Receiving error messages when using McAfee's First Aid


I have "First Aid" install with windows 98 I just recently started getting system crash notices which say "STAck Overflow" ,I can aut0-fix with first aid and continue, but my systems doesn't not respond quickly. You have to click on the item or action you want more than once to get application to open. Any ideas what would be wrong? or is the autofix, really fixing the stack overflow problem?

Thank you.

I contacted McAfee through their technical support chat line They suggest you uninstall First Aid and then reinstall it in safemode The reason to install it in safemode is to avoid any conflicts while installing I hope this answers your question If you have any future problems, please feel free to contact us at

Good Luck
