VB.net Blank MsgBox

By talbot ·
I was getting a blank button in my msgbox, and blank text. I found the answer to my problem on .net247

Its to do with McAfee ViruScan version 8 and its buffer overun protection.
Turning off the buffer overun protection from the VirusScan console cured the problem.
I'm going to let Network Associates know as my company subscribes to them and we have 250 client licences!
Hope this will be of use to others.

Hi. Thank God for smart people like you and Google. I want to thank you for doing all this research and figuring out what the heck was going on. And I want to thank Google for putting me in touch with your post by simply searching 'Visual Basic .NET MsgBox Blank'. I got to your post in seconds. It's times like these I'm amazed with the web and how it saves time and puts people together in some amazing ways.

As for this annoyance of a problem, you'd think Network Associates would have a patch out by now or something!

Upgrade Mcafee Viruscan Enterpise v. 8.0i with last patch 10 (download from Nai site the new program version). Works fine without disabling the Overflow Buffer.
Thanks for the solution 1.
