McAfee Application Control (MAC) 6.1
Microsoft Windows (all supported versions) 


This article describes an issue where the system may crash on every boot cycle with BugCheck E0100010. 


BugCheck E0100010 is an Application Control generated crash that occurs if the system boots in Enable mode and the inventory (whitelist) is corrupt. 

If the inventory is scanned and determined to be corrupt, Application Control has a recovery process where the system is crashed and booted in Disable mode. The issue occurs because the recovery process fails to put the system in Disable mode, leading to the system getting booted in Enable mode with a corrupt inventory. This causes the crash to occur on every bootup.


The inventory (whitelist) may become corrupt in the following scenarios:
  • There is a crash or hard reboot while the inventory is getting updated for the changes to the files on the system.
  • The inventory has been edited or tampered with in Disable mode or Update mode.


This issue is resolved in MAC, which is available by contacting Technical Support.
