tryed to open adobe file from mcafee. black adobe page loads and says; adobe could not open mcvsosns.dll because it is either not a supported file type or because the file has been damaged ( for example it was sent as a email attacement and wasn't correctly decoded. i bought mcafee online and received the product in my yahoo email. any advice would be appreciated.

Are you sure the file was from mcafee? I doubt very much they would send a .dll file.

I did a search on google for this file and got "0" hits... very unlikely if it were a known/valid .dll file... especially if it was one to help you register software. If the file is supposedly from mcafee, I would contact them and ask them if/why they sent it. They shouldn't be sending a .dll file via email unless you specifically asked for it... then again, if it was a valid file, mcafee would have it on their site for download... not sending it through email!

You should never attempt to open attachments received in email unless you know for sure what they are, what they pertain to, and if the source is a valid source.

I thinks somethings up with this one! :)

Contact Mcafee!

In post title, you say "pdf" file, then you say "dll" file. Which one is it?
Since there no hit on Google for mcvsosns.dll, 99% it's malicious file. Do NOT touch!

What I think you're describing is an association problem, and the only problem is that the icon for the .dll files in the Mcafee folder looks like an Adobe acrobat icon. Adobe is not meant to open .dll files belonging to Mcafee. The only program that should open a .dll file is the program the .dll file belongs to, or a program that has to use the dll file, in which case, Adobe shouldn't be doing for Mcafee.

I guess you have to explain WHY you are trying to open .dll files??? Is it just because they have an Adobe icon?
