This tool doesn't want to work for me. After the installation I got the Windows pop-up saying that the scanner stopped and would be closed. I disabled scanning removable media and hard drives on the programs start and rebooted. After that the program started well but as soon as I insert a USB-stick I again got the pop-up that the scanner stopped and would be closed.
May the FOSS be with you!

Just thought I'd say, I use USB alot with shared Flash Drives as this is how I monitor various aspects of my buisness.
Anyway, I read the pdf file supplied, liked what I read and downloaded/install MCShield.
I think it is compac, and find it a very nice tool. Will use it now ;)
One of the small interesting side benefits of staying in touch with whats going on here on the forum.  8) I've mentioned before, I like to read most everything  :P
Nice little didi Tech :D
You're welcome.

@ Tech,

Just to be sure. Is this the page to downoad MCShield ?

http://amf.mycity.rs/mcshield/downloads.html

Because all my Googling sent me to some feature McAfee has also called MCShield.

Yes, but I don't read Serbian so I took me a while to find it in English

I know but look at these:

http://www.neuber.com/taskmanager/process/mcshield.exe.html
https://community.mcafee.com/message/240900
http://www.file.net/process/mcshield.exe.html

I just wanted to be sure it was the same program version you were taking about. Double checking I guess.

Thanks guys.

I've just installed it on a computer with WinXP and Avast Free without any third-party anti-spyware. Everything is OK. I'll try to install it again at my home notebook with Vista SP2, Avast Free and SpywareTerminator 2012. I'll do it just to send you the logs.
May the FOSS be with you!

I just saw a very interesting effect on the WinXP machine I have mentioned above. I was asked to have a look on a file from a USB stick. So, I inserted the stick and MCShield prompted that it was checking it. Soon I was prompted that some malware were detected and moved to the program's quarantine folder. But as soon as the malware files appeared there, Avast signaled that it detected malware in the folder and moved them to its own chest!

May the FOSS be with you!
