After turning on my comupter
A error pops up called relating to the memory being unable to read.
I know the program is part of McAfee but it opens 30-40 or so errors that take up a stack of memory.
What to do?

This is a valid program, but it is up to you whether or not you want it to run on startup.


Name: MPSExe

Filename: mscifapp.exe

Description: McAfee.com Privacy Service - "combines personal identifiable information (PII) protection with online advertisement blocking and content filtering"

File Location: Unknown

Startup Type: Currently being identified.




Click start then run, type msconfig then press start up to see if you can remove the tick

I have allready tried to remove it.
But when Mcafee starts up it loads mscifapp and the problem starts all over again.

Now its stopping my connection to online games.
It could be unrelated but it started happening straight after mscifapp stopped working
Its not a virus either, I ran Panda, Norton, AVG, Spybot, Ad-aware, Spyware blaster and they found nothing!

Re-install McAfee to see if the error goes

Right click the desktop icon then properties then compatibility to tick turn off advanced text services

*Sorry been at coast*
The errors have stopped after reinstalling McAfee
But for some reason now my computer runs really slow and won't load online games. eg HL2 Deathmatch, CS:S, WOW and Battlefield 2!

Now what is wrong?

You could have a bad memory stick. Is your computer set to scan memory on boot up? You might want to go into Setup and make sure it does and watch the boot up to see if available memory compares to physical memory. :tazz:

My Ram is 512 memory

I don't think its the ram but i don't know what the [bleep] else it could be! :tazz:
