      Mcafee seems very good at causing these errors, which is one of the reasons few on the forum use it. Uninstall it and your problem may go away, but unfortunately, very often it leaves a legacy which prevents things returning to normal.
      I don't know if anyone has persevered with it and got it working properly, if there are and he is reading the forum maybe he can tell which settings to use.

      i've used McAfee for 7 years with no issues whatsoever and reccommend it to anyone over Norton any day of the week......BUT I've never installed the privacy service as this can cause all sorts of bother

      can't fault it otherwise...

      As said above there is your problem. Personally I use Avast as it does not interfere with any programs.
