Tech Shakedown follow-up: Problems with McAfee Security Suite resolved

A couple of weeks ago, I published one of my Tech Shakedown videos that showed McAfee's Security Solution running amok on Windows Vista. As you can see from both the video and the still image published with that post, the software was generating what appeared to be a practically infinite number of red M's ("M" for McAfee) into the tray area at the bottom of Windows Vista, and only for standard users of Vista.

The problem did not occur for administrative users. Since publishing that Tech Shakedown, the problem appears to have been resolved by a software update that McAfee pushed out to all users of its security suite. While I'm not certain as to the exact cause of the problem, I haven't seen it crop up since McAfee issued the update. So, for now, all is good on the McAfee front. Stay tuned for more Tech Shakedowns though (we have some in the pipeline, none about McAfee).
