Mcafee Privacy Service 2 Hours installing !

  skidzy 22:05 14 Sep 2006

After all the problems ive had recently with Mcafee,i now seem to have the Privacy service stuck while updating.

Mcafee Security Suite 2006 xp sp2,Broadband 2.2mb

All updates where carried out last night either manually or autoupdate.No problems.

All working fine,until the Privacy Service started to install todays updates automatically.It has now been stuck for around 2 hours,and will not let me reboot.

Ive looked through msconfig and find no relevance to the Privacy service,but shows the rest of the security suite.Tried with the firewall disabled,task manager seems fine with cpu at 4% with just Firefox open.

Surely this cannot be such a huge update ?

All advice welcome and as usual,greatly appreciated.

Thankyou Skidzy

^^^^^^^^^^ its getting annoying now 3 hours and just cannot stop the thing.I really do think its time for Zonealarm and AVG ...

Personally I opted out of the Privacy Service.

Try CTRL + ALT + DEL to bring up Task Manager and stop it.

Switch the thing off, reboot and uninstall Privacy Suite, its not worth the effort. I only ever install the AV and Firewall and ignore the other packages.
