee Platinum Support andshould be included in VSE 8.8 P4 release.
This is due to a code-path in McShield’s execution that is not thread-safe.
Try contacting Platinum Support asking about this problem and their suggested resolution.
