:mad: I have WIN98SE, i have Mcafee virus scan,
and the security center.....Everytime i'm on-line,,
and McAfee starts an automatic download of updates,
my screen always freezes up. Does anyone know if there's a quick fix for this,,,,,,other than restarting
my computer?

I went in and disabled the auto-update, and enabled the
manual update, whether or not this will make a difference
or not,,,I don't know. I'm going to give it one more shot
before i get rid of it. Thanks for your reply, i'll keep it in mind, chuck-HD.
