My first one line post . . . sorry
IMO the first thing to do would be to "uninstall" McAfee.
Step 2 involves "installing" Trend Micro's PC-cillin 2005
Step 3 is to relax while life returns to normal.
I spend my days [actually most evenings as well] returning peoples 'puters to a functional state. Whether it be hardware, software, adware, spyware,
crapware, viruses, etc. . . I have yet to receive a call from anyone using this program.
Now, I'm not necessarily trying to "plug" a particular program . . . it's just that in over 5+ years I've yet to receive a call concerning a
system using Trend's "all-inclusive" Internet Security program [antivirus, firewall, wireless intrusion, spyware detection/removal, security
checker for Windows vulnerabilities(updates), and the most important aspect is a much more proactive approach to overall detection/protection.
All for the same price as most competitors charge for their antivirus alone. . . $49.95
To me it's a no-brainer . . . when set to fully-automated [updates,scans,etc.] it just works, with little or no user intervention/input.
Addititonal plusses include free phone support for the lifetime of your subscription [and you'd be surprised how quickly they answer the phone], free
online virus scans for anyone, and the list just goes on and on.
ooohh... and all that in a low resource program [less memory usage], unlike that of either Norton or McAfee [memory hogs IMO].
Anyway, I hope the aforementioned leads help you to resolve your current problem.
Turns out this wasn't a one-liner after all :O)
