McAfee VirusScan 6 Bug
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
If you cannot find it on the McAfee Site...
I hope my fun and games keeps others from the same problem.
PS: Yes I do play the bagpipes!
