McAfee seems to cause Outlook Not Responding
Posted on 2002-07-23
I need your experience with McAfee VirusScan 6.0 causing Outlook 2000 to hang.
The problem is this. Intermittently (not with every check) my Outlook 2000 hangs (stops responding) during email download (simple POP3). I have to shutdown and restart Outlook to continue work, and at least one email will never be downloaded, effectively getting lost. (Figured that out by turning on 'leave a copy on server'.)
Also, I found that Outlook stays in memory (visible in Task Manager) after I shut it down.
Finally, there is a weird problem with drag and drop moving of emails to different folders.
I've succeeded in removing the problems by disabling McAfee email scan. But that doesn't really satisfy.
Who is *familiar* with this problem and *knows* the solution? (I can come up with reinstall, virus scan, scandisk, and other obvious attempts myself.)
