Subject: McAfee 8.0 crashing Dell D620's

Has anyone else noticed that installing McAfee Enterprise 8.0i with
Patch 11 will crash services.exe (and various other system processes) on
Dell Latitude D620's that maintain the Dell loaded image of XP
Professional?

I have not tested to see if the problem also exists with Patch 10 or
not.

If I reload a Dell D620 from scratch, and install all the same software
Dell pre-installs, McAfee 8.0i+Patch 11 does not crash the machine. So
it appears to be something in the way Dell loads the computer.
