McAfee Virusscan 4.03 **WORKING**
Posted 13 January 2000 - 12:08 AM
Users may have experienced a hang at bootup, or an unbelievably long bootup time (>6 mins. on a PIII 450Mhz, 128MB RAM)
The problem lies in the Alert Manager (one of McAfees new fangleedoodas) trying to load as a service at startup. If you have installed McAfee with this option selected, DISABLE IT NOW and all your problems will be solved. I'm now back to more reasonable bootup times (< 2mins).
Man, am I glad to have sorted that one, I was dying with worry for not having a Viruschecker on my machine while on the 'net.
By the way the evaluation version is available on any of Tucows' websites, or you can get it from McAfee direct (but you have to fill out a registration form).
Hope this helps somebody.

That said, I've never managed to get it to co-operate with DirectCD, so people with CD writers may have to be careful.
