McAfee Virus Scan - Error on start up

  RickB 10:53 03 Feb 2004

I have recently installed McAfee Virus Scan via download (so I suppose it is version 8 but I can't tell). Now the machine takes an age to boot up and eventually comes up with a dialogue that says "NT on-Access Scanner Service has encountered a problem and needs to close".

Any ideas how I sort that one out?

(I am running Windows XP with all available upgrades)

Same problem,and no resolution offered here either.I will continue looking,although when previously I had Mcafee problems,I simply removed Macafee and changed to AVG.I have used AVG instead now for several years.

Hi Rick
I have McAfee version 6 and had a problem with that. I went on their Technical Support site click here
and they rang me back and solved my problem.
Worth a try.
