          Are you by chance seeing some Access Protection events around the same time similar to the following?


          Blocked by Access Protection rule NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM C:\Windows\System32\svchost.exe C:\Program Files (x86)\McAfee\VirusScan Enterprise\x64\scan64.exe Common Standard Protection:Prevent termination of McAfee processes Action blocked : Terminate

            The question is a tad too generic. What you're showing here is that the on demand scan process crashed. There could be a multitude of reasons for that.


            The most productive way forward, if this issue is reproducible, is to capture a process dump of the failure.


            Procdump -ma -e -w scan64.exe

            Then run the ODS.


            A dump file will be created, which can be shared with Support for further investigation.

            If you have reason to suspect this might be an issue we've seen in the past, the due diligent thing to do is test the behavior using our latest version + patch, 8.8 Patch 5.

              If i'm correct VSE is the 8.8 RTW version. McAfee supports Wiindows Server 2012 with VSE 8.8 Patch 3 (build number or higher


              It's a good idea to upgrade to a higher version

                I was going to say something too but I checked my VSE latest version and the properties for scan64.exe were also 777.

                  Yep, there isn't enough data in the post to know which version they're using.


                  We only update the binary version stamp when code has changed since the last release, and, we haven't had any need to revisit the code of the ODS process since the product shipped. Seems surprising huh?

                  But the executable doesn't actually do much. Much of the work the ODS is does is handled by other DLLs that we load, like vsodscpl.dll.
