    Unhappy McAfee VirusScan 6 Bug

    Hi All;

    I just found a real nasty bug in VirusScan 6
    The Bug involves Windows XP (no Flames!!!)
    This bug if you do not install the patch
    from McAfee will delete all your e-mail
    I lost 3 years of mail archives due to the bug.
    There is a warning on there website but
    I purchased this software from a local store
    so I had no idea until I opened up my e-mail
    program and no e-mails.
    Yes it was Outlook Express 6.
    Do not open OE until you apply the patch
    otherwise your TOAST!!!
    The links for the patch is as follows
    http://www.bagpipes.net/files/virus/CR7560.exe
    If you cannot find it on the McAfee Site...

    I hope my fun and games keeps others from the same problem.
