On Access Scanner from NetShield will not start v4.5 SP1
Posted on 2004-08-31
I have recently cleaned up our server (w2k Advanced Svr) Spyware, etc was running on it. It is completely patched from Microsoft's website and needs no further critical updates. The problem is every time I reboot the server I cannot start the On Access Scanner for Netshield. I have tried starting services individually, Task Manager then McShield but it gives an error 1607 terminated unexpectedly. I have unistalled it completey, registry pieces and all then rebooted. I reinstalled it and added the service pack but it just wont start up. I have scanned this server with Alluria's spyware, Trojan Hunter and run anti-virus check from another w2k server (McAfee Netshield 4.5 SP1). I have been to the Network Associates website and have checked run commands in the registry to ensure nothing is running at startup.
If anyone has any ideas that I could try, save installing v7 or 8, because like I said it works great on the other w2k server running the same software.
I appreciate any help you can give. I would even greatly appreciate it if someone could tell me files, dates, and versions for the anti-virus package so I can double-check that I don't have a hi-jacker on the exe. Incidently, it SHSTAT.EXE. I also tried running it from a command line using "/enable" to no avail. I have also checked what is running using WinTask Pro utility, nothing suspicious found.
Because of the complexity of this question and the urgency of the matter, I am going to give it the full points allowed.
