    Hi all,

    I have got a Client PC - WOrkgroup
    Running Mcafee Antivirus 8.7i + Mcafee Antispyware

    The PC is a small tablet PC that connects to our network using a 3G card + Cisco VPN Client

    Its found that on the Tablet PC the following files get deleted very often

    C:\program files\Cisco VPN Client\vpnclient.inf

    The 3g wireless profile that is used to connect to the ISP also gets deleted automatically.

    We need to manually replace these files all the time on the Tablet PC's.

    There are 25 such tablet PC's and randomly giving the same problem.

    I'm trying to run the stinger tool from Mcafee but i dont think the tool will detect some malware / trojan.

    Someone kindly assist.

    Regards,
    Thads

    Macfee is a tatal bloatware these days. Your pc might be infected. Use some online scanners such as trend micro housecall or use kaspersky virus removal tool. If nothing is detected and still you face the same problem then please post in the malware removal forum. One of the experts would help you out.

    IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING CORPORATE/COMPANY OWNED COMPUTERS

    Please do not request assistance for corporate/company owned computers. Many changes/deletions are made during the clean up process, some of which may involve uninstalling programs, deleting folders/files, changing settings and/or removing policies etc. As we have no way of knowing for sure if these are actually needed for company operations, malware issues in these cases should be handled by your own IT Departments in order to avoid any undesirable results.

    you have been warned enough times about giving malware advice
    This is NOT a malware issue & it is not up to you to tell a company that their expensive & industry recognised antivirus is bloatware

    You obviously haven't read the post properly & 25 computers ( tablets) are affected
    That makes it outside of the help we offer

    it is almost certainly a settings issue with mcafee access control & you need to use mcafee support for that one. You pay for the support as part of the corporate set up
