McAfee 6.x

By mad_myk3l ·
I have noticed that after performing a clean installation of the new version of McAfee anti-virus 6.01 on Win95 machines the windows games ie. Solitaire, Freecell don't work anymore.

Has anyone run into this problem and has a fix for it?

Do you get any error messages, or do the programs just not load?

I suspect that McAfee 6 updated a DLL file to a version that is not compatable with your version of W95.

If this is the case, there are 2 workarounds once you identify the DLL.
1. Place a copy of the older version in the folder with the executable files for the games.

2. Place a copy of the newer version in the folder that the McAfee exe is located in.

I've tried replacing cards.dll with an earlier version to no luck.

If I disable McAfee background scanning the games work properly. Im stumped.
