Solved: MCUICNT.exe
Every time that I shut down my PC, I get an error message saying that MCUICNT.exe could not shut down properly. I then need to click on 'End Now' to complete shut down of the computer.

I've done a bit of research and I see that MCUICNT.exe is something to do with McAfee.

Does anyone know why I might be getting this message and how I can fix it? Thanks

My computer is a Dell Dimension 3000 running Windows XP. It's got a 30GB hard drive, 2GB of RAM and a 2.66Ghz processor.

Are there a lot of other programs running in the background?

Click here to download HJTInstall.exe
  • Save HJTInstall.exe to your desktop.
  • Doubleclick on the HJTInstall.exe icon on your desktop.
  • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis .
  • Click on Install.
  • It will create a HijackThis icon on the desktop.
  • Once installed, it will launch Hijackthis.
  • Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and the log should open in notepad.
  • Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
  • Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
  • DO NOT have Hijackthis fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

It had stopped but I actually noticed it happen again last night when I went to shut down. When it happened before I would need to click 'ok' when it said MCUICNT.exe would not close properly, but now the computer still shuts down anyway without me doing anything when the message appears.
