I'm wondering if anyone else has come across this issue - or has any thoughts about why it is happening.

I've got a PC running Win 7 and McAfee's Firewall Plus program. Anytime I do a lengthy download of any sort on this computer ( and if I have McAfee running ), the computer just freezes and I have to hard boot it. I assume it is McAfee since it happens anytime I do a download with McAfee on ... and it does not do it if I disable McAfee real time scanning and firewall.

Anyone have any thoughts? Thx in advance :wahoo:

Phil

Get rid of Mcafee and get a free AV like AVG or AVAST - Mcafee is a very bloated AV product and has many problems like you mention and still misses many true virii.
