I had the dreaded crash and since then every time I boot a message appears on my desktop as follows-- Can,t listen on port 6515.Make sure TCP/IP transport is setup correctly and that no other applications are listening on that port.Does anybody know what all this means ?

are you on a network at all?

A search on google suggests that this port is/was used for McAfee updates on a network:

does this make any sense ?

Reply via e-mail: Thanks, Possible, shall I delete Mcfee,I was told could be virus in my reg,but won,t let me in to edit.

If you want to check on-line for virus, then try Nortons facility:

And/or perform a full scan of your system - PS is your McAfee virus scanner up to date ?

Perhaps removing McAfee and reinstalling might be a good idea.

On a personal note I (and our company) have had problems with McAfee and now use Nortons Antivirus (and Firewall).

Also I have just downloaded AVG antivirus free version and initially it seems quite good.
