McAfee virus scan update shuts down IE.6

  patchrico 17:34 09 Jan 2006

Has anyone encountered this problem.
Everytime I try a manual update of Virus Scan I get directed to the McAfee update site page as normal -- then just before the update procedure would normally start -- A dialog box appears saying that a problem has occurred an IE must shut down.

There is no other problem with IE -- its just when I try and update McAfee. (just in case I have tried disabling the popup blockers inc Adaware and MS Antispy)

This problem seems to have been resolved --- I ran the System File Checker tool to scan all of the protected files on the computer.

Click Start, and then click Run.
In the Open box, type sfc /scannow, and then click OK

This needed the the XP OS disc to be reloaded to complete the file check. Now the McAfee updates work OK - so presumably this corrected the problem.
