    forgive me if this is in the wrong place.

    when i try to get to help and support a warning from mcafee pops up,
    help ctr. exe contains suspicious scripting activity and has been stopped.

    i click allow this time and nothing happens. i try disabling firewall and go to help and support and computer restarted o_O

    i checked help folder for viruses...it's clean.

    spybot, adaware, and ms antispy all clean.

    never had a prob. with this before.....any ideas?

    thanks in adv. t bone

  3. Please excuse the interruption t-bone ....

    @ tom772 - Go ahead and provide live links for the folk's requesting assistance,
    I highly doubt your experiencing any of the same issues (which are not presently open for discussion) I face.


    Post on people! :cool:

  5. T bone,

    Would you happen to have another type of script-stopper activated (ScriptDefender, ScripTrap ...)? Any recent updates? How about double-checking if the Help and Support service is at least set to manual?

    Look for setting's in Active Shield, not the firewall.
    BTW, it would be nice to know your OS? :)

    ************************

    PS Tom - Using FF? If so it tends to have issues with the forum soft, V-Bulletin. Next time before preview,
    do your c/p then wrap this without arrows at the beginning [<url>] ... and this at the end of your link [</url>]. ;)

    Try some preview's, when satisfied just close your current window to escape.

    thanks for all the replys.

    between then and now i figured out i had to uncheck the box in virus scan options for script stopper.
    still puzzled as to why nothing happened when i tried "allow script this time" and nothing happened....oh well thanks again.
