It sounds more like it is detecting something on your machine, benign or not.Let it go through the full computer scan and then see if the problem disappears.To prevent this, do not use periods when naming your files, and also remind people that send you attachments not to use periods.With Internet Explorer 11, Enhanced Protection Mode (EPM) might display an erroneous error message that Script Proxy is disabled. To investigate Script Scan performance issues, you must disable EPM. This mode delays all scans of modified files to lower priority background threads.It completely ignores any sort of schedule and the updates continue even if I turn them off.I didn't find much of this problem when I looked it up, but someone did say that it is possible that a virus has attached itself to my mcafee. I uninstalled it and reinstalled it and that didn't help.(Reference: Mc Shield service could encounter a dead-lock situation in an internal utility routine when processing scans of modified files.In this case, the Mc Shield internal dead-lock watchdog timer fires and the Mc Shield service stops.
