    The McAfee Boot Delay Start Service service hung on starting. Event ID: 7022

      Service name mcbootdelaystartsvc (executable path "C:\ProgramFiles\Common Files\McAfee\Platform\McSvcHost\McSvHost.exe" /McCoreSvc) remains hung in Starting state and can’t be stopped or restarted. Start type is Automatic and runs under local system account. Since it remains locked in Starting state forever, technically it hasn’t failed so the recovery action (restart) never takes place. From System log {Type: Error, Source: Service Control Manager, Event ID: 7022, Description: The McAfee Boot Delay Start Service service hung on starting}.

       

      I’m running XPP SP3 with all final updates (including IE, but don’t use it) and McAfee SC 12.8.934 (dated 2/21/2014), AV 16.8.708 (dated 4/9/2014) VS 2.8.716 (dated 10/17/2013) reporting Secure, no action required. MVT reports no problems found either.

       

      I can’t find this condition previously reported in the forums, but https://community.mcafee.com/thread/63714?start=0&tstart=0 was also problem for me. Both errors have been occurring at least since 2/25/2014; my System log goes back no further. I followed the work around for mfeapfk.sys (Start key change from 2 -> 3) which suppressed the startup error message (file modified date January 27, 2014 with build SYSCORE.15.1.0.659 F16).
