Windows XP SP3 shutdown hangs when McAfee Audit Manager Service crashes Visual C++
While shutting down Windows XP SP 3, McAfee Audit Manager service causes a Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library error. "The application has requested the runtime to terminate in an unusual way. Please contact the application's support team for more information." This error happens on about 70% of all desktops and laptops in the office made from the same Ghost image. Without clicking on OK the systems shutdown after a few seconds.
Mathcad 13 crashes during the end of install with a similar issue. Mathcad.exe causes C++ to terminate in an unusual way. The same error happens when launching mathcad.
I'm not a fan of McAfee. Upgrading to a new version of McAfee (8.7) will probably solve the issue.
