Virus Protection fails on startup

By daltonnetadmin ·
When a WinNT4.0 machine starts up the McAfee NetShield Task Manager fails to start. Error messages are received.

The Event Viewer shows error 1008. Supposedly the latest SP should correct this problem. I have installed SP6a, Uninstalled and reinstalled Virus Software to no avail. The program will launch on startup for 3 or 4 weeks after reinstall, then begins to give the same error messages.

For about $20 you can get Norton Antivirus 2000. It is MUCH better on NT than McAfee and is well worth the investment.

McAfee has far too many quirks/issues/whathaveyou for my liking.

If you buy it from SAMS club you can get it for $9.95 (at least I did).

Bill's answer is not really of any help because I've experienced MORE problems with Norton on NT than McAfee. What version of McAfee are you running 3.0.x, 4.0.2, 4.0.3, 4.5, or 5.1? I recommend 4.0.3 (if that's not the one you are running) as the later version are, like Bill stated, "buggie". Try checking the service to see if it is trying to use an NT account rather than the system account (most desirable). If this doesn't help let me know.
