This is my first post in this board.
For some days I've been getting trouble with my network and remote virtual printer driver under Firefox.
I attempted to troubleshoot hese issues and I ended with an unknown plugin, not here for long, probably 3 or 4 days no more because I'm inspecting my system quite twice a week but a mistake is still possible.
I updated Viruscan Enterprise 8.8 to sig #7314 last Saturday.
The plugin is "IDSS_SS_NAME IDSS_SS_VERSION", it says to be originating from McAfee, without any more pieces of information. No ID, no version.
I disabled it and my problems went away.
What this plugin is for ?
Where does it come from ? Last update or malware?
If originating from McAfee, it must have asked for permission before installation, right ?
Thanks in advance and best regards

Thank you for your feedback.
1) According to your recommendation, I uncessfully ended with this tab because although Scriptscan was enabled, I'm lacking skills to find out what to put in the exclusion boxes. I left it as-is and looked at the other Access Protection module instead. Here's what I did:
I activated the option within the Viruscam console under "Access Protection", "Common Standard Protection", "access protection" tab, "Protect Mozilla& Firefox files & settings".
For some reason, "Block" was disabled. I didn't reactivate the "IDSS_SS_NAME IDSS_SS_VERSION" firefox addon, object of my previous mail, just because on another instance of Firefox, under another user name, the add_on was not existing.
2) Some days ago, I noted that it was impossible to delete some folders I just created. I spent lot of time troubleshooting the issue, trying Grant Admin mode enhenced rights. No way to delete these folders nor move or even copy their contents.
This morning, I noticed that all these peculiar folders had Mozilla at the first place in their name, i.e.:
MozillaCacheView (x86), MozillaCacheView - (x86), MozillaCookiesView Cookies Manager Firefox (x86), MozillaHistoryView - for Firefox (x86),
I disabled the block option et voila!
What's strange is that Mozilla isn't detached of the other words composing the directory names and that sub-folders named "new folder", "new folder (2)", ... were protected by heritage. I also have to add that these folders are concerning Nirsoft utilities, not dealing in any way with Firefox program. The drawback is that I have no more eccess protection to firefox files.
I'd appreciate that somebody may explain thiese behaviours and also provide a deeper explanation of the role of
"IDSS_SS_NAME IDSS_SS_VERSION", not implemented in new instances or installations of Firefox.
Thanks again in advance and best regards
