    Default [SOLVED] MsK Detector with 10.1.065.000 --> Run MCafee removal tool

    I have just installed the latest version of Zonealarm, 10.1.065.000. When I close the computer at night, a box appears headed : MsK Detector and threatens me. An Internet search says this is part of McAfee.

    I think that McAfee came loaded on the computer when purchased a few years ago, but I got rid of it at once and have had no mention of it since.

    I use Windows XP, Zonealarm, AVG Free, Firefox.

    How can I stop the MsK Detector box appearing?
    Many thanks.

    Probably better to ask to the Mcafee Community forum.

    I have just spent ages looking at the McAfee site and cannot get anywhere with it. It is vast and probably the most unhelpful site I have ever seen.

    Given that my problem only arose when I installed the latest version of Zonealarm, I see it as a Zonealarm problem. Zonealarm has caused part of an old McAfee programme to come to life.

    Thus, Zonealarm should know what has caused this and should be able to suggest a remedy.

    Thanks.

    First time I hear about ZA reviving a dormant Mcafee program. Probably just a coincidence.
    Sorry, I have no other suggestions from my side. May be other users have a better solution for you?

    I agree with Guru Fax,

    I don't think Zone Alarm is at fault..

    Maybe the Following Link will be help you resolve your McAfee problem.

    Thank you for the link, which worked.

    If of interest to others, I downloaded the programme and ran it. Beneath the progress bar, it told of all the files being removed (even though McAfee had bee un-installed years ago), and when it got to MsK, an error message appeared and the whole thing stopped. When I ran it again, expecting the same thing, it went to the end with no error message.

    I have re-booted the computer, closed it, started it and closed it without the MSK appearing. Fingers crossed for this evening's close down.

    Many thanks to you both.
