seemingly at random - mostly its off. On a coworker's computer. IT has already been here, fixed it, and it disabled five minutes after they left.

Sounds like a virus they're not aware of yet :D

They can't figure out how it was ever down to begin with. Its updated regularly through the network.

One of the IT guys came back and sifted through the registry and didn't find anything (don't know if he was looking for messed up McAfee entries or likely virus suspects). They've already uninstalled/reinstalle McAfee once.

I vote for an online scan overnight. If they don't find anything, wipe it and reinstall everything.

I'm sure you were expecting this:

McAfee sucks...even more than the other anti-viri

I've got Norton at home. I like it better, but it once scanned one of my games as infected. :bash:

You play so badly you corrupted it?? ;)

Possible. It was a known issue. It was a Baldur's Gate series game, Neverwinter Nights, or maybe Pool of Radiance2 (which played badly enough on its own).
