100% Disk

I do not understand why i setup McAfee Live Update for my laptop, the computer very slow and slow. Can not open Microsoft office, browser and some things like that.

And always time meet to full 100% Disk.

The laptop was broken and tired for a long time

I used McAfee Virtual Technician to support me troubleshoot and repair it. But nothing else to know (satisfactory)

Now, I removed it and help me how to fix it before I set up again.

Many thanks!

TOSHIBA

Intel Core i3 4000M CPU@2.4Ghz-3Mb

RAM: 8Gb

System Type: 64-bit

Re: 100% Disk

Have you got or had any other antivirus or firewall installed on the laptop. These have to be first removed by their own removal tool then install Mcafee.

When you uninstalled McAfee did you use the MCPR removal tool?

MCPR

IF still an issue best call support in your country

Re: 100% Disk

Hi

Am curious to know which process/service is utilizing the disk. Perhaps a screenshot with Disk Usage of top Apps/processes might help.

Re: 100% Disk

The current issue was originally noted 5/9/16, but I did not have the problem until now (7/23/18) .  I recently noticed that McAfee Update Launcher is often dominating my disc useage, up to 100 percent for long periods.  This has been going on now for a couple weeks.  McAfee updates within the last two weeks now displays a different Total Protection user screen, so possibly the excessive disc useage is related to those updates.

It seems like McAfee comes through with updates, but problems arise that use excessive CPU, memory and/ or disc.  I had a problem, also noted by the community, back in the Spring 2018 of McAfee Core Module dominating CPU, memory and disc.  That problem took a several months for McAfee to resolve.  The updates are not being screened and tested very well for these problems.
