Hi,

Everyime I run Mcafee Managed virus scan update(I'm just using Mcafee Antivirus that came with an internet banking agreement), the progress bar gets to the buffer protection part and then this error message comes up:
"Installation Error: 0x80004005". I've Googled but Google, googles out links to the error code but for Outlook express.

What is going on with my system, is this some sort of vulnrability in Mcafee? :tazz:

Thanks

Hmm it's amazing what you can find when you go to pages 2,3 and so on in google :tazz: , anyway google, googled out a link leading to URL http://VirusScanASaP...c5f4c5342382627 and voila a complete re-install of the scan engine.

Thanks again.
