On one when I try to login in, it takes the password and start to login before returning to the select user screen. Another PC which does not have a user password effectively freezes and I cannot get any keystrokes or mouses clicks to work. In both cases choosing another user has allowed me onto that machine and able to access files.
Both are running XP - fully patched and neither are now connected to my network and thus the web. In both cases the problems started after a "McAfee has updated please restart" reboot.
I am going to run MalwareBytes and others to see if the problem can be resolved. However, I need to use another PC to access the web to download MalwareBytes and also speak with McAfee online.
So, I need a temporary AV solution for that PC.
