Better choice than a USB having been destroyed by MS.  ;D

Not being able to recommend it to a novice user and a thumbs down are two different things.
If you know how to handle the possible false positives, it can still be an effective tool.

Not from me, i still use it "as is" on all machines


Since i posted this in april  >>  https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=226345.msg1500400#msg1500400
I noticed a huge increase in new install and detections the following weeks ( i wrote down the number from MCShield cloud)

Since then there have been:

31 612    new MCShield installs
447 710  new MCShield detections

So MCShield is still doing a good job out there

Well, I guess that's the end of MCShield (as I doubt it'll get updated anymore). :(

Well, I didn't update any OS, I'm still using MCS and have no probs with my systems.

Yes, that's unfortunate.
I won't run a progie that produces an error.

Hi, yes we have the same error report on my home forum. It would seem that Windows Update created the issue, not sure really.

Sadly, MCShield is kinda EOL.
