Can't auto startup and blue screen

Recommended Posts


You did not state your McAfee product version (other than mention of antivirus). Knowing the actual name & version number is key information.

Also, did you check McAfee support to find out where & how to tweak McAfee trust exclusions? https://community.mc....com/index.jspa

BTW, MBAM is a delayed startup item when Windows starts up. There will be a bit of lag time before it shows up in task bar when Windows starts.

P.S. IF your system is getting a blue BSOD, it is likewise very important to jot down & know what the actual STOP code is, along with pertinent details shown with it.
