Continuous McAfee V8 Update Crashes - Help!

  mint lotus 22:03 06 Dec 2004

Can anyone help? I use Windows 98SE fully updated. For many weeks V8 auto update crashed my PC as it finished. This results in ScanDisk running. The start-up sequence begins but never completes. It loops. The only way to stop the loop is to go into Safe Mode at start-up, then shut down. Re-starting in normal mode afterwards is then OK. I changed the SecurityCenter to manual update so I could update when all applications are closed, in my time. This makes no difference as the PC always crashes on clicking "Finish"; then the ScanDisk cycle starts up (without looping). I am in touch with McAfee and they asked me to completely remove V8 and re-install, using tools that they sent to be used with Add/Remove Programmes. Again, this makes no difference. These crashes are killing my HDD and I now have a bad sector. McA promise early resolution. Has anyone got any ideas and has anyone experienced the same problem?
