McAfee Total Protection/Security Center 2010 Freeze


Recommended Posts

I have searched all over this forum for solutions to fix the freezes I am getting using McAfee Total Protection 2010 that has McAfee Security Center 10.5, McAfee Virus Scan 14.5.

I have a paid version of MBAM Pro and since the upgrade from Ver. 1.46 to Ver. 1.50 I am experiencing freezes.

I have tried the registry editing suggestions, and am now going to try the solution of adding the McAfee folders and the Drive files to the ignore list in Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.50 and see if that corrects the freezing problem I am experiencing. Also during my search for solutions I ran across the suggestion of using the mbam-clean.exe Ver.1.50.1.0003 after the un-install of MBAM.

Why not add a Pinned Topic with all these suggestions for the fixes to McAfee 2010 products. It is a pain to go on a goose hunt all over this forum to gather all these suggestions/fixes with some suggestions for a lot older versions of this software and nothing for the newer version. Also I had no idea that MBAM had the mbam-clean.exe Ver.1.50.1.0003 to clean any left over remnants after the un-install, and found this after hours of searching and reading. I would think this would be in procedures for a clean install of something along those lines. I tried searching

Hello and welcome, wetlook:

Sorry you are having problems with MBAM and McAfee and with registering your PRO version.

MCAFEE ISSUE:

Until someone who runs McAfee arrives, please have a look here:

http://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?showtopic=65541&st=0&p=392998

http://forums.malwarebytes.org/index.php?showtopic=10138 (scroll down to the McAfee section).

I and many others used to run McAfee (2009 versions) with MBAM PRO, and had no problems.

I am told there may be some problems with MBAM PRO the 2010 McAfee products, largely b/c McAfee removed the ability to add specific program and file exclusions (a feature I am told they will be restoring to their 2011 products in beta testing now).

If there is a way to do it, please add the following to your AV exclusions & your FW permissions:

Note: If you are using a software firewall besides the built in Windows Firewall, you'll need to exclude them from it as well.

For Windows XP:

* C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.exe

* C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamgui.exe

* C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamservice.exe

* C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.dll

* C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamext.dll

* C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\rules.ref

* C:\Windows\System32\drivers\mbam.sys

* C:\Windows\System32\drivers\mbamswissarmy.sys

For Windows Vista or Windows 7:

* C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.exe

* C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamgui.exe

* C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamservice.exe

* C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.dll

* C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamext.dll

* C:\ProgramData\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\rules.ref

* C:\Windows\System32\drivers\mbam.sys

* C:\Windows\System32\drivers\mbamswissarmy.sys

For 64 bit versions of Windows Vista or Windows 7:

* C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.exe

* C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamgui.exe

* C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamservice.exe

* C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.dll

* C:\Program Files (x86)\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamext.dll

* C:\Program Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\rules.ref

* C:\Windows\System32\drivers\mbam.sys

* C:\Windows\SysWoW64\drivers\mbamswissarmy.sys

Note: Once that's done, please make sure that if either of those programs has any sort of web filter, that you add the following as a trusted site:

data-cdn.mbamupdates.com

Remember: If using a software firewall besides the built in Windows Firewall you'll need to exclude MBAM.EXE from it, as well.

The FAQ contains examples of setting file exclusions for some known AV products, here: http://www.malwarebytes.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=10138

The exact steps will depend on what version of which security products you are using. The FAQ article should get you started.

INVALID LICENSE ISSUE:

The solution for this is to uninstall, run the cleaner and reinstall MBAM.

It will only take a few minutes.

Here is how:

NOTE: You need to be logged in as an administrator.

1. Download and run mbam-clean.exe from here.

Note:It will ask to restart your computer; please allow it to do so -- very important!

2. After the computer restarts, temporarily disable your Anti-Virus (AV) and install the latest version of Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from here. (Note: Ignore any promos or ads for other software/products at the mirror sites; and there is no fee to download MBAM Free.)

Note: You will need to reactivate the program using the license you were sent via email, if you are using the PRO version.

3. Launch MBAM (and set the Protection and Registration, if you are using the PRO version).

4. Go to the UPDATE tab, if not done during installation, and check for updates.

5. Restart the computer again (and, if you are using the PRO version, verify that the MBAM icon is in the system tray).

6. Set up any file exclusions as may be required in your Anti-Virus/Internet-Security/Firewall applications. You may use the guides posted in the FAQs here, or ask and we'll explain how to do it. (Specific steps depend on the AntiVirus software vendor & version, and on your computer's OS).

7. Restart your Anti-Virus/Internet-Security applications.

8. Add the program folder(s) for your AV and FW to MBAM's "Ignore List".(Let us know if you need help with this.)

9. Set up your scheduled updates & scheduled scans (this only applies to the PRO version). Scheduler help is available here.

10. Run an MBAM Quick Scan.

So, it would probably be best to deal with the license issue first, by doing the clean reinstall.

Then use the file exclusions listed at the top of my post for step #6 in the reinstall process in order to give MBAM full permission in McAfee, if possible.

Please post back and let us know how it goes,

Hi there Wetlook

Good idea for a pinned topic. I was going to request this a little while ago but never got around to it. I agree with your that would be helpful to have this information all together!

I have spent quite a bit of testing with McAfee trying to resolve freezing problems with MBAM Pro. I'm sure you've been reading a few of my posts. :welcome: I also see daledoc1 has linked to one of them.

So to help get the ball rolling. I'll post the method here that I am still using for 32 bit Windows with good results. (This works for XP, Vista and 7) I will add the info for 64 bit later.

This is for McAfee Total Protection and McAfee Internet Security current versions 2010/11 (32 Bit Operating Systems)

Thanks to GT500 for finding and testing these.

In MalwareBytes go to the Ignore List tab and add the following:

Folders:

C:\Program Files\McAfee

C:\Program Files\McAfee.com

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Mcafee

Files:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\mfeapfk.sys

C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\mfeavfk.sys

C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\mfebopk.sys

C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\mfeclnk.sys

C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\mfefirek.sys

C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\mfehidk.sys

C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\mfendisk.sys

C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\mferkdet.sys

C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\mfetdi2k.sys

To test see if you can run a scan in McAfee. Also try a quick scan in MalwareBytes. For an even better test try running both at once.

Now for the slightly tricky section. Because the current consumer versions of McAfee do not allow scan exclusions you have to do this manually by using regedit. If you do not feel confident in editing the registry then see how you go with the above and skip this part. Adding to the ignore list may well resolve your freezing issue on its own.

Ok so here is how to manually create exclusions for McAfee. Firstly you will have to uncheck "use access protection" In the settings Untick it. With that done you can go to work with regedit. Remember to turn it back on when you are done.

Navigate to the following key. Hkey Local Machine --> Software ---> McAfee ---- System Core ---> VsCore ---> On Access Scanner ---> McShield --> Configuration ---> Default --->

You need to create new string values as follows:

The string values should each be called ExcludedItem_Number (each one should be numbered sequentially)

In my case the first string value I entered was "ExcludedItem_17"

4|3|%PROGRAMFILES%\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbam.exe

4|3|%PROGRAMFILES%\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamgui.exe

4|3|%PROGRAMFILES%\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\mbamservice.exe

4|3|%windir%\system32\drivers\mbam.sys

4|3|%windir%\system32\drivers\mbamswissarmy.sys

When done adding the string values. Locate the key called "NumExcludeItems"

You then need to modify this value to the total number of exclusions. But add one to this number. As there is one exclusion called "ExcludedItem_0"

Before adding the exclusions. My number here was 17. There were 17 excluded items counting the zero one. After adding the excluded items for malwarebytes my total exclusions was 22 (counting the Excludeditem_0) Please refer to the screenshot if you are unsure of how it should look.

I did not have a problem with registering my PRO version. I did not have an issue.

I said I found the mbam-clean.exe after I did a search for clean install, under ISSUE: After purchasing, when I enter my ID and Key, I am told that my ID and Key are invalid.

Thanks for the help.

Thanks for the information. Is it possible for you to export the Parent key and save as .TXT and upload it so that others can more easily review and test.

Thank you again.

No problem! Yes I can export the parent key. This is for the McAfee registry exclusions I presume? Also can I ask is there any way to export the ignored files and folders for MalwareBytes? That always takes me longer to do those than the registry edits for McAfee.

Ok so I have now compiled a more comprehensive list of files and folders to go in the ignore list tab of MalwareBytes

FOLDERS (Most important to resolve freezing and severe system slowdowns)

For Windows XP only:

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\McAfee

For Windows Vista and 7 only - both 32 bit and 64 bit:

C:\Program Data\McAfee

Note: If you cannot find the above folders make sure your system is set to view "Show Hidden files and folders"

For all versions of Windows XP Vista and 7:

C:\Program Files\McAfee

C:\Program Files\McAfee.com

C:\Program Files\Common Files\McAfee

For 64 bit Windows 7 and Vista only:

C:\Program Files(x86)\McAfee

C:\Program Files(x86)\McAfee.com

C:\Program Files(x86)\Common Files\McAfee

FILES (These are McAfee drivers - by adding these you should have better system performance)

For Windows XP\Vista\7 32 bit: (Not for 64 bit refer to note below):

C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\mfeapfk.sys

C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\mfeavfk.sys

C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\mfebopk.sys

C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\mfeclnk.sys

C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\mfefirek.sys

C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\mfehidk.sys

C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\mfendisk.sys

C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\mferkdet.sys

C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\mfetdi2k.sys

Note about the files above. I have found it is not possible to add these files on 64 bit versions of Windows 7 even though the files do exist. I don't understand why this but as explained earlier the folders are the critical ones.

Also as promised these are the manual McAfee registry exclusions for 64 bit Windows 7 and Vista. Please read my post 3 in this thread on how to add these using regedit.

I have run a scan with only McAfee scanning, I have run a scan with only MBAM scanning and I have run a scan with both programs scanning simultaneously. I also ran a scan with Trojan Remover while McAfee and MBAM were scanning with no problems. I was surfing the internet and used Microsoft Word during all this and still no problems.

Thank you again.

I now have the .txt files of the registry keys. Two of them are XP systems that I setup last year. The other is for a Vista 32 bit machine I did yesterday.

The XP systems are interesting as the MBAM exclusion entries are no longer the last ones. They definitely were when I set them up.

If you look you can see a few exclusion entries for Sonic. That obviously would have happened during a McAfee software update. It pleases me that McAfee didn't trash/overwrite my manually added entries for MBAM.

If anyone reading this thread and trying these methods pleast post your results as WetLook has done. Also if you can add your basic system details CPU type/speed, memory Operating system. That would be great as well. :)

So far: no problems!!!! (It's been 7 days and still running smooth.)

Being all thumbs when it comes to this technical stuff I say:

A BIG,BIG,BIG thank you and an even BIGGER cyber-hug from me to you and everyone else who posted their wisdom on this forum.
