Odd message under Chrome 8 after installing MCafee VirusScan 8.8i

I have begun to test McAfee Virus Scan 8.8 with bundled Patch 1.

I Have seen Chrome 8 report this strange message on at least two systems.

It’s not very useful to the end user, as all that it states is this: ids_ss_name ids_ss_version.

Has anybody else witnessed this particular problem? If you have seen it, have you also found a solution?  

Also, just in case this is relevant info, we are managing this VSE 8.8 via ePO 4.6.

Error:  another program on your computer would you like to modify with the following add-on:

IDS_SS_NAME IDS_SS_VERSION

By McAfee, Inc .

Location: C:program Files (x86)Common FilesMcAfeesystem….

Install add-ons only from author’s whom you trust.

Allow this installation

You can always change your mind at any time by going to the add-ons manager.

Hi Robert,

You are getting this message because some browsers does not allow extensions and plugins to be silently installed by applications.

It requires a user interaction or approval.

Firefox also reported similar issue. Please see this. This guides how user can allow user controlled ad on’s

Steps:

  1. Select Allow this installation.
  2. Click Continue.

This should resolve your issue. You will not be asked to confirm this again when running Chrome on future occasions.
